The all new 2015 S-Class Coupe features all of the new generation upgrades of the 2014 S-Class sedan. This model replaces the outgoing CL-Class coupe.
Here’s a great article from Peter Bleakney on autos.ca.
When Mercedes-Benz unleashed its latest generation S-Class sedan onto the world last year, it effectively redefined the premium executive segment, such was that car’s all-conquering interpretation of full-size personal opulence. Safety, comfort, gizmos for days and an exquisitely crafted interior were wrapped in an elegantly imposing shell that not only said “I’ve arrived”, it also inspired involuntary genuflecting and peasant-like muttering.
Quick too, thanks to that creamy 449-hp, 516 lb-ft 4.7L twin-turbo V8.
But sporty? Hardly. Nor was the S 550 sedan ever meant to be.
Now Benz brings us a coupe version of its new S-Class that ramps up the agility, looks, price, desirability and… well, just about everything but back seat room and trunk space.
The S 550 Coupe is unassailably gorgeous. Formal, yes. Understated, absolutely. Enormous, oh yeah.

With a starting price of $147,500, you could almost consider it a bargain if you make a habit of hanging out in Bentley or Maserati showrooms.
