Mercedes-Benz Concept S-Class Coupe reveals ‘concrete vision’

The future of Mercedes-Benz premium flagship Concept S-Class Coupe will be on display in Frankfurt. The German automaker seeks to bridge tradition with the future with a refined design that provides “sensual clarity.”

Under the hood of the Concept S-Class Coupe is a V-8 Biturbo engine that generates 335 kW (455 hp) and produces up to 700 Nm of torque.

The coupe’s exterior lives up to the theme with familiar rear-wheel drive and a familiar Mercedes-Benz-styled bonnet. The wheelbase is 2945 mm and the coupe measures 5050 mm in length, 1958 mm in width and 1409 mm in height.

Inside, the coupe features seamless Mercedes-Benz design and latest technology. A touch screen display with four world clocks is set within the center console. The central command unit in the console that resembles a  shiny jewel is actually a high-quality “black diamond” surface that creates depth of field.

The Intelligent Drive technology consists of two cameras that sense objects and uneven roads up to 500 meters ahead and can alert the driver. Information is collected and processed in conjunction with radar and ultrasound sensors.

On the infotainment front, the Concept S-Class Coupe includes the MoodGrid software from music recognition service Gracenote that tailors music to a driver’s mood from a catalogue of more than 18 million tracks. The Garmin NaviCore navigation system provides orientation in 3D.
