EXPANDING its portfolio of ' dream cars', Mercedes- Benz, the country's largest luxury car maker, on Wednesday launched the S- Class Cabriolet and the C- Class Cabriolet at price tags of Rs 2.25 crore and Rs 60 lakh, respectively ( all prices ex- showroom, Delhi).

The ' open to drive soft top cars' come with a host of personalisation options and helped Mercedes- Benz redefine the top end of motoring. To make every S- Class Cabriolet truly unique in India, Mercedes- Benz India offers more than 13,000 possible customisation combinations to ensure no two S- Cabriolets in India are similar.

Roland Folger, Managing Director and CEO, Mercedes- Benz India said, " We have seen strong tractions for these models with sales reaching threedigit figures in the Indian market, prompting us to bring new options for our discerning customers.

We have taken the convertible market beyond the earlier SLC and SLK models to the regular cars with the new S and C- Class in four- seater options. In fact the C- Class Cabriolet is the first ever cabriolet to be made on the C- Class platform by Mercedes- Benz." The C- Class Cabriolet is powered by a 2.0- litre 4- cylinder turbocharged engine that's capable of delivering 241 bhp and 370 Nm of torque and also comes mated to a 9- speed 9G- Tronic Transmission.

It goes 0- 100 kmph in a mere 6.4 seconds and achieves top speed of 250 km/ h. On the other hand, the mightier S- Class Cabriolet Scintillating Performance comes with 0 - 100 kmph in just 4.6 seconds, thanks to its V8 petrol engine that produces 455 hp or 700 Nm of torque.

Adding frenzy to the audio- video circuit, Mercedes- Benz has featured a Burmester Surround Sound System with high- performance speakers. Like the S- Class Cabriolet Burmester comes with 23 specially designed speakers, 24 amplifier channels and a total system output of 1,520 watts in every car.
