The chief of Mercedes-Benz USA, Steve Cannon, has confirmed that a convertible version of the next-generation C Class is coming. With the sedan likely to launch sometime in 2014, we suspect the C convertible will be on sale by the end of 2015.

This weekend is the 2012 Formula One Indian Grand Prix, a crucial race that could give an early indication of this year’s champion. The race is once again taking place at the Buddh International Circuit, which Pirelli has given an excellent preview of.

Next week is the 2012 SEMA show, so understandably we have a bevy of new concept and tuner specials to report on.

You'll find all of this information and more in today's car news headlines, here at Motor Authority.
