Take a good look for the latest S-class coupe. That’s right, slow down and stop pressing your mouse or swiping your screen for just a few seconds. The vehicle is really magnificent, no? However pictures don’t even get it's gigantic size, it's presence, its curves. It is definitely not a supermodel, a waif of the sports vehicle built to appeal equally to gawking adolescents and the ones a lot more chronologically advanced yet evenly not secure. This is a modern Mercedes, completely realized.
An extra second to remember the CL-class, please, the existing lady of any coupe that’s been haunting Benz dealers for years now. Okay, done with that, no eulogy needed. Mercedes sold fewer than 500 of which a year ago. We won’t be surprised when it sees additional buyers for the new B-pillarless S550 during the first month of sales, which likely will probably be October. Pricing has yet to be stated, but expect it to start close to $120,000.
So, the S-class coupe is costly, yes. As it should be, for a car that stands atop the Mercedes product range. Turn up the 4.7-liter twin-turbocharged V-8, and the exhaust rumbles louder than the S-class sedan’s, even though it’s the same engine making the same 449 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. The coupe feels faster to accelerate, shift, and shed speed. Cutting 8.7 inches of wheelbase creates it a sportier proposition compared to sedan, while we finally get one on our scales, the coupe ought to be lighter by the few hundred pounds, if Mercedes is to be believed. Sprinting through traffic in the land of Gucci, the S550 coupe feels more nimble than any CL ever has, despite measurements that track in a few inches of their predecessor’s in most dimension.
