Mercedes-AMG C43 Cabriolet 4Matic (2017) Video Review

Mercedes-AMG recently wedged its twin-turbocharged 3.0 V6 into the C-Class Cabriolet and bolted on the firm's 4Matic all-wheel-drive system to create the C43 Cabriolet 4Matic. The Benz costs more than R1 million and produces a (very) pleasurable noise. We were very eager to review it...

And so we took the Benz for a scenic drive along Cape Town's coastline to experience wind-in-our-hair motoring. On the day, however, Cape Town's iffy weather had other ideas. A downpour gave us a chance to appreciate the newcomer's roof-up driving experience. Is it a more realistic "performance cabriolet" proposition than the V8-engined C63 derivative?
