The German manufacturer Mercedes-Benz is on a design revolution, the new 2017 Mercedes-AMG S65 Cabriolet coupe is the latest addition to the Mercedes S-class family and it heads the sedan hierarchy. The new S65 Cabriolet was introduced to the public at the Detroit Motor show on 11th January 2016. The German convertible is a sports car for those with loads of cash to afford a car that will make them feel pampered. For a person seeking a super luxurious car, the New AMG S65 2017 is the way to go, the other luxurious alternatives would be the 2016 Rolls Royce Dawn, 2017 Bentley Continental GT Speed convertible, the convertible 2017 BMW M6 and the 2017 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante.
Interior and Exterior Design
The new 2017 Mercedes-AMG S65 Cabriolet coupe is not so different from the S63 physically, apart from the air scarf neck heaters as well as heated armrests and the soft acoustic top that is multi-layered. The seats are made of leather; the soundtrack of the new AMG S65 Cabriolet, V-12, is amazing, classier and more aggressive than the V-8. In terms of appearance, it looks like the S-class Coupe is from halfway down whose concept came from the S-Class Sedan.
The car is long and wide making it appear sleek and sexy. The wheels are 20 inches making it look larger than it actually is. It is available in black, red, blue and beige colors. The competitors: 2016 Rolls Royce Dawn, 2015 Bentley Continental GT Speed convertible, still fall short though, as the Cabriolet is still the most beautiful and has the most advanced technology.
Engine and Mileage Horsepower, Performance
This car is powered by a 5.5 liter engine, twin-turbo V-12. It generates 621 horsepower. The German convertible is slightly better than its predecessor, 2015 Mercedes-Benz AMG S65 Cabriolet based on its twin-turbo V-12 compared to the predecessor’s twin turbo V-8. The horsepower is 621 compared to the predecessor’s 577. The S65 will, however, still be slower than the S63 because it is heavier. It can still hit a speed of 60mph in only 4.0 seconds though. The S65 joins the BMW 6-series and the Bentley Continental GTC with the 12 cylinder engine.

New 2017 Mercedes-AMG S65 Cabriolet Price and Release date
The Mercedes-AMG S65 Cabriolet was showcased at the Detroit Motor show in January. It is set to go on sale in April in the country of manufacture, Germany. It is expected to cost approximately $250,000 U.S. dollars which is more than the S65 Coupe which retails at $234,050 U.S. dollars.
The 2017 Mercedes-AMG S65 Cabriolet is a fuel guzzler making it impractical for running day to day errands. It is the 9th in the S-class series and the most worthy competitor to the Bentley Continental GTC. The rear seat lacks space making it a one person car as opposed to a family car. This car is arguably the most luxurious and comfortable of its kind; it speaks luxury all the way!
