Mercedes Benz says the new S-Class Coupé combines the classic proportions of a large, sporty coupé with modern luxury and state-of-the art technology.
As a world premiere, the breathtaking two-door coupé can be optionally equipped with the 'Magic Body Control' suspension system with curve tilting function.
Additional technical highlights are the head-up display and touch pad feature.
Optionally available expressive headlamps, each featuring 47 Swarovski crystals, produce a uniquely striking appearance.
"As exclusive as it gets - the ultimate in aesthetic sportiness," said Ola Källenius, Member of the Board of Management, Sales and Marketing Mercedes-Benz Cars.
"The breathtaking design of the Concept S-Class Coupé, marked by sporty-classic proportions and sensual purity, is transferred to the series-production S-Class Coupé virtually unaltered.
"The large coupé has always been the supreme pinnacle of our model range and that's why it's now called the "S-Class" again."
"The world premiere of the active curve tilting function demonstrates the possibilities offered by Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive," noted Prof Dr Thomas Weber, member of the board of management of Daimler AG with Responsibility for Corporate Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development.
"The vehicle leans into bends much like a motorcyclist, thereby reducing the lateral acceleration acting on the vehicle's occupants.
"On country roads in particular, this means greater driving pleasure and ride comfort for our customers."
The new S-Class Coupé will have its world premiere at the Geneva International Motor Show (March 6-16 2014).
The two-door car will be available with a 4663cc V8 biturbo engine.
The S 500 Coupé has a nominal output of 455hp; its torque level peaks at 700nm.
The sporty motoring experience is significantly enhanced by the emotional sound produced by the exhaust system.
