Mercedes has revealed its C 63 Cabriolet, which gives drivers an open-air experience powered by a V8 engine.

Featuring a twin-turbo engine producing 476hp, the C 63 Cabriolet has enough power to keep even the most thrill-seeking driver happy. As well as performance, the C 63 Cabriolet comes with flared wheel arches and a wider track to give it a more purposeful look.

A sophisticated AMG RIDE CONTROL system gives the C 63 the very best dynamics no matter what the surface, and adaptive damping allows the driver to choose between different modes to fit with the conditions.

A rear-axle limited-slip differential also provides manageable and confidence-inspiring handling.

Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG, said: “The C-Class is a decisive factor in our company’s success. The new combination of intensive open-air ambience and powerful V8 engine is unique in the segment and perfectly supplements our large C-Class range.”

A unique exhaust system features flap technology which can vary the car’s sound, depending on transmission mode selected and the engine’s speed. Coupled to this is a seven-speed sports transmission which can be left in full automatic mode or operated via steering wheel-mounted shift paddles.

The fabric roof can be operated while travelling at up to 50mph, and an optional AIRSCARF heating system means that driving will be comfortable even when temperatures get lower. The C 63 Cabriolet is also practical, thanks to a 355-litre boot, which drops to 260 litres when the roof is opened.
