Company releases first teaser pic of the upcoming flagship cabriolet.
After making a big splash with the reveal of its new C-Class Coupe the other day, Mercedes-Benz is already preparing for its next big reveal. Heading back to the top of the range, the company has released an early teaser image of the 6th member of the S-Class family, the soon-to-be-unveiled S-Class Coupe Cabriolet. The picture is in fact a design sketch of the company's new flagship convertible 'leaked' by the company itself, but it offers quite a few hints of what the final car will look like when we meet it in a few weeks.
Keeping 'Coupe' as part of the car's name, Mercedes has also carried over much of the design from the S-Class Coupe that the car is based on. It features the same front end, sides and rear, and is differentiated only by the folding fabric top. With the roof down, the car's leather interior, here in blue and white, is seen extending onto the decklid behind the rear headrests. It will also retain the coupe's choice of engines and availability in all- and rear-wheel drive configurations. The car's official debut will take place at next month's IAA Frankfurt Motor Show 2015, and it is expected to go on sale in the US in 2016. It will be the first S-Class Cabriolet in the Mercedes lineup since 1971.
