Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe to be launched in India tomorrow

Mercedes-Benz is going to launch the S-Class Coupe in India tomorrow. The two-door coupe will be introduced in two versions – a standard S 500 Coupe and a performance-oriented S 63 AMG coupe.

The S-Class Coupe sports the instantly recognisable flowing lines and rounded look of the W222 S-Class saloon, which gives it the elegant look of a Mercedes-Benz sedan. The front gets a wide chrome-embellished grille with a single horizontal slat and the three-pointed star. The shortened rear section ditches the two rear doors and adopts a dropping roofline to give the car the distinctive character of a coupe. It gets the Magic Body Control to offer a comfortable a smooth drive and superior driving performance. The S 63 AMG Coupe is 65 kilograms lighter thanks to the AMG lightweight performance package. It also gets an aggressive body kit, aerodynamic front and rear bumpers with splitter, AMG-spec alloy wheels and bigger disc brakes to offer better stopping power.

While the performance figures and price might suggest otherwise, the S 500 Coupe is actually the entry-level variant of this new S-Class Coupe range. Under the bonnet is a 4.6-litre V8 biturbo engine which produces 455bhp and a peak torque of 700Nm. The S 63 AMG on the other hand, is powered by a 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine pumping out a monstrous 585bhp and 900Nm of torque. Both variants get the 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system. While the S 63 AMG Coupe employs a 7G AMG Speedshift MCT seven-speed transmission, the S 500 Coupe gets the tried and tested 7G-Tronic Plus gearbox.

In the Indian market, the S 63 AMG Coupe will rub shoulders with the Maserati GranTurismo and the BMW M6 Gran Coupe, while the S 500 Coupe will compete with the Audi RS5.
