Fuel Efficiency Rating
This reborn S-class cabriolet is available in three models, which mirror those of the coupe: the 449-hp S550 with a 4.7-liter twin-turbo V-8, the AMG S63 with its 577-hp twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-8, and the AMG S65 featuring a twin-turbo V-12 making 621 horsepower as well as 738 lb-ft of torque. The S550 coupe comes standard with all-wheel drive but the S550 cabriolet is rear-wheel drive, the thinking being that it’s likely to sell predominantly in warm-weather climates. The S63 cabriolet retains all-wheel drive just like the coupe, mostly to aid in putting the engine’s tremendous torque to the ground. And while the S65 seemingly could use all-wheel drive for the same reason, it’s rear-drive only, as is its fixed-roof sibling.
