Mercedes confirmed the Ocean Drive Concept’s production
Mercedes S-Class is ready to raise its top. Mercedes has announced that the Ocean Drive concept unveiled at Detroit Motor Show will go into production.
The Ocean Drive concept has a backbone chassis with a full-length transmission tunnel helping to replace the strength lost by cutting off the roof. As a result, the big drop-top is effectively a four-seater. To keep the weight down and improve packaging, it features a compact fabric hood rather than a complicated folding metal top.
The S-Class Convertible will be powered by a 5.5 liter V12 engine producing 520 horsepower. It will compete with the Audi A7 Convertible.
