Before its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, Mercedes-Benz released a video this week that shows off the new S-Class Coupe. The video—available on the brand’s YouTube channel—describes the salient features of the new vehicle: 47 Swarovski crystals in the headlights, hot stone massage seats, head-up display and hand-writing touchpad.
The press release that accompanied the video touched on a few additional aspects that we found interesting: Active curve tilting function works with a pair of front-mounted cameras that scan the road, adjust the suspension accordingly, and tilt the car’s body up to 2.5 degrees during particularly sharp turns. The effect this produces will be to let passengers and driver remain upright and comfortable on the curviest of roads.
Also present is exhaust noise control, internal flaps within the exhaust pipes to silence or free the engine note depending on your mood. So if you’re decamping late at night and wish to do so quietly, or are feeling enervated and want your vehicle to reflect your enthusiasm, it is prepared to follow.
Magic sky control turns the panoramic sun roof from transparent to opaque at the touch of a button, a 3-D surround audio system envelops you with clear sound, diamond-stitched Nappa leather seats are available, and the air can be perfumed or purified via ionization.
Seating for four is standard in the two-door coupe, and the absence of a middle pillar makes rear entry easy. The 2015 S-Class Coupe will go on sale April 7, 2014 and will be available in dealerships this fall.
