The Mercedes-AMG E53 Cabriolet Turns Out to Be More Luxurious Than a Maybach

Germany's Hofele Design took care of it.

The one-of-a-kind Mercedes-AMG E53 Cabriolet was to be the main focus of attention at Hofele’s booth at the 2020 Geneva International Motor Show. However, since all the plans have been corrected by the coronavirus pandemic, the event did not take place. The Cabriolet has premiered online.

Visually, the unique Mercedes-AMG is distinguished by the bright royal peacock blue paint and glossy black bumper inserts. It also features a new radiator grille with vertical slats, the Hofele logo in the center and chrome surrounds for the side air intakes. Chrome decorative elements can also be seen on the sides, rear diffusers and bumper. It is worth noting the ‘Turbine’ forged 21-inch alloy wheels.

The interior is finished in two-tone Nappa leather: ‘Magnolia’ and ‘Royal Blue’. The blue leather is visible on the upper and lower dashboards, steering wheel, door panels and seats. According to the Hofele, all the interior elements were redone, including the roof. Sheep wool floor mats were added too.

Technically, the Mercedes-AMG E53 has not changed. The Cabriolet is powered by a standard 3.0-liter Twin-Turbo V6 (435 hp, 520 Nm), supplemented by a 48V starter-alternator that produces additional 22 hp and 250 Nm. A 0-100 km/h time is 4.4 seconds and a top speed is 250 km/h.

Hofele Design did not say how much it costs. In Germany, a standard Mercedes-AMG E53 costs €88,000.
