The S-Class Cabriolet replaces the CL-Class in the Mercedes-Benz lineup.
The S-Class Cabriolet joins Benz's flagship family two years after the launch of the current S-Class family.
Connected to the 5.5-liter V-8 engine is a seven-speed multi-clutch transmission.
An AMG-tuned 4Matic all-wheel-drive system distributes 33 percent of engine torque to the front wheels, while 67 percent of torque goes to the rear wheels.
On winding roads, the S63 handles itself quite well for a near-4,900 pound vehicle.
The Airmatic suspension has also been tuned by AMG offering firmer "Sport" and "Comfort" settings compared to the base S-Class Cabriolet.
For added clearance and a better ride on rougher roads, the air suspension system can raise the car by 1.2 inches.
