Mercedes-AMG E-Class Cabriolet
The AMG E 53 Cabriolet turns every breeze into a rush. AMG performance know-how teams a turbo and electric compressor for 429 hp, adds in an electric boost, and wraps it all in new style and E-Class innovation.
A race that knows no finish line.
In an old mill in 1967, two engineers with a passion for motorsports began turning Mercedes-Benz sedans into winning racecars. Today, 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, engineers and racers who live for a singular goal: Driving Performance.
Born to perform, developed to outperform
A Mercedes-AMG engine starts with the state of the art. Everything from fuel pressure to exhaust routing is developed to quicken, heighten and intensify its response, and yours. From patented processes to cut friction to a new generation of electrified performance, AMG technology is fueled by its racing success.
Three kinds of boost
A twin-scroll turbo and electric auxiliary compressor pump up the high-tech inline-6 to 429 hp, 384 lb-ft, and 0-60 in just 4.4 seconds. Electric EQ Boost can add 21 hp of its own. The AMG SPEEDSHIFT® TCT 9-speed offers multiple modes and manual paddle shifts. Disclaimer
Modes for your driving mood
AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you dial in your car's performance via controls on the console or the standard steering-wheel AMG DRIVE UNIT. Five drive programs, from Slippery to Sport+ to custom Individual, fine-tune the throttle, shifting, chassis and more.
The sound of pure power
The AMG Sport Exhaust turns the engine's sound into a symphony. Multimode internal flaps in the available AMG Performance Exhaust let you unleash the fury, or mellow down the sound.
Cross-trained by a team of champions
An AMG E-Class benefits from 50-plus years of racing victory through the direct involvement of the same teams in its development. From chassis setups to the fine-tuning of its controls, AMG performance is defined by orchestrated, integrated teamwork.
Reins for the horses
The power of the E 53 extends to its AMG Performance brakes. Substantial 4-piston calipers are paired with perforated and ventilated 14.6-inch front discs. Disclaimer
Gs from the breeze
Based on AIR BODY CONTROL, the AMG Sport Suspension turns pressurized air into agile poise. It can adapt in milliseconds to changing roads, loads, and the modes of AMG DYNAMIC SELECT. It's self-lowering, self-leveling, and equal parts tenacity and composure.
Action from traction
Fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ can apportion torque to the wheels that can best turn grip into go. From confident cornering to assertive acceleration, 4MATIC+ can vary from 50/50 up to 100% RWD. Disclaimer
Showcase of visionary tech
Top up, a widescreen digital cockpit teams stunning displays with intuitive touch and voice controls. Power down the top and its breathtaking style goes on display to an admiring world.
Panorama of performance
Dual 12.3-inch displays include reconfigurable instruments with exclusive AMG performance readouts and a central touchscreen. Available AMG Track Pace lets you chart your skills on the central touchscreen.
Higher sense of touch
Offered in three finishes, the AMG Performance steering wheel features a new twin-spoke design with capacitive touch controls. The standard AMG DRIVE UNIT puts performance controls right on the wheel.
Airflow of authority
Vertical grille bars evoke a deep racing legacy. Aggressive lower bodywork and sleek LED lighting slice the wind and darkness. Top up or down, extensive aerodynamic refinement enhances roadholding and riding comfort.
Romance in the atmosphere
A spectrum of leathers, nine trim options and four soft top colors let you express your style. Thoughtful luxuries like 64-color LED ambient lighting let you suit your mood, or set a new one, anytime.
Precision from the ground up
Standard 19-inch AMG® wheels, or any of four 20-inch options, take a confident stance on handling. Wider rear wheels enhance grip at launch, with front wheels sized for crisp steering feedback. Disclaimer
Details of distinction
AMG Carbon Fiber and Night Packages further embolden the E 53 Cabriolet. A new dark-tinted grille option deepens the blackout effect of the Night Package.
