Mercedes-Benz S-Klasse Coupé (C 217) 2015

New addition to the dream Coupé family

Mercedes-Benz has extended the S-Class Coupé model range with the addition of the S 400 4MATIC Coupé rated at 270 kW (367 hp) and retailing at an entry-level price beginning at 99,960 euros.

This means that six versions of the sporty large Coupé are now available in all — the S 500 and S 500 4MATIC plus the Mercedes-AMG models S 63, S 63 4MATIC and S 65.

 

Since its launch a good year ago, the S-Class Coupé has already won numerous awards for its breathtaking design, including the “iF product design award 2015” and the “Internet Auto Award 2014” (Europe-wide) as well as best-in-class accolades for the exclusive two-door car in the “autonis” readers’ poll of the “auto, motor und sport” magazine and the “All-wheel-drive car of the year 2015” poll conducted by “Auto Bild Allrad”.

The S-Class Coupé model range previously comprised the S 500, the S 500 4MATIC and the three AMG models S 63, S 63 4MATIC and S 65.

The S 400 4MATIC Coupé has now been added as the sixth model in the line-up. The V6 engine has a rated output of 270 kW (367 hp) and generates peak torque of 500 Nm.

The two-door Coupé applies its power to the road by way of the standard-fit 4MATIC all-wheel drive and the 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission.
