Also with a V8 engine, but an entirely different breed of a motor, you can get the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Convertible. For those of you unfamiliar with Mercedes-Benz naming schemes, it is the more powerful version of the Mercedes-AMG C63, which is the performance version of the C-Class. Evidently, with the “Convertible” in its name, this is a drop-top Mercedes-Benz, and the AMG division has refined the model in question.
Its 510 HP V8 engine ensures a 0-62 mph acceleration time of just 4,1 seconds, which puts it in supercar territory. The seven-speed AMG Speedshift transmission sends power to the rear wheels. A manual transmission is not offered in the range, and all-wheel-drive is also not available.
When weight is concerned, the C63 S Cabriolet is heavier than the Maserati, as its specification sheet announces 1,925 kilograms (4,243 lbs). As you will find below, it is not the heaviest model in this niche segment.
After yesterday’s story on the lightest SUVs available in Europe, we wanted to see if we can find the five heaviest sports cars. Within a dozen minutes of searching through spec sheets, we found a few “winners.” It comes as a no-brainer that these cars were also convertibles, which are always heavier than their coupe counterparts.
In some cases, these convertible sports cars are heavier than the lightest SUVs found on the European market, which may come as a surprise to some. However, as driving any of the models below will reveal to you, getting a large convertible with sporty ambitions does not mean that you have a slow car.
