The first model in the brand new Mercedes-Benz S-Class range is on display at the Geneva Motor Show 2014. The Mercedes-Benz S 500 Coupe is the major highlight of the stand at the Geneva Motor Show. The S-Class Coupe replaces the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class as the top of the range Coupe! We took a closer look at the car on the show floor!
The Mercedes-Benz S 500 Coupe is the first model to break cover. Mercedes-Benz S 500 Coupe comes equipped with the same 4.6-liter V8 biturbo engine as the sedan, delivering a total of 455 hp and a peak of 700 Nm of torque. It also features similar levels of equipment with the Mercedes-Benz Magic Body Control, Pre-Safe brake and Distronic Plus with Steer Assist and Stop & Go Pilot all featuring.
The Mercedes-Benz S 500 Coupe remains very true to the original Coupe Concept revealed last year at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2013. The front-end is significantly sleeker than the sedan. The LED headlights are also very similar to those of the sedan. The ice profile gets a tight design with a central line running the length of the car. At the rear, rectangular dual rear exhaust pipes give the car a powerful look.
Expect the Mercedes-Benz S 500 Coupe to be joined in the very near future by a Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG Coupe and Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG Coupe. We are not yet sure whether Mercedes-Benz will release models with lesser engines than the S 500 Coupe.
