About the MERC from WIKI… The Mercedes-Benz S-Class, (Mercedes AMG S65 Cabriolet) formerly known as Sonderklasse (German for “special class”, abbreviated as “S-Klasse”), is a series of luxury flagship vehicles produced by the German automaker Mercedes-Benz, (Mercedes AMG S65 Cabriolet) division of German company Daimler AG.

The S-Class designation for top-of-the-line Mercedes-Benz models was officially introduced in 1972 with the W116, and has remained in use ever since.

The S-Class (Mercedes AMG S65 Cabriolet) has debuted many of the company’s latest innovations, including drivetrain technologies, interior features, and safety systems (such as the first seatbelt pretensioners).

The S-Class has ranked as the world’s best-selling luxury sedan,[3] and its latest generation, the W222 S-Class, premiered in 2013.

As in previous iterations, the W221 S-Class is sold in standard and long-wheelbase versions; I4, V6, V8, V12, diesel and hybrid powertrains are offered. All models built in Mexico or sold in the United States are only available in long wheelbase.

In automotive terms, Sonderklasse refers to “a specially outfitted car.” Although used colloquially for decades, following its official application in 1972, six generations of officially named S-Klasse sedans have been produced.

Previous two-door coupe models of the S-Class were known as SEC and later S-Coupe. In 1998 the S-Class coupe was spun off in a separate line as the CL-Class, however as of June 2014, it has been re-designated as the S-Class Coupé (Mercedes AMG S65 Cabriolet) for the 2015 model year, doing away with the CL-Class.

In 2016, the S-Class Cabriolet, internally named A217, was introduced with three variants: the S 550 Cabriolet, the Mercedes-AMG S 63 Cabriolet with 4Matic, and the Mercedes AMG S65 Cabriolet. The Mercedes-Maybach S 650 Cabriolet, based on the S 65 Cabriolet, was announced in 2016.

Competing models include the BMW 7 Series, Audi A8, Jaguar XJ, Lexus LS, and the Maserati Quattroporte. 2017 MERCEDES S65 AMG CABRIOLET
