Mercedes-Benz New S-500 Coupe: Typical class and optional Swarovski crystals


Mercedes-Benz new S-Class Coupé brings forth the best of many aspects. It’s a helluva big luxury sporty coupé bursting with technology at every corner. The two-door coupé can be optionally equipped with MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension system with curve tilting function. There’s a head-up display and touch pad feature. Expressive headlamps, an optional feature sees 47 Swarovski crystals in each headlight.

“The world premiere of the active curve tilting function demonstrates the possibilities offered by Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive,” notes Prof Dr Thomas Weber, member of the board of management of Daimler AG with responsibility for corporate research and Mercedes-Benz Cars development. “The vehicle leans into bends much like a motorcyclist, thereby reducing the lateral acceleration acting on the vehicle’s occupants. On country roads in particular, this means greater driving pleasure and ride comfort for our customers.”

Available with a 4663 cc V8 biturbo engine, S 500 Coupé nominal output is 335 kW (455 hp) with max torque at 700 Nm. We will have to wait a little longer to hear the emotional exhaust system sound.

MAGIC BODY CONTROL first shown in new S-Class will be an available option. Curve tilting is a world first for series-production cars, and essentially means the coupe leans into bends like a motorcyclist or skier does. Lateral acceleration is reduced and passengers sit more firmly. The feature betters motoring enjoyment and comfort on country roads.
