In conjunction with last weekend's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, the S-Class Cabriolet was teased in a photo released by the automaker. It is based on the S-Class Coupe.
Few details were released.
"The new S-Class Cabriolet represents the sixth model of the S-Class family and is the first luxury four-seater cabriolet since 1971," Mercedes-Benz said in a statement.
The teaser photo shows that the cabriolet version of the S-Class appears to keep the same proportions as the hardtop version.
It will be offered as a 4Matic S550 and AMG S63, along with a rear-wheel-drive S65, Edmunds has confirmed.
Pricing and technical specifications have not been announced.
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe starts at $121,550, including a $925 destination charge.
The drop-top version is expected to start above that price.
Edmunds says: Car shoppers in the ultra-luxury convertible segment get their first official look at the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet and can make plans for next year accordingly.
