After a four-and-a-half-decade hiatus, Mercedes-Benz will once again offer a droptop, four-seat flagship car. We’re getting our first good look at the S-Class Cabriolet right here at the Frankfurt Motor Show and here’s what you should know about it.

Starting up top – literally – this big-boned beauty features a three-layer fabric roof to keep that old harpy mother nature at bay. It can be operated at speeds up to 37 miles an hour, taking just 20 seconds to fold away or redeploy.

Putting the roof down reveals what the company describes as a 'yacht-like atmosphere,' which makes sense because the S-Class sedan on which this cabriolet is based has arguably the nicest interior in its segment. Top-shelf materials abound, as does tasteful design and tons of technology.

Keeping occupants comfy-cozy is a groundbreaking climate-control system. It’s fully computer networked and sports 12 sensors as well as 18 separate actuators. The car’s AIRCAP wind deflectors reduce turbulence and noise while the AIRSCARF system provides neck-level heating for maximum comfort. Beyond all of this, there are heated seats and optional heated armrests. ****, you could probably drive one of these cars through a blizzard with the top down and still sweat your ass off.

I like that they went with a soft top since the look a soft top takes on when used how they used it helps to complement the flagship coupe that it is.

However I know there will be folks that wanted a hard top.

Title misled me a bit.
"S-Class Cabriolet a Flagship Land Yacht" made me think that it was a decked out van for travelers like the Sprinter or Metris but better.
The seats are very yacht like is nothing else and everything seems to have been wrapped with leather.

S-class coupes have been the standard flagship of all kinds of people who want to demonstrate how much money they have- they can afford to spend 6-figures on a car that is entirely impractical.
