2017 Mercedes-Benz S550 Cabriolet

2017 Mercedes-Benz S550 Cabriolet
In convertible segment if you look apart from BMW 6-series, Bentley or Rolls-Royce, only left choice is a tiny too lowborn the Mercedes-Benz S-class cabriolet.

The S-class cabriolet is the large and most affluent among five version formations of cabriolets. S550 equipped with 4.7 liter twin turbo intercooled V-8 using direct fuel injection system comes with rear wheel drive system is able to produce 449 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque paired with nine speed automatic transmission. Remember S63 and S65 AMG offers more than 500 horsepower. The S carriage’s moving formations, larger-than-life quotients, and dandified being make illustrations of an indulgence vessel.

Not much satisfaction in terms of driving experience, weighing 4786 pounds, the S-class cabriolet plunges and pitches and rotates an anti monopoly amount along with suspension in Comfort mode where the body motions seem at likelihoods with the tight contacts consigned through the gigantic, 20 inch wheels with low profile tires. In Sport mode, we actually entangled more cozy cruising, which tightens up body motions without making the drive at all offensive. S550 provides few unseemly motions planting up on abrasive roads, but neither is it some category of capitalistic Buick Cascada. Though champion remain fasten and quiet on smooth roads.

Twin turbo V-8 clocks 4.4 seconds to reach 60 mph from zero and quarter mile within 13 seconds, faster than the rear-drive S550 sedan which clocks 4.9 seconds and the all-wheel-drive S550 coupe taking 4.5 seconds.
