Mercedes Benz S500 Cabrio Rent in Dubai
Mercedes S500 Cabrio rent in Dubai, coupe basically, a two-door, four-seat variant of the S-Class, replacing the now-defunct CL. Initially available as an S63 AMG with a 5.5-litre biturbo V8 and 582bhp, there’s also an S65 with a twin-turbo 6.0-litre V12 and 621bhp, and a 4.6-litre S 500 equipped with another biturbo V8 with 450bhp. Suffice to say, these isn’t a weak S-Class Coupe.
Mercedes Benz S500 Cabrio Rent in Dubai class coupe AMG refers to the range as the ‘supreme pinnacle’ of Benzness, and the S Coupe certainly has enough tech to qualify the tagline. From 47 Swarovski crystals in the headlights to every kind of ‘Assist’ function M-B could think of, there’s enough computing power in this thing to operate a small capital city.
Trying to come up with criticisms for any member of Mercedes-AMG’s S-class lineup can feel a bit like picking nits with a Monet painting. Similarly, finding fault with the latest S-class coupe and cabriolet models takes some effort, an impression reinforced after we spent time in the updated-for-2018 versions of these luxurious full-size models. Civility meets brutality in the Mercedes-AMG S63 coupe we tested. It is both Bruce Banner and the Incredible Hulk. Serene and savage, restrained and raucous, technologically adept and primitive in its ferocity, the S63 coupe is uncompromising. It combines the decadence of a grand-touring car with the rapscallion heart of a sports car.
Updated for 2018, the S63 features a new twin-turbo V-8 engine handbuilt in Affalterbach, Germany. It’s accompanied by a new nine-speed automatic transmission, as well as improved driver-assistance systems, and slightly massaged headlights, taillights, and bumpers. The S63 and the S65 gain a new grille with vertical strakes, referred to by Mercedes as the Panamericana grille, as the look is inspired by the brand’s midcentury 300SL race car that won the 1952 Carrera Panamericana.
At over five metres long and two wide, this isn’t a small car. But programmable air-suspension helps keep everything as taut as the slick looks suggest, and if you tick the right boxes, Mercedes Benz S500 Coupe Rent in Dubai Magic Body Control with Curve Tilting Function will actually lean the S Coupe into corners like a motorbike. It’s not for speed – there’s a ‘sport’ function for that into which the system defaults – but for comfort. And it really works – keeping the car straight and level even during high-speed direction changes.
Trouble is, even though there’s mighty performance on offer from pretty much any variant, the S is more adept at rapid distance-demolishing rather than joyous switchbacks – you can feel the electronics helping deliver astonishing grip and keeping it all together, which is both comforting and slightly annoying for a keen driver. There’s even Stop and Go Pilot, which takes care of steering, throttle and brakes in heavy traffic. This is an autonomous car in all but name and insurance liability.
The all-wheel-drive S63’s puissant powertrain is further improved by the addition of a new nine-speed automatic transmission. Like the prior seven-speed unit, the nine-speed gearbox does without a torque converter. Instead, a multiplate clutch serves as the coupling between the engine and the transmission. Whereas the previous transmission was prone to imprecise clutch engagement and occasional clunky, lurching low-speed behavior, the new nine-speed transmission engages with near torque-converter fluidity time and time again. It made no difference if we were sitting in stop-and-go traffic or using the launch-control system to rocket to 60 mph in 3.0 seconds—a full second ahead of the standard S560 coupe (which uses a version of the S63’s 4.0-liter) and 0.7 second quicker than the S63 coupe with the previous 5.5-liter V-8. This 4784-pound coupe also beats the 1103-pound-lighter rear-drive Mercedes-AMG GT R to the mile-a-minute mark by 0.2 second.

Mercedes Benz S500 Cabrio Rent in Dubai latest COMAND infotainment system is standard fare. The setup includes a pair of 12.3-inch screens, both of which rest under a single piece of glass. One screen is positioned in the driver’s line of sight and combines a digital gauge cluster with infotainment functions; the other sits in the middle of the dashboard and is strictly limited to infotainment control. Our test car had the $6400 Burmester surround-sound audio system, which is 100 percent worth it, both for the beautifully crafted speaker grilles that glint from every corner of the interior and the audio power that belts from each one.
