However, the company has not announced the exact Australian specification as of now. It is interesting to see what makes up the S65 cabriolet which is such an expensive car in Australia.
According to Marshall Town, the AMG model comes with unique badging, larger air intakes and rear diffuser, quad tailpipes and unique wheels. In addition, the car is packed with connectivity such as Apple CarPlay, and Benz’s COMAND Online Navigation system.
Business Insider, meanwhile, notes that the AMG S65 Cabriolet is equipped with a Nappa leather trim and a huge touchscreen centre console. To note, it also has the Airmatic suspension that leans in with the car around corners similar to the motorbike, which is also standard.
The company has also added a camera to the suspension which scans the road surface up to 15 metres in front of the car. It has the ability to adjust the suspension according to the bumps and undulations on the road.
The AMG S65 Cabriolet is a convertible car, powered by the hand-built, turbo V12 engine which contains 463kW of power and 1000Nm of torque. Certainly, Mercedes is not expecting to sell many cars with this price. An estimate could be 60 units sold in the first year.
