“The new S-Class Coupé stands at the very pinnacle of our product portfolio and is a further milestone in our luxury-class offensive with a total of six models in future instead of three,” says Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars. “This car drives as good as it looks – and that’s no mean feat, because we’re talking here about the most beautiful S-Class of all time.”

The active curve tilting function MAGIC BODY CONTROL marks a world premiere. “It allows the S-Class Coupé to lean into a curve in a similar manner to a motorcycle rider, reducing the lateral acceleration acting on the occupants,” says Prof. Thomas Weber, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG responsible for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development. “On country roads in particular, this means more driving fun and comfort for our customers.” Further technical innovations in the elegant two-door include the head-up display and the newly developed touchpad.

The coupé is available initially with a 4,663 cm3 V8 biturbo engine. In the S 500 Coupé, the efficient power unit generates 335 kW (455 hp) and a maximum torque of 700 Nm. Like the S-Class Sedan, the Coupé is available with a host of new assistance systems that make driving even safer and more comfortable. The “Intelligent Drive” systems include PRE-SAFE® Brake with pedestrian recognition, DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist and Stop&Go Pilot for partially autonomous driving, Brake Assist BAS PLUS with Cross-Traffic Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus and Night View Assist Plus.

If desired, the interior of the S-Class Coupé can be even more sumptuously luxurious and comfortable. The AIR-BALANCE package with scent dispenser and ionization is available as an option, as is arm-rest heating as part of the Warmth Comfort package. The ENERGIZING massage function based on the hot-stone principle is available with the Seat Comfort package (special equipment).
