Lightbulb Topless Transformation: Mercedes-Benz CL loses its head

Filed under: Aftermarket, Convertibles, Sports/GTs, Mercedes-Benz



Mercedes-Benz CL-Class AMG Convertible conversion - Click above for image gallery


With every passing year, there seems to be more convertibles on the market. But if you live in a sunny clime like California's, enough sunshine is never enough. That's where convertible chop-shops like Newport Convertible Engineering step in. The folks at NCE will take just about any automobile and turn it into a custom cabrio to a buyer's specifications. The company's portfolio includes recent conversions of a Dodge Challenger, Toyota Prius, Cadillac CTS, Hummer H2, Toyota FJ Cruiser, and this Mercedes-Benz CL AMG. Unfortunately, from the photos seen here, the soft top doesn't seem to collapse quite flush with the rear deck, leaving something to be desired in terms of aesthetics - to say nothing of rearward visibility. Here's hoping there's a snug-fitting cover lurking in whatever trunkspace remains.

That folded up sunroof makes it look like a VW bug

If I wanted a convertible CL, I would buy an SL.
