Do you really need an excuse to look at some lovely images of the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe? I thought as much…
Were it not for the superb SL300 Gullwing, the S-Class Coupe could have very easily be called “the most beautiful coupe in Mercedes-Benz’s history”, but the Gullwing is still as unforgettable as ever so it will have to settle for second place. Which isn’t such a bad place to be, actually.
What you can see in this gorgeous photos is the US-spec version of the german luxury coupe, but that’s just the kind of information that goes by your ears while you casually say “yeah, yeah” and click “next” for another image in the gallery.
The americans will get the S-Class Coupe in three different flavors: the S550 4MATIC Coupe, the S63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe and the top of the line, the S65 AMG Coupe. Yep, you read it right, the most powerful version is the only one to only have rear wheel drive as opposed to four wheel drive.
We’ll skip the details on the first two and jump directly to the S65 AMG behemoth. It’s powered by a 12 cylinder 6.0 V engine pumping out 630 CP and no less than 1.000 Nm. This car accelerates extremely quickly from zero to one hundred kilometers per hour taking just four seconds, but you can bet that other acceleration times – like 100 to 200 km/h are even more impressive, since losing traction becomes less of a problem there.
But all this talk about big numbers takes the spotlight away from these gorgeous photos of the S-Class Coupe and, although an impressive feat, it’s not something we want to see. So, if you’ve made it this far, now it’s time to go back up and shuffle through the generous gallery.
