Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe Concept
Mercedes has officially unveiled the successor to its long-running CL-Class luxury coupe: the S-Class Coupe. An updated take on the 4-door S-Class, the coupe sports an elegant-yet-aggressive look thanks to curving lines, a sloping front end, oversized wheel arches, redesigned 21″ alloy wheels, and new horizontal taillights. Under the hood sits a V8 4,633cc Biturbo engine capable of 455 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque while the interior plays host to aluminum, calfskin and silk throughout. Finally, Magic Body Control monitors the car’s surrounding up to 500 meters in order to make necessary adjustments to the suspension for the smoothest ride possible; Intelligent Drive’s two stereo cameras provide a 3D view of up to 50 meters in front of the car and support both object and movement detection – all of which is displayed on the dash’s two slim 8:3 aspect ratio 12.3″ screens. Likely very close to what the final version will offer, the production edition of the S-Class Coupe will likely be unveiled early next year at Detroit’s North American International Auto Show.
