The high-end coupé
"The success of the new S-Class impressively demonstrates Mercedes-Benz's status in the luxury segment. The new Coupé underlines this position in exclusive fashion. The large coupé has always been the supreme pinnacle of our model range and that's why it's now called the 'S-Class' Coupé," says Florian Seidler, Executive Director, Mercedes-Benz Cars South Africa.
"The world premiere of the active curve tilting function demonstrates the possibilities offered by Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive. The vehicle leans into bends much like a motorcyclist, thereby reducing the lateral acceleration acting on the vehicle's occupants. On country roads in particular, this means greater driving pleasure and ride comfort for our customers," adds Seidler.
The S-Class Coupé will be available with a 4663 cc V8 biturbo engine. The S 500 Coupé has a rated output of 335 kW, its torque level peaks at 700 Nm. The sporty motoring experience is significantly enhanced by the emotional sound produced by the exhaust system.
