2017 Mercedes-AMG S65 Cabriolet
The Mercedes-AMG S65 cabriolet meet the bill nicely, a four-place convertible with a v-12 and a quarter-million-dollar value label. The S65 dreadnought-class convertible is 198.6 inches long, about eight inches longer than a Bentley Continental GT convertible. While the S65 coupe is an axenic shot of highly civilized androgen, the convertible roof adds a gender-bending grade. If Ziggy romanticism flew in present, they’d move one of these for him.

It’s got 621 horsepower, churns out 738 lb-ft of torque, lightnings to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds, and clears the quarter-mile in 12.3 at 120 mph. Moving the solace and bowels to use, I proceeded to a beautiful increase municipality. I were just long enough to fill the tank (which the V-12 sucks adust to the sound of 16 mpg).

The S65 cabriolet handles like a S-class. Which is to say that the AMG care does not imbue it with the convulsive, rip-roaring and tetchy attribute of the Mercdes-AMG C63. Removing the roof from the coupe does, however, cause a bit more malleability than one might expect from Stuttgart’s most popular enterprises of slope vaults. We moved 0.91 g on the skidpad, acceptable than the 0.88 g we saw with a Mercedes-Benz S550 cabriolet, although it doesn’t equal the 0.94 g we got from the Dodge Charger Hellcat.

The creaseless action of the 12-hole block under the S65’s hood force us ever forward, the star immersing debased off the port side. Even with the wind beating through the compartment, Mercedes’ Aircap anti-striking system doesn’t work as well here as it did on the E-class droptop, the strong Burmester sound system reliably revolved the sound up, around and through me.

The enormous Benz goes about its enterprises without agitations, the S65 cabriolet remains more car than capitalistic scepter. Some say the V-8–energy S63 is car enough. To be convinced, it’s a satisfactory car, but you want the full V-12 phenomenon. There’s no coherent reason to disburse the extra $77,195, but the extra four solids somehow finish the device. At this disbursing stage, the money is academic, informing out that one could buy both a S63 cabriolet and a Porsche 718 Boxster S for less than the value of a S65 misses the component.

After all, the enormous AMG still undercuts both the Rolls-Royce Dawn and the Bentley Continental GT Speed convertible. The V12 Biturbo emblem sends moving manservants into joyous apoplectic fits. Don’t make the nonaccomplishment of acting the S65 cabriolet as a deviation of a lesser car, it’s its own device, one that stands on its own strange benefits.
