Mercedes-Benz has already showed us the 2018 S-Class sedan. Now it's time to unveil the sportier two-door coupe and cabriolet versions. Yes, both of these will be unveiled at the upcoming Frankfurt motor show. And ahead of this reveal we want to add to your excitement through this picture gallery. You’ll love it if you are someone who loves the wind through your hair more than the roof over your head.
The two-door car still follows its predecessor's design and shape. However, this time, the carmaker has tweaked the front to give the car a sportier stance.
Move on from the aggressive bumpers and cast an eye towards the headlamps. Here you will notice, the cluster shape remains unchanged, but the internals are new, thus adding to its appeal.
The AMG variant of the S-Class Cabriolet features the outlandish 'Panamericana' grille with vertical slats. However, it’s more purposeful as it helps in cooling down the engines as well.
On the other hand, the regular models of the open-top car get the usual chrome infused grille. This one isn't as aggressive or sporty looking, but it still adds to the flair.
As for changes at the back, Mercedes-Benz has reworked on the bumpers. They nicely combine that sporty yet luxurious feel with the chrome-plated quad exhausts and revised sills.
The new OLED tail lamps get 66 OLED elements that are individually controllable. They overlap each other and curve around the internals. Furthermore, they light up in sequence to add to the glamour.
The S-Class coupe and the cabriolet sport the same cosmetic changes. However, amongst the two freshened two-door sportscars, it’s the convertible that hogs the limelight due to its open-top.
The fabric roof has three layers to ensure that the cabin is as quiet as the metal-roofed S-Class saloon or coupe siblings. Besides it opens/closes in just 20 seconds.
The cabin features a new three-spoke steering wheel and a new COMAND infotainment system. There are two 12.3-inch screens - one for the digital instrument cluster and the other for everything else.
Additionally, there are three new interior trims and a new black-and-red upholstery choice. The latter might look a little flamboyant, but it's still tastefully done.
As for powertrains, Mercedes has replaced the S550 by a new. This comes powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 mill belting out 463bhp and 700Nm of torque.
The range-topping AMG S65 carries over the 6.0-litre twin-turbo V12 belting out 621bhp and 1,000Nm of torque.
To deal with the extra torque on board, the S65 is the only car to get the 7-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. All other siblings feature the brand's new 9-speed automatic transmission.
