It's the sheer thrill of having a convertible on the open road clocking up triple- digits. The sun, top down, loud sound, this car was made to have fun. I forgot to mention all without the wind in my hair (you can thank the Mercedes well -designed wind deflector for that) With the refined luxury you'd expect from Mercedes, this car is well engineered and ticks all the performance boxes. The howl of the V6 biturbo engine and sports exhaust vibrates in my ears and a quick shift into sports mode, the steering tightens making handling a breeze for curvy roads and corners. The AMG instant response suspension sure impresses as the car glides effortlessly over bumpy terrain, it's a smooth ride. The leather seats are surprisingly cool in the glistening Summer sun as they deflect light and don't heat up too much. An elegant interior boasting Harmon Kardon sound system, sat nav, air scarf for those cooler days and heated seats. For boot space don't have high expectations, it is a two- seater after all and a fabric divider where the hardtop convertible folds in does limit space when the top is off. That being said, there is enough boot space for a large suitcase and a few modest size bags. Overall, it's the perfect addition to your car collection making it the perfect performance car.
