The Mercedes S-Class saloon represents the ultimate in limousine luxury and continues to set the standards for technology and safety. But for those of us that want all that technology and luxury in a car that’s both more sporting and more stylish to look at, there’s this, the two-door Mercedes S-Class Coupé.
It's available with three engines: an entry-level 4.7-litre turbocharged V8 in the S 500, a bi-turbo 5.5-litre V8 in the raucous S 63 AMG and a staggering 6.0-litre turbocharged V12 in the range-topping S 65 AMG. The S 500 is available only in AMG Line trim, and at a price that puts it in competition with luxury coupés such as the expensive Bentley Continental GT, as well as slightly cheaper options such as the BMW 6 Series and the Maserati GranTurismo.
