The star of the new Mercedes S-Class Coupé shines at the Geneva Motor Show



Mercedes-Benz may have revealed the production version of the S-Class Coupe three weeks ago, but it’s at Geneva Motor Show where the real world premiere of the car takes place.

The successor to the Mercedes-Benz CL remains very close to the S-Class Coupe Concept revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show last year, combining the proportions of a sports car with the usual luxury and technology features one expects in this class.

Available initially only with a 4.7-liter twin-turbo V8 engine (in S 500 trim) producing 455 hp and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque, the S-Class Coupé is likely to receive AMG 8- and 12-cylinder versions ( S 63 AMG and S 65 AMG), as well as an S 600 12-cylinder edition.

The S-Class Coupe is the first production car to feature Magic Body Control’s new active cornering feature. “It allows the S-Class Coupé to lean into a bend in the same way as a motorcyclist, thereby reducing lateral acceleration acting on the occupants,” explains Thomas Weber, head of research and development at Mercedes- Benz. “Especially on country roads, this means more driving pleasure and comfort for our customers,” he adds.

Other important technical innovations of the new model include the head-up display and the new touchpad.

Like the S-Class Saloon, the Coupé is available with a series of new assistance systems united under the name “Intelligent Drive”, which include Pre-Safe Brake with pedestrian recognition, Distronic Plus with Steering Assist and Stop&Go Pilot for partially autonomous driving, BAS Brake Assist Plus with Cross Traffic Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus and Night Vision Assist Plus.
