The 2020 Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG S Cabriolet is a supercar for all seasons, one that can be driven top up or top down, regardless of the weather.  It brings this range of performance to the under $100,000 class with excellent comfort and head turning design.

Need one say more?

Indeed, let there be no doubt: the 2020 Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG S Cabriolet is hot, so hot we had to enlist the help of the Point Lookout Fire Company for part of our photo shoot.

Despite having been introduced at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in 2014 for the 2015 model year, the Mercedes C-Class still looks fresh, especially following a mid-life facelift in 2019, with some subtle changes that included new LED headlights and taillights and a new 12.3” digital instrument cluster and a new 10.25” central information display.

AMG, for the uninitiated, is the high-performance division of Mercedes-Benz, known for its performance enhancements.  AMG was founded as an independent concern in 1967 as AMG Motorenbau und Entwicklungsgesellschaft mbH in Burgstall an der Murr in Baden-Württemburg.

It is important to note that AMG has quadrupled its global sales over the past ten years, selling 132,000 units in 2019, and it’s cars such as the C 63 AMG S Cabrio that are behind the increase.

A Designo Cardinal Red Metallic C 63 AMG S cabrio(Designo is a Mercedes-Benz program that allows customers to select from a range of exclusive paint finishes and interior materials when specifying a vehicle) arrived on a sun-drenched August day, the perfect time to plan a few drives with a roadster.  Our cabriolet was “[h]andcrafted by Julian Reinhold” of Mercedes-AMG Germany and we would like to go on record and say “danke schön” for the extraordinary driving experience he and his colleagues at the plant created for us.
