Mercedes-Benz unveiled the Ocean Drive concept at the 2007 North American Auto Show in Detroit.

The Ocean Drive study is a one-off creation by Mercedes-Benz which revives the tradition of large luxury convertibles. Not having to work to a design brief or production specifications left the designers free to get on with the job of developing this comfortable and elegant convertible.

Apart from the four doors, the outward distinguishing marks of the Mercedes Ocean Drive concept car include a very large and upright radiator grille, LED headlamps and taillights, two-tone paintwork and a striking interplay between taut lines and large, restful surfaces.

The long side-window of the Ocean Drive is not interrupted by a B-pillar or window frames, an ensures seamless continuity between the exterior and the interior, even when the top is up. Extensive use of high-value materials –such as finest-quality leather, 3D-effect materials and large bird's eye maple trim panels (in the interior and even on the soft-top compartment cover) – and many other thoughtfully designed interior details, highlight the luxurious, unique character of the Mercedes-Benz Ocean Drive convertible.

The Ocean Drive design study is based on the twelve-cylinder Mercedes-Benz S 600, on account of this model's long wheelbase. The Ocean Drive Concepts technical highlights include:

- The soft-top mechanism resulting in smooth operation and fast closing times

- The AIRSCARF neck-level heating system, which is featured on all four seats, allowing occupants to enjoy top-down motoring even in the colder months of the year.
