    Frankfurt 2013: Mercedes-Benz Concept S Class Coupe

    Mercedes Concept S-Class Coupe says 'see ya' to the CL-Class
    Left Lane News
    by Andrew Ganz
    September 10, 2013

    After a nearly two-decade hiatus, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe nameplate is back. Debuting today at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the S-Class Coupe has been presented as a concept car - but make no mistake, a production model will follow soon.

    Set to replace the automaker's CL-Class, the S-Class coupe is a design-oriented sibling to the automaker's recently-released 2014 S-Class sedan.

    Not surprisingly, the coupe shares more than just a name with its sedan sibling. Swept-back and more flowing than the sedan, the Coupe has a lower greenhouse with a tall beltline, plus more flared wheel arches. It rides on 21-inch wheels with staggered tires, a look that probably won't make production. Uniquely, Mercedes-Benz moved its rear license plate to the car's bumper rather than integrating it into its trunk lid.

    Underhood, the concept uses Mercedes' 4.7-liter, 449-horsepower twin-turbo V8.

    Look for the production S-Class Coupe to bow within the next few months before going on sale next year as a 2015 model.

    That's a pretty radical shape. It's so swoopy that it looks more like an E-Class than an S in size. The only thing I don't really care for is the side profile looks a bit weird with the top of the front-end sticking out farther than the rest of the car. Goofy pedestrian standards that we all have to get used to I suppose.

    Quite elegant. Overall, very beautiful with the exception of the acres of black-plastic-honeycomb goin' on all over the lower front facia (a la BMW 4 series concept).

    Very good looking.

    I actually like the sides and back better than the Elmiraj, it's way more tout and sculpted.

    Well Caddy will have some real competition in its hand, coz MB is not gonna go down easy.

    The expanded snout doesn't bother me too much, but it would definitely look better if it was toned down a bit. I couldn't imagine being a pedestrian hit by that car, seems like a good way to get both knees snapped sideways.

    Beautiful, elegant lines! Almost looks BMW like. interior is a very nice riff off the more understated S-class sedan.

    This is the Elmiraj competitor... Looks like Mercedes isn't gonna roll over...

    did MB just copy the 6-series coupe? I also see a lot of SLS AMG in the rear flanks

    and that nose has to go - pedestrian standards or not... here PIGGY PIGGY
