Mercedes-Benz Confirms S-Class Cabriolet
Mercedes R&D boss confirms an S-Class Convertible due out in 2015

Mercedes-Benz last offered a cabriolet version of their flagship S-Class in 1972. The W111 Convertible was last seen from 1961 as the 220SE and 280SE 3.5 to 1971 when it was shelved by Mercedes.
But now, over 30 years later, Mercedes-Benz is working to bring back the luxury convertible. Based on the S-Class Coupe Concept we saw at the Frankfurt Motor Show earlier this month (pictured above), the S-Class cabriolet will debut nearly a year after the coupe in 2015.
The convertible S-Class will have a fabric top and will have the option of twin-turbocharged V8 or V12 engines.
