New Mercedes S-Class coupe is officially launched at the Geneva Motor Show

The new Mercedes S-Class coupe has been officially revealed at the Geneva Motor Show. At launch, the S-Class coupe will only be available as a S500 model, although it's very likely other models, including an even more powerful AMG version, will join the range later.  
                          

New Mercedes S-Class coupe details

As you can see from the pictures of the car in Geneva, the car gets a distinctive front grille, with a large Mercedes badge in the centre. It also has more prominent, sculpted lines running down the bonnet and the side to give it a more aggressive look than the Mercedes S-Class saloon on which it's based.
The car's powerful all-LED headlights, meanwhile, feature 47 Swarovski crystals and will be some of the most elaborate headlights around when the car goes on sale. The coupe also has pillarless doors, for better access to the rear seats and a more stylish look, while the rear lights are also full LEDs.

     
Inside, the Mercedes S-Class coupe looks similar to the saloon, although it gets three new interior colours – Bengal Red, Saddle Brown, and Porcelain. The dashboard features two large TFT screens, which allow Mercedes to cut down on buttons, and there's plenty of exposed leather and metal to create a luxury feel. The seats have an exclusive diamond-quilted finish and there's a new, more sporty three-spoke steering wheel.
The Mercedes has a hi-tech innovative touchpad system, which has intuitive smartphone controls, and can also recognise hand-written characters.

     



New Mercedes S-Class coupe specs

Sitting at the top of the Mercedes line-up means the S-Class coupe comes loaded with equipment including a panoramic sunroof, which can transform from clear to opaque at the touch of a button, and a host of safety features including PRE-SAFE, which will brake the car if it detects a collision is about to happen. It also adds adaptive cruise control that can keep a safe distance from (and match the speed of) the car in front, and Active Lane Keeping Assist, which guides the car into its lane with gentle steering inputs.
The coupe will also be available with a host of options including Magic Body Control (MBC) suspension, which uses cameras to monitor the road surface, and adjusts the car's suspension accordingly. In the coupe, MBC also incorporates lean control, which allows the car to push its weight in a corner – much like a motorcyclist – for added cornering speed. Other options include a 3D Burmester premium stereo and a hot-stone massage function for the seats.

     

New Mercedes S-Class engines

The Mercedes S500 coupe comes equipped with a 4.7-litre engine that produces 449bhp and should get the car from 0-60mph in around 4.5 seconds. Although exact figures have yet to be revealed, the coupe should return economy close to the S-Class saloon's 31.7mpg. The S500 is likely to be joined later by the performance-orientated S63 AMG – which is due to be shown at the New York Motor Show in April. There could also be a range-topping S65 AMG model too.


     

New Mercedes S-Class coupe price and release date

Expected to go on sale in October, prices for the Mercedes S500 have not been announced – but are likely to start at around £100,000. Prices for the S63 and S65 AMG performance versions are also unconfirmed, but are expected to be significantly more than the standard S-Class coupe.
