AMG E-Class Cabriolet
48 volts of lightning. 429 hp of thunder.
AMG E 53 CABRIOLET
With 429 horsepower plus an innovative electric boost, the AMG E 53 Cabriolet turns every breeze into a rush. A deep infusion of AMG performance know-how teams with groundbreaking E-Class innovation to create a new generation of open-air driving.
A race that knows no finish line.
In an old mill in 1967, two automotive engineers with a passion for motorsports began turning Mercedes-Benz sedans into winning racecars. Today, as the performance division of Mercedes-Benz, AMG continues to create victory on the track and desire on the streets of the world. Every Mercedes-AMG vehicle is the product of craftsmen, designers and engineers who live to test limits, and for a singular goal: Driving Performance.
Born to perform, developed to outperform
A Mercedes-AMG engine only starts with the state of the art. From there, everything from fuel pressure to exhaust routing is developed to quicken, heighten and intensify its response, and yours. A new generation of performance is electrified, much like the Formula 1® championship-winning AMG racecars.
Nine speedshifted gears
The AMG SPEEDSHIFT® TCT 9-speed combines a wide range of gear ratios with quickened gear changes, to help keep every rev within easy reach. A variety of modes offer such features as direct multi-gear downshifts and paddle-shifted manual control.
Three kinds of boost
A twin-scroll turbo plus an electric auxiliary compressor pump up the high-tech inline-6 to 429 peak hp and 0-60 in just 4.4 seconds. An electric EQ Boost Integrated Starter-Generator can add up to 21 of its own horsepower. **
All the wheels, but not all the time
Variable-torque AMG Performance 4MATIC+ sends the engine's torque to the wheels that can use it best, from all four in play to 100% rear-wheel drive. The result can be felt in quicker launches, agile handling, and tenacious grip in demanding conditions. 
Five modes, for your many moods
AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you vary the shifting, handling and more with the touch of a console button. Comfort, Sport and Sport+ modes are joined by a program specifically for slippery surfaces. There's also an Individual mode you customize to your own liking. The new AMG DRIVE UNIT option adds controls to the steering wheel.
The sound of power, and the power to rein it in
The standard AMG Sport Exhaust turns power into a symphony. Multimode internal flaps in the AMG Performance Exhaust option let you be the conductor. And with 4-piston front calipers grasping perforated 14.6-inch discs, AMG Performance brakes decelerate decidedly.
Turns the breeze into Gs
Based on AIR BODY CONTROL, the AMG Sport Suspension turns pressurized air into poised agility. It lowers at speed. It responds in milliseconds to changing roads, loads, and the modes of AMG DYNAMIC SELECT. And while it's tenacious in turns or on the track, it's calm and composed on your commute.
A showcase of style, a treasure trove of technology
A choice of eight upholsteries and nine cabin trims let you assert your style. Further standard appointments let you amend your style anytime: 64 colors of LED ambient lighting, season-extending AIRSCARF® neck-level heating, and reconfigurable digital gauges.
Aggressive aerodynamics, to tame the wind
Between the and twin-power-dome hood and the deep front air dam lies the signature twin-blade AMG grille. Sizable front intakes, sculpted side sills and a fluted rear diffuser add aerodynamic function with athletic flair.
Behind the wheel, ahead of the curve
The standard 12.3-inch digital instrument panel features exclusive AMG performance readouts. Sport seats with integrated head restraints help keep you in control. So does a flat-bottom AMG Performance steering wheel, available in four distinctive finishes, plus a new AMG DRIVE UNIT option that adds performance mode controls.
Distinctive style, distinguishing details
Standard 19-inch AMG® wheels, or any of six 20-inch options, take a confident stance on handling. Two styling packages further sharpen the AMG-honed looks: the gloss back accents of the Night Package, or elements crafted from genuine carbon fiber.
