Mercedes Benz shows off new Concept S Class Coupe
The Concept S Class was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2013 last week. A lot of the coupe’s classic design elements, like the hood and belt line have been prominent when mated with 21-inch wheels, giving the car a more aggressive look. The full-LED headlamps design is a first for this series in the Mercedes and it gives the Concept S-Class Coupe a much more jewel-like appearance while staying true to its classic appeal. The car’s striking modern interpretation of key Mercedes’ design elements has been carried through in the interior with features like its “black diamond” surface that uses a process called Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) to deposit a precious metal on high-gloss chrome surface at temperatures at 1,830°F.
Mercedes ties to the world of high fashion, additional interior design features include panel and seats made from the finest calfskin and silk carpet made by hand. The concept headliner is made from hand-woven silk. Features of Concept S-Class Coupe include a new stereo camera that can detect road surfaces ahead and adjust the suspension accordingly.
The stereo camera can create a three-dimensional view of the area upto 160 feet in front of the vehicle, and as “6DVision” can detect the position and movement of objects. The coupe also has a new MoodGrid music software feature that compiles pre-selected songs from a catalogue of 18 million tracks so that the driver doesn’t have to search through their own music. The Concept S-Class Coupe is powered by M-B’s new 4.7-liter direct-injected V8 Biturbo which can produce 449 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of peak torque.
