Mercedes-Benz revealed the production version of the S-Class Coupe at the Geneva Motor Show. It combines sports car proportions with the usual luxury and technology features.
Available initially only with a 4.7-liter V8 biturbo engine (in S 500 guise) producing 455hp and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque, the S-Class Coupé is likely to receive 8- and 12-cylinder AMG versions (S 63 AMG and S 65 AMG), as well as a 12-cylinder S 600 edition.
It is also the first production car to feature the Magic Body Control's new active curve tilting function. According to Thomas Weber, head of Mercedes-Benz research and development, “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,” “On country roads in particular, this means more driving fun and comfort for our customers,” he adds.
The Coupé is available with a series of new assistance systems reunited under the “Intelligent Drive” name, which 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.
