Let’s ignore the flowery marketing adjectives. The new S-Class Coupe is simply hot. Big two-door Benz models have traditionally been classy albeit subdued. This one clearly boasts the new design language seen in the A-Class and CLA saloon. It’s youthful, striking and we’re looking forward to seeing it in the flesh.

Its makers describe it as “the ultimate in aesthetic sportiness”. And it’s hard to argue with that: this has to be our pick as the sexiest Benz to emerge from Stuttgart in a while. Even the headlamps received pedantic levels of attention. About 47 Swarovski crystals were squeezed into either’s confines, achieving impressive bling levels.

New technologies like the active curve tilting function promise to give it a ride that mirrors the graceful exterior. Basically, the system enables the vehicle to lean into a bend like “a motorcyclist”, absorbing abrupt side-to-side motion before it disrupts passengers. Sounds gimmicky. Let’s see if it works.

It’ll also be available with their Magic Body Control system, which works like a pair of eyes, setting the car’s suspension up for forthcoming undulations and road imperfections.

The interior design is as fluid as that of the exterior’s. It looks a lot like a more extravagant version of the new C-Class we say. You even get seatbelt extenders, which reach outward for easier reach, just like those you’d find on an old SEC. Mercedes throws in a “Super Sport” steering too, with galvanised spokes.

An exhaust system with flaps aim to do a good job of accentuating the aural emissions of the Coupe’s engine. Debuting at the Geneva motor show, it’ll be shown with a V8 twin-turbocharged mill packing 700Nm.
