It is immediately apparent that the 2017 Mercedes-AMG S63 Cabriolet is built by car enthusiasts for car enthusiasts.

For the first time in its 48-year history, Mercedes-AMG is offering a four-seater convertible in the S-Class segment. The new model offers its driver and up to three passengers space to travel in style.

It is immediately apparent that the 2017 Mercedes-AMG S63 Cabriolet is built by car enthusiasts for car enthusiasts. "The new S63 Cabriolet is another fascinating AMG dream car from Affalterbach," says Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. "The new model demonstrates in impressive style that we are keeping our foot firmly on the gas in 2015. We are continuing our model initiative with a vengeance - in all market segments."

The basis for the vehicle's dynamic character is provided by the particularly rigid bodyshell structure featuring innovative solutions such as the luggage compartment bulkhead made of magnesium.

The increase in weight, which is inherent to the design of a convertible, has been limited through the use of a lightweight lithium-ion battery, AMG light-alloy wheels produced by means of a sophisticated forging process and the weight-optimized AMG high-performance composite brake system. In addition, large parts of the shell and the front section are made of aluminum, as is the vehicle's rear end.

The 2017 Mercedes-AMG S63 Cabriolet will have its world premiere at the Frankfurt International Motor Show. It will go on sale in the U.S. market in late spring.

Exterior: Expression of Sportiness and Performance

The 2017 Mercedes-AMG S63 Cabriolet boasts exciting looks to emphasize its sporty performance: Numerous aerodynamic elements underscore the outstanding driving dynamics: the front end is dominated by the three-dimensional "twin-blade" radiator grille in silver chrome. Under the radiator grille is the "A-wing": this three-dimensional aerodynamic feature is painted in the body color and sports the stylized "A" that is a hallmark of AMG vehicles. Large, black flics surround the outer cooling air intakes. Down below, the front splitter in silver chrome optimizes the flow of air to the cooling modules. It also makes the vehicle appear closer to the road.

A similar effect is created by the side sill panels with their high-quality, three-dimensional inserts in silver chrome. Together with the lower feature line, these inserts make the S63 Cabriolet exude dynamism even when it is at a standstill.

At the rear, the diffuser insert in high-gloss black also catches the eye straight away. The lower trim element in silver chrome is reminiscent of the A-wing at the front and provides an effective contrast. The two chromed twin tailpipes of the exhaust system with sports flaps are perfectly integrated into the diffuser insert.
