"As exclusive as it gets – the ultimate in aesthetic sportiness", stated Ola Källenius, Member of the Board of Management, Sales and Marketing Mercedes-Benz Cars, in a press release distributed today. "The breathtaking design of the Concept S-Class Coupe marked by sporty-classic proportions and sensual purity is transferred to the series-production S-Class Coupe virtually unaltered. The large coupe has always been the supreme pinnacle of our model range and that's why it's now called the 'S-Class' again."

"The world premiere of the active curve tilting function demonstrates the possibilities offered by Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive," Prof Dr Thomas Weber, member of the board of management of Daimler AG with responsibility for corporate research and Mercedes-Benz Cars development, said in the same press release. "The vehicle leans into bends much like a motorcyclist, thereby reducing the lateral acceleration acting on the vehicle's occupants. On country roads in particular, this means greater driving pleasure and ride comfort for our customers."

The new S-Class Coupe will have its world premiere at the Geneva International Motor Show (March 6 – 16, 2014) with U.S. dealer deliveries scheduled to begin in the fall of 2014. The two-door S550 Coupe will be available in the U.S. as a 4MATIC only with a 4.7L V8 biturbo engine. The S550 Coupe has an output of 449 hp and its torque level peaks at 516 lb-ft. The sporty driving experience is significantly enhanced by the finely tuned sound produced by the exhaust system.

When available in California, the new S-Class Coupe will be offered locally by Mercedes-Benz of Palm Springs. Manufacturer suggested retail prices for the new coupes are not yet available. The 2014 line of S-Class Sedans was recently named "Luxury Car of the Year" by Top Gear Magazine.
