2014 Mercedes S-Class Convertible

Now that Daimler’s ultra-luxury Maybach brand has been axed due to falling sales, the Mercedes S-Class is going to be getting a bit more attention to make up for the hole in the lineup. Previous rumors on a possible S-Class Convertible have been born and put to rest in the past, but the time may have finally come for those rumors to be resurrected.

According to CarAdvice, the future Mercedes S-Class Convertible has officially been confirmed by Mercedes insiders and will be based on the Ocean Drive Concept unveiled at the 2007 Detroit Motor Show. The model will be offered as an alternative to the very unsuccessful Maybach Laundalet , but unlike it, the S-Class Convertible will feature a folding fabric roof and will be offered in a two-door configuration.

When produced, the Mercedes S-Class Convertible will be a strong competitor for the likes of the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe , but will have the benefit of being considerably cheaper.

The technology and engine line-up for the Convertible S-Class will be borrowed from its sedan version set to be unveiled in 2013 and will arrive a few months after the sedan is unveiled.

Does this S-Class grown? I think it’s still the same platform, but with some enhancements.

It increased in size and though its proportions remain the same from its former model, but the fuel economy worked it out.

This is an idea that I like and have liked ever since Mercedes released this concept in 2007. I think it’ll remain a good concept and as long as all the structural issues are sorted out.

Ocean drive is a good concept, in fact, to have the next S-class based on it will be terrific.

I don’t get it, the 2014 S-Class will be based on the 2007 Ocean drive? Having a convertible at this time is a good idea, but what should they must do is to start it in the unique way, just like the former S-class models.

S-Class convertible is a one good concept. This is from 2007 right? This time might be perfect for this Ocean Drive to be an alternative to the failed Laundalet.
