The design is identical to the Mercedes S Class Coupe, save for the roof chopped off. According to spyshots, it will adopt a fabric roof top, rather than a foldable hard top. It’s unclear as to how much weight does the motors, other components and chassis strengthening add.

Some of the confirmed features for the 2-door 2+2 Mercedes S Class Cabriolet include automatic wind protection system AIRCAP, AIRSCARF neck-level heating, heated armrests, seat heaters for the rear seats and an intelligent fully automatic climate control.
