After a four-and-a-half-decade hiatus, Mercedes-Benz will once again offer a droptop, four-seat flagship car. We’re getting our first good look at the S-Class Cabriolet right here at the Frankfurt Motor Show and here’s what you should know about it.

Starting up top – literally – this big-boned beauty features a three-layer fabric roof to keep that old harpy mother nature at bay. It can be operated at speeds up to 37 miles an hour, taking just 20 seconds to fold away or redeploy.

Putting the roof down reveals what the company describes as a 'yacht-like atmosphere,' which makes sense because the S-Class sedan on which this cabriolet is based has arguably the nicest interior in its segment. Top-shelf materials abound, as does tasteful design and tons of technology.

Keeping occupants comfy-cozy is a groundbreaking climate-control system. It’s fully computer networked and sports 12 sensors as well as 18 separate actuators. The car’s AIRCAP wind deflectors reduce turbulence and noise while the AIRSCARF system provides neck-level heating for maximum comfort. Beyond all of this, there are heated seats and optional heated armrests. ****, you could probably drive one of these cars through a blizzard with the top down and still sweat your ass off.

No wonder they call it a yacht, it's basically driving a car with an interior of a luxury Yacht. All that leather covering a majority of the interior and heated everything. I actually want to try driving the Cabriolet with the top down during winter and see how well the heating system works.

Well depending on how cold, you can have the heating system on blast and it still might not help, not the greatest idea.
