If you want the wind in your face, but you don't want some pokey old car, the C63 Cabrio will be right up your alley.

There are two available trim levels -- the C63 and the C63 S.

The "standard" C63 touts 469 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque from a 4.0-liter, turbocharged eight-cylinder engine.

Move up to the C63 S, and output jumps to 503 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.

Both engines mate to a seven-speed automatic, and both are rear-wheel drive only.

The C63 S gets a fair bit more kit than the C63, including carbon-ceramic front brakes, an electronic limited-slip differential, and 19-inch alloy wheels.

The C63 S also shaves 0.1 second off the 0-60 mph time, from 4.1 seconds to 4 dead.

I Got an Early Look at Intel's Glass Packaging Tech for Faster Chips
Rahul Manepalli, right, Intel's module engineering leader, shows a glass substrate panel before it's sliced into the small rectangles that will be bonded to the undersides of hundreds of test processors. The technology, shown here at Intel's CH8 facility in Chandler, Arizona, stands to improve performance and power consumption of advanced processors arriving later this decade. Glass substrates should permit physically larger processors comprised of several small "chiplets" for AI and data center work, but Intel expects they'll trickle down to PCs, too.
