Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the all-new 2014 S-Class Coupe. As you may have read, the CL-Class successor will be officially showcased at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
The new S-Class Coupe has a long hood with a low greenhouse, muscular wheel arches, impressive wheels and a great “ass”. The vehicle has 197,9 inches long, 74,7 inches wide and a height of 55,5 inches. Inside the cabin, the coupe is featuring the same elements seen on the sedan.
Furthermore, we see a Super Sport steering wheel, while the analog clock was removed. In the back there are 2 individual seats. In addition, the German car manufacturer is offering an optional head-up full-color LED display. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe will be available only as an S500 version. This version is available with a 4.7 liter V8 unit rated at 455 horsepower and 700 Nm peak of torque.
According to rumors, the German manufacturer will also offer an S63 and an S65 AMG variant. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe will be available with an evolution of the Magic Body Control system. According to Mercedes, it will feature a curve tilting function allowing the model to lean into bends in a manner similar to a motorcyclist or skier.
“The function can be active as one of the three driving modes between 19 mph (30 km/h) and 119 mph (180 km/h) and has been designed to produce a more pleasant motoring experience by reducing the lateral acceleration felt by the passengers, is said in the official statement.
Within the windscreen is a stereo camera which can detect corners and which is working together with a transverse acceleration sensor. “The air suspension’s hydraulic damper units modify the rate of firmness and crucial base point individually for each damper and can incline the body of the car by up to 2.5 degrees”, said Mercedes-Benz.
