I spend the majority of my time driving my truck up and down the UKs roads delivering for a well known High Street discount retailer and I always keep an eye out for unusual and exotic cars. Today travelling along the A127 out of Southend I spotted an SL63 AMG Twin Turbo. Ive never even seen one of these before never mind driven one and I have to confess some spit started to drivel involuntary from the corner of my mouth upon sighting this beast. I must say it was being driven very sedately, in fact I overtook it in my Mercedes Axor hoping it would overtake me back in a blaze of fury but the driver seemed content to just potter along at 45mph. I think if I owned one of these I would be like a cross between Dick Dastardley and Captain Kirk constantly going through the sound barrier to avoid cling ons. Maybe thats why Ive never seen one before they probably have a cloaking device as well.

I googled pictures of this, and whilst looking at a beautiful car I noticed the C class is getting a cabriolet.

Do you have a link?

I wonder if this is in readiness for the S-Class Cabriolet?

That article is spot on, from first looks I thought that that was an E coupe.

Well that's the rub, see. The Ecab is really a C-Cab because it is on a C platform not an E platform. MB haven't done a full sized convertible since 71, except possibly the 124 Cabriolets, but they were more 7/8th size if you know what I mean.

I am hearing on the vine and throughout the universe (only kidding) that there is an S-Class Cabriolet on the way, a BIG 2 door? Convertible. Will it be able to carry a full sized suitcase and three midsized ones at the same time whether the roof is up or down like the A124 will remain to be seen, but please Dr. Z. if someone is reading this MAKE IT BIG ENOUGH FOR A 6'8" person so you can see out of the windscreen. You will sell thousands on that score alone, trust me!!!

Anyway this C-Cabriolet looks like a cracking little car to take on the 3 series, and by the looks of it it should do well, 4WD ay... :):)

They did the Ocean Drive concept which was a four door convertible, but now it looks like they are doing a version of the next CL...
