Take a good look at the newest S-class coupe. That’s right, slow down and stop clicking your mouse or swiping your screen for just a few moments. The vehicle is truly magnificent, simply no? But images don’t even capture its enormous measurement, it's presence, its curves. It is not a supermodel, a waif of a sports vehicle meant to attractiveness equally to gawking adolescents and others more chronologically advanced however equally not secure. This is a modern Mercedes, totally noticed.
A further next to keep in mind the CL-class, please, the existing lady of the coupe that’s been haunting Benz dealers for years now. Okay, done with that, no eulogy required. Mercedes sold fewer than 500 of them a year ago. We won’t be shocked if it finds far more customers for the new B-pillarless S550 from the first month of sales, which likely is going to be October. Pricing has yet to be announced, but assume it to start near $120,000.
So, the S-class coupe is costly, yes. Since it needs to be, for any car that stands atop the Mercedes product range. Turn on the 4.7-liter twin-turbocharged V-8, also, the tire out rumbles louder than the S-class sedan’s, although it’s the same engine making the same 449 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. The coupe feels quicker 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 must be lighter by a several hundred pounds, if Mercedes shall 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 that predecessor’s in every dimension.
