Following the S Class sedan’s formal unveiling in Shanghai in April, Mercedes has taken the covers off its coupé and cabriolet counterparts in the lead up to 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show on September 14.
Similar to the sedan, both cars are modern marvels and upon launch, will include the most advanced motorist assistance systems presently available from any automaker. For example, both automobiles are able to not just autonomously preserve a safe range from the automobile in front, they’re also capable of looking after the steering too.
But that’s simply the start; due to the fact that they know the road ahead, they can slow down before striking a corner, bend or junction and, as both automobiles are about stabilizing sporty performance with optimal levels of comfort and well-being, these systems likewise inform the suspension and dampeners, straightening out creases and body roll before getting in or leaving a corner.
The new vehicles likewise get the most recent generation of Mercedes’s new widescreen digital cockpit that provides virtual representations of traditional dials and evaluates alongside infotainment and connected services across 2 12.3-inch screens. They can be operated through voice command or by touches, taps and swipes on the guiding wheel. What’s more, in leading specification models, there’s a well-being system that uses climate control, seat heatears units, interior lighting and music to assist drivers and guests feel fresher, happier or more comfy.
“The new S-Class Coupé and S-Class Cabriolet embody our analysis of modern luxury,” stated Britta Seeger, the company’s global head of sales.
While the sedan attract business minds, the coupé and drop top are intended squarely at the heart, and will be pitched as real dream cars, particularly the AMG S 63 and S 65 models.
Both of these derivatives ditch the basic Mercedes grille in favor of one just like those on the Mercedes-AMG GT.
When it comes to performance, the S 63 (which comes with four-wheel drive as basic) boasts a 4-liter V8, 612hp and a 0-100km/ h time of 3.5 seconds. Plump for the S 65 and the powerplant is of the 6-liter V12 twin turbocharged range for ultimate smoothness. There will be 630hp on tap and a big 100Nm of torque, but due to the additional weight from that engine, the car is a little slower off the line (0-100km/ h in 4.1 seconds).
“Having already carried out significant advancement work on our S-Class Saloon to further improve driving performance and individuality, we are now making the same modifications to the S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé and Cabriolet. The extensive adjustments are designed to enhance our leading position in this dream vehicle segment in regards to driving dynamics, efficiency, equipment and comfort on long journeys,” stated Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
