The coupe variant of the brand-new Mercedes-Benz S-class. It will replace the CL-class, and while it stays near the outgoing model’s position at the top of the brand’s schedule, it’s now developed to be a stunner– as we saw at this year’s Frankfurt automobile program when Mercedes previewed this automobile with the Concept S-class CoupÃ©. The 2015 Mercedes S class coupe will certainly be decreased by a full inch and a half from the car’s ride height, and exhibit numerous assertive and unusual styling aspects: a wide and sticking out grille, flat extended taillights, and side mirrors perched on the shoulder line rather than the front quarter window– the latter an aspect we’ll see even more of from Benz’s sportier offerings.
The interior of the brand-new S-class coupe will certainly keep crucials of the S-class sedan, such as the twin TFT screens and the column-mounted equipment selector. Considering it will certainly be lowered by a substantial margin, rear-passenger space will be somewhat tighter than in the CL, yet it needs to continue to be comfortable enough for grown-ups. The CL’s pillarless and frameless windows will stay a trademark of the two-door S-class.
The S-class coupe will emphasize the strong market positioning of the S-class. Daimler wishes that after decimating its Maybach Ã¼ber-luxury brand name, the S-class will certainly be thought about the best auto on the planet. The coupe needs to venture deep in to Bentley Continental GT area, and supply a degree of luxury and performance on the same level with the handbuilt automobiles that roll out of Crewe. With no comparable providings from Audi or BMW, the S-class coupe aims to aid verify that Mercedes is the ultimate luxury brand.
Exactly what’s even more, the S-class coupe is intended to vanquish objection of the polarizing Chinese-market-driven styling language released by primary developer Gorden Wagener.
The supports of the Mercedes-Benz S-class coupe are shown the vehicle’s four-door counterpart, and the bones will certainly function as the foundation for an approaching fabric-top convertible, too. Mercedes intends to go down substantial weight from the outgoing CL through the use of high-strength steel and aluminum.
2015 Mercedes S class Powertrains
The S-class coupe will share its powertrain choices with the sedan. There will be two twin-turbocharged V-8 models: The S550 will certainly displace 4.7 litres and group 455 horse power, and the S63 AMG will certainly have a 577-hp, 5.5-liter. All-wheel drive is likely to be typical on the S63 and readily available on the S550, however Mercedes has actually hinted that it would certainly such as to keep its 12-cylinder designs specifically rear-wheel drive.
Competitors: Bentley Continental GT, Rolls-Royce Wraith.

Mercedes-Benz will certainly release the S-class coupe in late 2014 as a 2015 design. Prices will start near $120,000 for a base S550 and technique $250,000 for a well-optioned S65.
