Mercedes-Benz has taken the wraps off the S-Class Coupe which effectively replaces the CL-Class in the company’s lineup and will get its first public outing next month at the Geneva Motor Show. The vehicle is 5027mm long, 1899mm wide and 1411mm tall, with a 2945mm wheelbase and riding on alloy wheels in sizes varying from 18 to 20 inches. Looking much more elegant and sleeker than the model it replaces, the S-Class Coupe is equipped with MAGIC BODY CONTROL featuring an industry-first curve tilting function which reduces the later accelerations felt by the people sitting inside the luxurious cabin.
Speaking of the interior, the cabin has been taken over from the sedan but there’s a new steering wheel called “Super Sport”, rear individual seats and the analog clock has been removed. For more money clients can order a head-up display which features an LED full-color screen projecting all the relevant info the driver needs.
For the moment Mercedes-Benz is only promoting the S 500 Coupe variant which will be motivated by a 4.7-liter V8 engine delivering 455 HP (335 kW) and a peak torque of 516 lb-ft (700 Nm). For more money clients will be able to opt for headlights featuring no less than 47 Swarovski headlights, but they will have to wait until the second half of the year when the model will reach showrooms.
