But, since launch, some have been wondering if this model will spawn an open-top variant. Well, wonder no more. Seen here heavily disguised is an S-Class Cabriolet. The front and rear treatments seem very similar to those of the fixed roof model, with that bluff nose and slim taillamps.
Under all that eye-dazzling camouflage, you can see a slightly different roofline hinting at a folding roof. It is unclear whether this is a fabric or folding metal mechanism, but if we were to guess then we'd say it was cloth owing to the sheer size of the roof.
Some will question where this car fits into the Mercedes-Benz cabrio pecking order, as there is already an SL model that utilises the same drivetrains as the S-Class. However, the S-Class Cabriolet will be a four-seater, where the SL has space for only two well-heeled occupants.
