Mercedes-Benz is officially saying bye-bye to the CL with the Concept S-Class Coupe, which provides a pretty accurate preview of the upcoming S-Class coupe. As with most of Mercedes’ latest concept cars, the production model will be pretty much identical to the concept you see here with its long hood and fluid lines.
With a wheelbase of 116 inches the coupé measures 198.8 inches in length, 77 inches in width and 55.5 inches in height. It’s sculpted exterior gives it a more emotional design than the more traditional S-Class sedan. It’s face takes traits from other Mercedes models like the CLA-Class, while the rear takes some inspiration from the SLS AMG.
The Concept S-Class’s interior gets dual 12.3-inch digital displays and a touch screen showing four world clocks is located on the center console. Like the entire interior the seats have a highly dynamic and natural “flow of lines” and continue the sculpted design of the shapes.
The Concept S-Class Coupé is powered by a 4.6L V8 Biturbo engine with 449 hp and 516 lb-ft. of torque. The Concept S-Class Coupé is equipped with the “Intelligent Drive” technology that uses two “camera eyes,” the stereo camera can create a three-dimensional view of the area up to about 160 feet in front of the vehicle, and as “6DVision” can detect the position and movement of objects.
The suspension makes use of the new stereo camera as well: like the new S-Class, the Concept S-Class Coupé can detect surface undulations in advance. If Road Surface Scan detects such undulations with the help of the stereo camera, Magic Body Control adjusts the suspension in advance to suit the situation.
