Mercedes has unveiled the S550, the 2014 couple version of the S Class. This isn’t the first S Class Coupe Mercedes has produced. Prior to the last generation CL Class, the their large coupe was also called the S Class.
As you can see below, the interior is wrapped in luxury including vast amounts of supple leather and a ton of hot new technology.
I think they did a great job on the exterior also. Perhaps borrowing some inspiration from existing coupes, but really capturing the Mercedes look. The base engine is a V8 that will scoot the coupe to 60 in 4.8 seconds. When it goes on sale, it should start around $116,000. Load it up with options and the still-to-be announced AMG package and it will be closer to the Continental’s starting spot.
I’m sure several video journalists will be pairing the Mercedes S Class Coupe and the Bentley Continental GT in future head-to-head comparisons, so keep checking this blog, as I will post any videos I find.
