We didn’t formerly road test the recent Mercedes-AMG C 63 coupé, on account of the fact that we’d already tested the saloon and were hoping that an even more extreme Black Series version might come along at some point, and therefore doing so might prove to be AMG overkill.
However, there’s something quite compelling about AMG at the moment, and the roll Mercedes’ performance division is on makes the C 63 S Cabriolet worthy of your, and our, attention.
Besides, we haven’t road tested a current C-Class Cabriolet yet, so this model represents an intersection of what the two separate labels stand for.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet is a comfortable, confident four-seat convertible, but one not noted at most points within its range for being a sports car.
The C 63, meanwhile, is something else: a confident four-seater, certainly, but one that gives over so much to driving pleasure that comfort drops down the list of its priorities and abilities.
Which makes you wonder: how far can you stretch, in any direction, the C-Class and AMG characters, and do they still meld when you try?
