The Concept IAA shows how far advanced Mercedes already in the digitalization of automotive development and production.
“The Concept IAA shows that the real and virtual world are merging more and morte at Mercedes-Benz. Never before have we developed a vehicle concept as quickly as our Concept IAA”, declared Dieter Zetsche, Daimler CEO.
The Concept IAA embodies two cars in one – a four door coupe with a generous interior like in a E-Class or CLS and an aerodynamic world record breaker with a Cx of only 0.19.

Mercedes S-Class was the best selling luxury saloon in 2014 with more than 100,000 units.
“The new S-Class Cabrio may not become our bestselling car but I am certain it will be one of the most coveted”, Dieter Zetsche said.
Mercedes-AMG S 63 Cabrio
This superlative dream car is powered by the AMG 5.5 litre V8 biturbo engine with 585 HP and maximum torque of 900 Nm delivered to the road by the standard fit AMG 4Matic performance all-wheel drive.

It is the most inexpensive cabriolet in the world and at the same time the most exclusive way to drive a smart”, Annette Winkler, Head of smart declared.
