The S-Class Coupé Concept provides a clear vision of the next model generation at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt. With its appearance and style it embodies the design philosophy of sensual clarity. In the interior with its architecture and exclusive appointments the four-seater defines the state of the art of modern luxury.

Sensual clarity as an expression of modern luxury - this was the focus for the designers, and is the design philosophy of Mercedes-Benz. The goal is to create clear contours and smooth surfaces that express high technology while exuding emotional appeal. The sensual clarity is reflected in the core design values of tradition, emotion and progressivism.

A Mercedes-Benz is always recognizable as a Mercedes-Benz. The designers draw from a gene-pool of styling features typical of the brand, incorporating new stylistic developments in the interests of keeping tradition alive.

Exterior Design

The flowing profile of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupé Concept embodies sensual clarity in a modern way. It is characterized by typical rear-wheel drive proportions, which are emphasized by the Mercedes-typical signature, the dropping line. The long hood with distinctive lines and powerdomes, the crouched greenhouse with high beltline, the accentuated wheel arches as well as the 21-inch wheels (tires at front 265/35 R21, at rear 295/35 R21) and the visually broad rear substantiate the claim of the S-Class Coupé Concept as a masterpiece of automotive refinement.

With a wheelbase of 116 inches the coupé measures 198.8 inches in length, 77 inches in width and 55.5 inches in height.

Positively arched surfaces give the S-Class Coupé Concept a sensual character. The sculpted appearance lends it classic elegance that forms a perfect symbiosis with the modern-progressive design idiom.

The view from the side is marked by the dropping line in keeping with the emotional character of the vehicle. It underscores the brand-typical proportions like a signature. The lines are deliberately reduced to the basics. This creates a timeless clarity.

The full-LED headlamps with their iconic eyebrows as daytime driving lamps lend it an self-assured and distinctive gaze. On the S-Class Coupé Concept the eyebrows have been further advanced with a semicircular counterswish. The diamond-look of the headlamps and the tail lamps underline the luxurious appointments of the show car.
