While it may have been released a couple of months ago, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe Concept has made an appearance at the Tokyo Motor Show 2013 and is looking just as good as ever.
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe Concept “embodies sensual clarity in a modern way” and is characterised by its rear-wheel drive layout and as the following images show, the S-Class Coupe Concept features a long bonnet complete with distinctive lines and power domes. The car is then rolling on a set of 21-inch wheels measuring 265/35 R 21 at the front and 295/35 R 21 at the rear. Overall, the Mercedes-Bez S-Class Coupe Concept has a wheelbase of 2945mm and measures 5050mm in length, 1958mm wide and is 1409mm high.
At the front, the S-Class Coupe Concept incorporates a diamond front grille with the traditional three-pointed star badge. It also features full-LED headlights with LED daytime running lights. While the S-Class Coupe Concept may feature the S-Class nameplate, it shares almost no common design elements with the standard S-Class sedan.
Most importantly, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe Concept is powered by a V8 Bi-Turbo engine delivering a total of 455hp from its 4.7-liter displacement. Peak output is then rated at 700Nm. While this new powerplant certainly is impressive, it’s arguably overshone by the numerous other technical components of the car like ‘Intelligent Drive’.
