The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is known as one of the world’s most impressive luxury four-door sedans. It’s been like that ever since it was launched in 1954, but for short periods of time, the S-Class was also offered as a two-door coupe. It first happened in 1961 and lasted for just 10 years. It returned in the 1980s as the SEC Coupe, but it disappeared again when the Germans decided to introduce the CL-Class range in 1998. Sixteen years later, the coupe body returned as part of the sixth-generation S-Class (W222), and, along with it, the Stuttgart crew launched the S63 AMG Coupe , the most powerful two-door, full-size car in Mercedes’ history.
While the S-Class Coupe hardly found any competition from its traditional BMW and Audi rivals, who have yet to develop coupes based on the 7 Series and A8 , respectively, the S65 AMG Coupe propels the Mercedes-Benz brand straight into Bentley and Rolls-Royce territory. The Merc has the power, the luxury and all the other credentials to compete with the big boys, but will it stand a chance against the best vehicles the British have to offer?
