What if the luxurious Mercedes-Benz S-Class full-size sedan lost its rear pair of doors and became a coupe? That's exactly what the German carmaker had in mind when it designed its main display vehicle for the Frankfurt Motor Show. In these photos is the sleek Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe concept.
"The S-Class sedan was received enthusiastically in the market, and it perfectly lives up to its role as a representative of the power of innovation of Mercedes-Benz," says Mercedes-Benz board member Dr. Joachim Schmidt. "With the S-Class Coupe as the traditional top of our product range, the designers take advantage of their additional freedom and thus create an automotive masterpiece."
"The S‑Class Coupe concept combines tradition and emotion, and is a symbol for the embodiment of our design style of sensual clarity," adds Daimler AG design vice president Gorden Wagener. "The perfected design with self-assured style and the highly exclusive appointments make the coupe a true design icon and an expression of modern luxury."
Among the prominent visual features of the car are its flowing profile and long hood. From the side can be seen the dome-shaped stretched roofline as well as the frameless doors. The rear, meanwhile, is highlighted by the broad shoulders. The 21-inch wheels perfectly complement the S-Class Coupe's generous dimensions of 5,050mm in length, 1,958mm in width and 1,409mm in height.
The power source? The S-Class Coupe concept is equipped with a 4.7-liter V8 twin-turbo engine that produces 455hp and a peak torque of 700Nm.
Does anyone here think Mercedes-Benz should make this a production automobile?
