Oh my God. What have they done to the S-Class?
It's a good question. This Ocean Drive concept car is basically an S600 S-Class that's been decapitated for show goers' delectation. That's right - this is a four-door luxury convertible fit, as its name suggests, for cruising along an ocean boulevard. There's luxurious space for four, Merc's Airscarf heating system gently warming passengers at neck-level to keep them snug on chilly evenings.
Ok, so how different is the Ocean Drive?
Think S-Class with a smattering of high-tech jewellery. The outside is distinguished by LED headlights glowing with two inverted C's and ritzy 36-spoke high-gloss alloys. Unique two-tone paintwork distinguishes the Ocean Drive and the doors are frameless, leaving a seamless profile with the roof down. That grille is a third bigger than a regular S-Class's, too. Inside? The door cappings and roof compartment box are topped with maple and there's a champagne cooler, obviously.
