2017 IAA ready for the refreshed Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe image

The German automaker took to China earlier this year to present the facelifted S-Class sedan, but held back on the coupe and cabriolet range for its home 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.

There are virtually no surprises, with the refreshed S-Class Coupe range following closely on the 2018 model year updates we’ve previously seen on the four door. Design wise, the new S-Class Coupé get front aprons with chrome-plated front splitter and larger air inlets, while we also notice restyled side skirts and chrome-plated twin tailpipe trims with a V12-inspired look. The AMG Line comes with new front and rear aprons, larger three-dimensional air inlets at the front, each with wo chrome-plated fins. At the back the main novelty is represented by the introduction of OLED (organic light emitting diode) taillights, wafer-thin layers of organic materials can be printed on a glass plate and then made to illuminate. 66 ultra-flat OLEDs seem to float inside the tail lamp – and for the AMG Line there are also two new wheel designs.

Inside there are three new trim lines (high-gloss brown burr walnut wood, satin-finish grey ash wood and flowing lines designo magnolia wood), complete with three new upholstery lines (designo Exclusive nappa leather AMG Line Plus porcelain/tizian red, designo Exclusive nappa leather porcelain/tizian red and designo Exclusive nappa leather AMG Line Plus Bengal red/black). The Widescreen Cockpit is also present with two new high-resolution 12.3 inch displays and the models naturally feature the latest version of the COMAND Online infotainment system. A premiere is represented by the new V8 biturbo in the S 560 Coupé, packing 469 hp and 700 Nm, and the entry-level model equipped with the V6 petrol engine has been renamed to the S 450. At the top of the range naturally sit the AMG S63 and S65 models. The first has a V8 packing 612 hp and 900 Nm, while the latter goes for 630 and 1000 Nm. The sprint to 62 mph / 100 kph takes just 3.5 and 4.1 seconds, respectively.
