Mercedes Benz Convertible Cars:
Mercedes Benz has one of the most illustrious histories in motoring. Its origins can be traced back to Karl Benz – the creator of the very first petrol powered car. The Mercedes brand name was first used in 1901 by Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft while the first Mercedes Benz branded cars did not appear until 1926.
Convertible Mercedes have been available throughout this long history but a wider range are made today than ever before. Drivers can choose from anything from the compact 2 seater SLK roadster to the family sized E-Class convertible with ample seating for four. There has even been talk of a large S-Class based four door convertible. The concept known as ‘Ocean Drive’ was given the go-ahead back in 2006 but it appears to have been another victim of the global recession. A C-Class Convertible is rumoured to be introduced based on the current coupé with 2+2 seating, to fit between the larger E-Class and SLK Roadster in size. Like the E-class It is expected to use a fabric roof rather than the folding hardtop seen on the SLK and SL.
At the upper end of the range is the Mercedes Benz SL luxury sports car and the SLS AMG Roadster super car. Both have massive power on tap but the SLS is the more performance focused of the two while the SL suits drivers who require the comfort and luxuries to make the car suitable for long journeys and every day use.

Mercedes Benz have indicated that there is a high likelihood of an S-Class Convertible model as part of the new platform. The Mercedes S-Class Convertible is likely to closely resemble the Coupe (pictured here) which was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG already has a fairly niche market – those who require a roadster with huge amounts power from a V12 engine but with the armchair comfort of a gentleman’s club. The trouble is those with yachts and private jets on hand often require something a little more discrete and that is where the new Brabus 800 comes in.
