S-Class convertible: Mercedes Ocean Drive conceptby Nick Aziz
Mercedes today revealed its Ocean Drive concept, which will be on display at the North American Auto Show in Detroit early next month. The much-rumored four-door convertible is described as a one-off creation, but recent media reports indicate it could see production in a year.
Apart from the four doors, the unique concept features a very large and upright radiator grille, LED headlamps and taillights, and two-tone paintwork. The long side-window opening is not interrupted by a B-pillar or window frames.
The design study is based on the twelve-cylinder Mercedes-Benz S 600, and features an innovative soft-top mechanism with smooth operation and fast closing times, radar-based Distronic Plus, and the Airscarf neck-level heating system on all four seats. Gallery after the jump...
