If you have been waiting for the date for when the 2016 Mercedes-AMG S65 Cabriolet will finally be released, then we have some good news for you, as deliveries are said to begin from April 2016. However, before then people will be able to get up close and personal with the S65 Cabriolet at the Detroit Auto Show.
Ever since the S65 Cabriolet was first introduced people have been waiting for the Mercedes-AMG performance version to be released. We can tell you that this new model makes use of the same engine used to power the S65 Coupé, which is the twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre V12 powerplant.
This means you get the same 621bhp and 737lb ft of torque between 2300 and 4300rpm as the hardtop version. It also has the same 0-62mph time as the S65 Coupé, which is 4.1 seconds. As for the top speed, this will be limited to 155 miles per hour as usual.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed automatic transmission, and the way it performs can be altered with one of three different driving modes. These are Controlled Efficient, Sport and Manual.
There is no denying that the 2016 Mercedes-AMG S65 Cabriolet has a far improved look than other S-Class Cabriolet models or even the Mercedes-AMG S65 with its roof.
As for its price, nothing official has been announced yet, although with the Coupé costing £183,075, the convertible version is expected to cost around £200,000.
