Mercedes S-Class Cabrio Sketch Is Gorgeous And You Should Love It.

For a long time, I did not like Mercedes Design. All the way back to the failed Daimler-Chrysler venture and even in the 80s and 90s when some of the most iconic shapes Merc ever made were being produced, I was not a fan. But recently, I’ve been coming around. When the CLA dropped, I loathed it. Now, I’m a fan and the back-end which I thought was designed by a toddler, seems elegant yet sporty. I found the new C-class to be boring, yet after giving it a chance, I really enjoy the styling and appreciate it for what it is; a simpler, cheaper, but just as refined S-class. We’ll be driving the new C-class soon so keep an eye out for that review.

So what does Merc have up it’s sleeve next? The S-class cabriolet of course and hooooooo boy does it look good.

S-Class Cabrio Sketch

According to Road & Track, we’ll be getting this rolling piece of art next year and it will be the first S-Class convertible since 1971. The 2-door, 4-seat layout mimics the coupe, but there are questions as to what this car will challenge. An Aston Martin drop top? BMW sure doesn’t make a 7-series with open sky as a roof. It remains to be seen whether this car will take as a true west coast cruiser. Whatever it challenges, it’ll certainly look just as good, if not better, than the competition.
