2015 Mercedes-Benz S-class Coupe: Promoting Luxury and Style

The future model is considered one of the most beautiful Mercedes in a while.

The S-class will replace the CL-class and aims to restore supremacy in the luxury market among big-spender buyers who now seem to prefer Bentley. The two-door S-class was showcased at last fall’s Frankfurt auto show and the production model is expected at this year’s Geneva auto show. The S-class coupe could be chief designer Gorden Wagener’s masterpiece.

You couldn’t possible find something wrong with the new Benz, from the long hood to the most eloquently designed “dropping” character lines in this model’s line-up and from the low-slung greenhouse to wide taillights.

It has a wheelbase of 116 inches and the overall length stretches to 198 inches, eight inches shorter than the inspiration model, the S-class sedan. The model will be powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.7-liter V-8 that produces 449 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. In contrast to the silence produced in the four-door S-class, the future Benz provides a sporty exhaust sound.

A new impressive feature is the “curve tilting function”, allowing the car to lean into corners like a downhill skier or a motorcyclist at angles of up to 2.5 degrees. The technology is not new, but Mercedes was the one that refined it by using input from the road-scanning camera and used it for the production models.

Another gadget available for the S-class coupe is the Magic Sky Control roof, than can turn almost perfectly transparent at the touch of a button. Two separate audio systems are available—one of them providing three-dimensional sound and also, massaging seats that simulate a hot-stone rubdown. Let’s not forget the avoidance wizardry, autonomous breaking, night vision, adaptive cruise control or cross-traffic alert.

The new S-class coupe is ready to pick up right where its predecessors left off and continue the tradition.
