For the Mercedes S-Class Convertible, Carlsson says goodbye to classic tuning ideals. In the case of the Diospyros, the focus is on exclusivity and luxury.

Carlsson is not able to offer a performance boost, the engines of the Mercedes S-Class Convertible do not lack the power even without tuning. The “entry-level model” S 500 offers more than 450 hp and achieves it in 4.6 seconds on country road speed, Who needs more?

Carlsson judges the situation differently in the interior, because here, according to the conviction of the refiner, there is room for some exclusive improvements. West African black, which is called “Diospyros Crassiflora” in science, is not just the name for the luxury tuning, but also replaces the standard wood on the board of Mercedes S-Class Convertible.

The precious wood decorates, among other things, the folding-top box, which is even more reminiscent of luxurious wooden boats from earlier times. High-quality nappa leather with bright contrast stitching round the noble interior, but the exclusivity has its price: depending on the engine and the desired equipment, the prices for the Carlsson Diospyros range between 255,000 and 400,000 euros.
