According to Top Gear’s September Issue from egmcartech’s report, the production version of the Ocean Drive concept will most like tackle the RR Drophead. The performance and amenities will be closer to the Drophead than the speculated competitor A7 from Audi.
“The Mercedes-Benz Ocean Drive… will extract 510 horsepower from a 5.5 liter V8 with the range topper having a V12 engine that produces anywhere from 525 to 550 horsepower. A 6.2 liter AMG that produces 604 horsepower is also on the drawing board.” The performance will no doubt be a class leader. With the pricing set lower than the RR Drophead, it will definately fill the gap between the S and the upper-market.
“…in a real-world setting, it (Ocean Drive) has a presence that demands your attention and respect. The only other production car I can think of to have the same guvnor effect is the Phantom.”Lee Brimble of Top Gear
