The game is on again! The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet is posted on the internet once more, but this time, it is all wrapped up in grey cloth. The Stuttgart grand brand will be taking the wraps down on March 1st, in Geneva.

Only one taillight is out from beneath the cloth that stretches on its elegant lines in the pictures that shows the cabriolets that the brand is taking to the year’s second auto show, the one in Switzerland.

On the 86th edition of the Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz is displaying the Dream Car collection in all its glory.

This comes 5 days after the Cabriolet was sent online in the shape of a sketch. The convertible is set to join an exclusive entourage made up by the smart fortwo cabriolet, the SL, the SLC and the AMG S 65 Cabriolet.

A C 300 version will likely be revealed first, sporting a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine developing 245 HP. But the brand is saving the best for last. The Mercedes-AMG C 43 and C 63 versions will follow shortly with a power boost under the hood: the 3.0-liter V6 roaring out no less than 367 HP and upgraded chassis performance for the mid-level C 43 and the 4.0-liter biturbo V8 boasting roughly 510 HP for the performance-oriented C 63. A C 350 Plug-In version is also expected to show up later on.

The C-Class Cabriolet comes with a soft top, unlike its convertible rival, the BMW 4 Series, but similar to the open-air Audi A5.

The first ever convertible set to bear the C-Class badge will have its world premiere on the 1st of March in Geneva and is going to hit the showrooms next autumn.
