No, not when they instead, could accelerate forward. Therefore, right now, C is for Cabriolet, plus with the Mercedes AMG C63 S, AMG C63, and AMG C43 variants, Mercedes Benz intense racing heritage will ensure that it is speeding ahead toward even more victories. The new C-Class Cabriolet for 2017 comes along with a fresh, responsive 241 horsepower turbo-charged engine, as well as is invigorated with a 9G-TRONIC 9-sp. automatic transmission, plus sporty paddle shifters. The Cabriolet AMG C63 is powered by a pulse racing hand-crafted AMG-V8 bi-turbo engine—the sole eight-cylinder provided in the category—generating 469 horsepower (C63) or 503 horsepower (C63 S), whereas the Cabriolet AMG C43 provides an AMG enhanced 362 horsepower V-6 bi-turbo engine.
