Extra features inside and out

Unveiled in 2015, the current Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe market the return of the company’s flagship two-door model after quite a few decades. The coupe was joined by a convertible model too, which gave Merc a big advantage over automakers like BMW and Audi, which didn’t and still don’t have similar offerings. Three years later and both models have gone through a mid-cycle refresh. At the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, both cars received an Exclusive Edition package.

As with most limited edition packages usually shown at auto shows, the Exclusive Edition adds a number of extra standard features inside and out. Some exclusive equipment is also on the table, but nothing you can’t buy via Designo for other models. But the features that came with the facelift plus the extra from the Exclusive Edition package give a nice twist to the S-Class Coupe and Cabriolet and make them a bit more appealing to customers who want more than a standard model. Let’s find out more below.

The Exclusive Edition model is a rather subdued package, so don't go looking for something extraordinary on the outside

The Exclusive Edition model is a rather subdued package, so don’t go looking for something extraordinary on the outside. Sure, these cars come with the LED Intelligent Light System with Swarovski crystals as standard, but it’s not like they change the front end’s appearance in any way. There are two exclusive exterior colors though, Aragonite Silver and Rubellite Red. These are paired with soft-tops in either dark red or beige for the convertible model. Finally, the 19-inch, multi-twin-spoke wheels are available in either Aragonite Silver or two-tone Himalaya Grey / Thulium Silver. Go with the AMG Line upgrade and rims grow to 20 inches and are finished in black with a high-sheen finish.

More extra features were added inside the cabin, starting with the "Exclusive Edition" lettering on the cup holder cover on the center console. There’s also a special light brown high-gloss sen, an Asian hardwood you don’t see too often in cars. The Burmester audio system is standard for the ultimate audio experience.

Further customization is possible with the Exclusive package

Further customization is possible with the Exclusive package, which adds seats in Designo Exclusive Nappa leather in Porcelain / Titian Red or Porcelain / Expresso Brown with contrasting stitching piping. There’s also diamond design seat upholstery, similar to what you get in British luxury cars, and Nappa latter on the front and rear center armrests, the top of the dashboard, and center door panels. The roof line comes in Designo specifications with Dinamica microfiber. The special floor mats with trimmed edges in either Titian Red or Porcelain and the illuminated door sills with "Mercedes-Benz" lettering round off the interior.

The drivetrains are as standard as they get, so you can choose between two engines for the non-AMG models. First up is the 3.0-liter V-6 mill rated at 367 horsepower and 368 pound-feet of torque, which enables the coupe to hit 62 mph in 5.5 seconds (a tenth-second slower for the Cabriolet). More oomph comes from the S560 version, which uses the familiar 4.0-liter V-8 that’s good for 469 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of twist. With this engine, charging from 0 to 62 mph takes 4.6 seconds. Top speed is limited to 155 mph for both the coupe and the convertible.

Two dream cars

As members of the large and successful S-Class family, the Coupé and Cabriolet have benefited since autumn 2017 from the same extensive innovations that were only just before introduced in the Saloon. These include new or functionally considerably extended driving assistance systems, the modern control and display concept with Widescreen Cockpit and the new generation of steering wheels as well as ENERGIZING comfort control. Exclusive to both two-door models and part of the standard equipment specification are innovative OLED tail lights. Dynamic performance is assured by the new V8 biturbo engine in the S 560 Coupé (combined fuel consumption 8.0 l/100 km, combined CO2 emissions 183 g/km) and S 560 Cabriolet (combined fuel consumption 8.7 l/100 km, combined CO2 emissions 199 g/km).

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupé and its preceding model series embody the essential brand values of the world’s oldest automobile manufacturer in a particularly exclusive way. Characterised by elegance, technical innovation, performance and sportiness, these two-door models regularly set the benchmark in their world – the world of the superlative automobile. The classic luxury-class coupés have always stood at the top of the Mercedes-Benz model portfolio. Even more exclusive, and the essence of an absolute dream car, is the S-Class Cabriolet. All open-top luxury cars from Mercedes-Benz are right at the top of collectors’ wish lists today.
