Mercedes-Benz celebrates 130 years since the inception of the automobile with the S63 AMG Cabriolet “Edition 130”, unveiled this morning in Detroit.
NAIAS 2016 is not all about the all-new 2017 E-Class. Mercedes has other suprises up its sleeve, too, and the first of these is a limited run S-Class Cabriolet. A very limited edition, in fact, since only 130 cars will be made available for customers across the world, as proved by a badge set right at the base of the center console plus an engraving on the steering wheel bezel.
Carl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler invented the automobile in 1886, putting the bases of the modern car, as we’ve come to know it today.
“The first automobiles from Carl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler were open vehicles. Mercedes-AMG honours this achievement of the founding fathers with this highly exclusive cabriolet, and demonstrates the developments the automobile has undergone in the last 130 years”, Tobias Moers, Mercedes-AMG boss, explains.
Among the distinguishing details endowing the Edition 130 badged Mercedes-AMG S 63 Cabrio with its expected exclusivity levels we find high-gloss “alubeam silver” special paint, Bordeaux red fabric top and matte black 20-inch 10-spoke wheels with high-sheen rim flanges.
Changes seem just as subtle at the interior with the Mercedes-AMG S 63 Cabriolet Edition 130 featuring unique trim elements finished in AMG carbon or piano black plus the exclusive Designo nappa leather upholstery which can be specified in Bengal red/black or, optionally, crystal grey/black color combos.
