Adding even more elegance and refinement to the “best car in the world”, the Mercedes S-Class, is no mean feat – but the coupé version of the manufacturer’s world-famous luxury car manages it with ease.
Its dramatic looks are accompanied by a cabin of unparalleled comfort and convenience, and a range of mighty yet cultured engines that complement the exquisite ride quality perfectly.

An impressive array of standard equipment makes the S-Class Coupé, like its saloon counterpart, one of the safest vehicles on the road as well as the most luxurious. Occupants are protected by as many as eight airbags, as well as a Pre-Safe system which tenses seatbelts, closes windows, and adjusts seat positions for optimum protection if a collision appears inevitable.
A variety of traction control systems allow the driver to retain control in the toughest circumstances, whilst not interfering with the dynamism of the vehicle.Proactive measures such as Attention Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist, meanwhile, help to prevent fatigue and momentary losses of concentration from becoming dangerous situations.
Expressive headlamps (which, as an option, include LED Intelligent Lights with genuine Swarovski crystals) and a gaping, single-louvred diamond radiator grille site below a long, brawny bonnet, giving the S-Class Coupé a hugely potent front profile.
The character of the car, however, is more effortlessly accomplished than brash.
The wasp-waisted mid-section, modest rear and low roofline combine subtlety with assertiveness.
The panoramic roof allows maximum light into the plush cabin, enhancing its serene and spacious ambience. Soft-touch, electrically-adjustable nappa leather seats and upholstery complements premium chrome and wood detailing.
The insulation of the cabin lets in almost no wind, road or engine noise, whilst the Magic Body Control suspension provides flawless ride quality over the most bumpy and broken road surfaces. Thermotronic automatic climate control and ambient lighting in seven different colours make the atmosphere still more relaxed.
An enormously powerful 4.7 litre, twin-turbo V8 petrol engine powers the S-Class Coupé. Its 455hp and colossal maximum torque of 700Nm, which is available at just 1800-3500rpm, can propel it from 0-62mph in a bare 4.6 seconds, and all the way to an (electronically limited) top speed of 155mph.
The powertrain is linked to a 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic transmission, the precise calibration of which provides a constant surge of power during acceleration as well as reducing fuel consumption – combined fuel economy is 33.2mpg, a modest figure for a vehicle with such performance capabilities.
Although the S-Class Coupé is built around its extraordinary engine, the driver-convenience technology available inside is no less impressive. The Comand Online infotainment system, controlled through a user-friendly touchpad or Linguatronic voice control, offers access to communications, navigational and online functions.
Optional extras include a Heads-Up display, ensuring that you need never take your attention from the road, a 13-speaker Burmester sound system, and even an “Air Balance” package that fills the cabin with a variety of pleasant fragrances.
