The Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet will come in 2015. And it’s likely to wear a cloth roof rather than metal. This will be Benz’s biggest cabriolet yet, and will potentially rival the Bentley Continental GT Convertible.

This was rendered with reference to spyshots.

So I turned the S-Class Coupe into a 2-seater sports car; removing rear seats, shorten the rear overhang, lowered DLO and roof, lengthen the hood and smaller side windows. I like this rendering’s shape and profile over the S-Class Coupe’s. However this is definitely not something Mercedes-Benz has in mind, especially since the SLC (SLS […]

Images may not be re-posted without permission. Aside from the coupe, Mercedes is also preparing the cabriolet C-Class to go head to head with Audi A5 and BMW 4-Series, and most likely the Cadillac ATS Convertible too.

Images may not be re-posted without permission. When I was rendering the C-Class Coupe, I did more than just lengthening the front doors after removing the rear’s. I had also lowered the belt line and roof, and gave the rear windscreen a steeper slope.

So if there’s a C-Class hatchback, would you choose this over the A-Class? By estimation, this C-Class hatchback should be around 4,500mm in length. The A-Class is 4,292mm long. Is 4,500mm too long or too big for a compact hatchback?

According to Autocar, Mercedes-Benz will launch a Sportcoupé variant of its new C-class as part of an expanded model range. But unlike the earlier three-door Sportcoupé based on the third-generation C-class, the new one will receive a five-door lift back layout similar to the Audi A5 Sportback and BMW 3-series GT.

More shooting brake renderings. I’d say these are some of my favourite renderings this year.

My new dream car. Even if Mercedes-Benz decides to make one, I seriously doubt I can ever afford one.

Should there be an estate variant of the S-Class? Well with the Vito successor V-Class replacing the (discontinued) R-Class as Merc’s luxury full-size MPV, why not? The CLS Shooting Brake roofline fits rather well with the S-Class don’t you think?
