It’s hard not to be impressed by the curve tilting function, which derives its name from the fact that the car’s body tilts inwards by up to 2.65° when taking a bend. In this way, the lateral forces felt by the occupants are reduced significantly and dynamic cornering becomes even more of a pleasure. Looking ahead to enhance your comfort: the suspension sets itself up to negotiate bumps in the road before the car drives over them.
The power of the new S-Class Coupé is not just felt directly by the driver, it is also translated directly into propulsion. Standard equipment for the new S-Class Coupé includes a 7-speed automatic transmission. You hardly notice this, however, as the low engine speed increments between the individual gears make for seamlessly smooth gear changes.
At the time of market launch, the S-Class Coupé will debut with the M278 V8 petrol engine combining superior performance with low consumption. This compact, weight-optimised power unit combines efficiency-enhancing 3rd-generation direct injection with twin turbocharging for outstanding responsiveness.
