It's been a busy three weeks for MB fans. In less than a month, Mercedes-Benz has introduced not only their 2017 C-Coupe and two high-performance variants of their C63 AMG Coupe, but now their flagship convertible, the S-Class Cabriolet for 2017. It's been nearly 45 years since MB has delivered an open-top flagship and the occasion has been lost on its designers who've packed it with plenty of AMG bells and whistles. In addition to its long lines and dashing good looks, under the hood you'll find a 577HP twin-turbo 5.5L V8 engine that produces 664 lb-ft of torque via a 4MATIC all-wheel-drive 7-speed transmission. Also boasting AIRMATIC air suspension, an advanced exhaust system, and - wait to you hear this - emergency rollbars that deploy from the headrests when a roll-over is detected. Delivery in the United States is expected in Spring of 2016.
