Mercedes-Benz has just unveiled their new standard and AMG C-Class Cabriolet. The C43 AMG edition boasts a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that backs 362 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque. This equates to 0 to 60 in 4.7 seconds, before topping out at 155 miles per hour.
The C300 Cabriolet comes equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that cranks out 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. In 6.3 seconds, it will take you from 0 to 60.
Both the standard and AMG editions will be offered with a new nine-speed automatic transmission, albeit the sedan model is limited to seven forward gears. Each then welcomes a canvas roof that can be lowered in 20 seconds at speeds of up to 31 miles per hour.
The C300 Cabriolet is to become available in both rear-wheel-drive and 4Matic options by late summer, while the AMG is scheduled to launch in the fall.
