The Frankfurt Motor Show is this week and Mercedes brought out their Concept S-Class Coupe. No longer under their short-lived CL-Class model, the planned production coupe will once again be sold under the popular S-Class moniker. In terms of styling, the concept features a CLA-like nose on a larger model with a more intricate grille. LIke other coupes that Mercedes makes. this one has a a pillar-free greenhouse to give the cabin an open feel, while the rear is a bit reminiscent of the SLS AMG gullwing coupe.
It’s powered by their popular 4.6-liter twin-turbo V8 that pushes out 449 hp, but if it makes it into production would most likely feature a higher-power version. Inside, expect it to feel like any other S-Class model around with a few changes over sedan models like a three-spoke steering wheel and a center-console-mounted bank of world time zone clocks, presumably a concept-only feature.
