The next generation S-class will grow from just being a sedan into filling the rolls of the Maybachs and of the CL coupe. This is the first time the replacement for the CL-Class has been photographed with a somewhat lighter camouflage. The model is to be known as the S?class Coupe, filling a niche much like the C? and E-class two-door models.
Front end styling looks slightly different to the S-class. The headlights look a bit surprised, like slimmer versions of the ones on the SL. Engine-wise, we should still see the twin-turbo V8 and V12 units seen on current Mercedes models. The Germans are also working on a twin-turbo 3-litre V6 for the C400 which could fit very well into the range. The new S-class could debut as early as April’s Shanghai Auto Show, though this coupe should arrive towards the end of the year or even later.
