    That's a different category.

    The last one had some cache for industrialists, bankers and dictators. This new one will become standard equipment for Hollywood wives.

     


    Re: S63 Cabriolet

    I was last Saturday at AMG and had a chance to get a peak on it. 

    The car is absolutely stunning. Perfect car for families. 

    Only concern - the price is a bit stiff. As AMG we are talking beyond 200k€ - an comparable M6 Convertible is almost half that price. Yes - the Benz is special, but does it give that much more? In power the S63 or M6 is comparable, in driving dynamics the BMW might be even more sporty and in luxury the S will have his head up. Same price, the S would be my winner, but double price I rather would take a BMW.

    I take your point. However, I was in Monaco last week (for work) and sadly most of the cruising was being done by 599 GTOs !

    I drove an M6C earlier this year. I like the looks, especially the rear window which retracts.

    However, it pipes fake engine noise into the cabin. I found the noise very irritating, it was a drone, like noise from a very cheap computer game. Completely put me off the M6.

    And the steering was completely feel free.


    Re: S63 Cabriolet

    Totally boring car at 120k. At 200k it is just plain stupid.


    Re: S63 Cabriolet

    Although I'm not a fan of 4 seats convertible, I think the Maserati GranCabrio is the best in class.

    it seems MB are aiming for the Bentley GTC crowd with this one.


    Re: S63 Cabriolet

    I would totally take this over the Bentley, just look at it, the interior is so youthful and fresh and feels more luxurious than the Bentley already. The Bentley's interior is so dated, it looks like they were designed for 120 year olds.

    Exterior wise this also wins. The bodywork seems to wrap tightly around body components, vs the extra fat everywhere on the Bentley.

    Actually very valid point.

    And - the Maserati might be stopped to be produced very soon. If you go and get a second hand midly used (maybe max 10.000km) you can't go wrong. The car will be very stable. Not to forget that noise .... the Maserati sounds soooo good!


    Re: S63 Cabriolet

    The front looks like any Mercedes. The rear is a sort of a weird AMG GT inspired thing. Inside looks nice, but so is the much cheaper S class. So basically you are paying a premium price for a car that has nothing special about it design or specs wise...

    Certainly you cant compare the Maserati with the S-Coupe. But hey.... it is a fine automobile with an beautiful engine - and the car will turn to be a classic.

    Maserati looks awful to my eyes, with that ridiculous gaping wide open mouth

    I rather have a Skoda
