    Its called...Aircap, a wind deflector that extends nearly 2.5 inches forward from the top of the windshield header. When used in combination with a wind blocker behind the rear seats, Mercedes says the system dramatically reduces wind turbulence in the cabin. The Aircap can be activated at speeds up to 100 mph and will stay in place up to the 155 mph electronically limited top speed.

    I call it fugly

    How appropriate that they called it Aircrap.

    Personally part of the fun of a convertible is the wind in your hair. I guess it is a good thing in one sense though since I see many convertibles with the top up on beautiful days, at leas this may encourage them to lower it.

    I would say that at least for the occupants of this vehicle wind in their hair should not be much of an issue.
