Topless History

Mercedes to build Ocean Drive concept

It’s hard to believe that a 4-door convertible hasn’t seen production in over 40 years. This apprently didn’t sit well with the boys at Mercedes Benz, who have announced that their stunning “Ocean Drive” concept car from last year’s North American Auto Show will be released as a 2011 model.

While its name might conjure up thoughts of rollin slow through Miami, don’t expect the S600-based drop to be any slow-poke. The finished product will most likely share the 600’s 510Hp V-12 and list at over $100k at dealers. Making automotive history usually doesn’t come cheap.
