The S500 coupé is an intelligent ride engineered for perfection

What it is about the coupé that leaves so many desirous for a spot in the cockpit? When it comes to the realm of motoring, two doors are almost always better than four. The new S-Class coupé from Mercedes-Benz is every inch the stunner. For one, the generous ride features the classic proportions of a large, sporty coupé, giving both rider and passengers plenty of wiggle room. Debuting for the first time is an active curve tilting function that allows for the car to lean into bends the very same way a motorcyclist would. This function reduces the lateral acceleration acting upon the vechicle, ensuring you're in for a smoother, more pleasant ride.

Initially available with a 4663 cc V8 biturbo engine, the 455-hp S500 coupé can reach torque level peaks of 700Nm. If the panoramic roof which spans over two-thirds of the car isn't luxurious enough for you, you can up the ante with seats crafted in nappa leather as well as LED headlamps embellished with 47 Swarovski crystals. Fitted with a Burmester surround sound system, the S500 coupé will please even the most discerning audiophile.
