Newport Convertible Engineering Vehicle – NCE will Design & Engineer your 4 door Mercedes Benz S to a 4 door
Mercedes S Convertible!
Luxurious 4 door Mercedes S Convertible by NCE Custom Convertible.
Remember the elegant Mercedes-Benz 220 convertible from the 1950s? How about the gorgeous early ’60s 220 SE cabriolet?
Perhaps a 280 SE convertible is more your style. Well, NCE is back in the full-size four-place convertible business with the
Mercedes S-Class Cabriolet, making its debut at the Frankfurt motor show later this month.
The company says this is its first open-top four-seat flagship since 1971.
The car looks like, well, an S-Class convertible.
The black radiator grille dominates the front end, as do the two large air intakes in the bumper.
The LED headlamps can be had with optional Swarovski crystal turn signals and daytime running lamps.
From the side, the car looks like the S-Class Coupe with the top closed, and the multilayer top
(it can be lowered in less than 20 seconds at up to 37 mph) is available in black, dark blue, beige and dark red.
You can also raise and lower the top with the key. Mercedes says that with the top up, the convertible gets close to the
coupe’s interior quietness thanks to things like the enhanced upholstery matting,
multilayer construction and double-glazed glass.
Benz’s new convertible has all the S-Class sedan’s techno wizardry — such as AIRMATIC air suspension, PRE-SAFE Brake with pedestrian detection, distronic cruise control, active lane assist and … you get the idea. The convertible adds what the company calls a “comprehensive warmth and wind protection concept including intelligent climate control.” That means the car boasts air deflectors to keep air out of the cockpit, as well as the AIRSCARF neck-level heating system and heated armrests, in addition to front and rear seat heaters. Sounds pretty draft-free to us; driving will tell the tale.
