Not all that glitters is gold – The Mercedes-Benz S500 Coupe goes flashy

Widely known as one of the most luxurious and technologically advanced automobiles ever built, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class has sent its offspring into the world, passing on its visionary high-performance features and good looks. But for an instant there, an S500 Coupe has just become the black sheep of the family. Well, not literally, but we have never heard of the gold sheep.

It was the Los Angeles-based Impressive Wrap company that made the standardly monumental S-Class Coupe lose its class, by covering it into what the hip hoppers would put next to half naked pretty girls in their videos, fitted with a set of special suspensions to make it jump up and down by the beat. And the custom-printed Hexis design running from front to rear does not help much either.

The Mercedes-Benz S500 Coupe – refined by nature and damaged by imagination – got though, some great looking set of Zito Wheels, maybe just to partly save the high-class reputation of the range.  Luckily, the 21×9 wheels at the front and 21×10 at the rear are finished in a shade of Gloss Black, wrapped in 255/30/21, 295/25/21 Toyo T1R tires, respectively.

No word on a possible power boost though. In its standard version, the over $120,000 car is powered by the 455-horsepower 4.7-liter turbo engine sends all the power to the rear wheels via the 9-speed automatic 9G-Tronic.
