Mercedes-Benz just introduced its redesigned S-Class flagship sedan, a car that’s loaded with more bleeding-edge features than an Airbus A380 jet, but the company is also working on a two-door version of the Sonderklasse, as revealed by a handful design sketches.
Initially when these illustrations hit the Cyb3rw3bz their authenticity was questioned but Mercedes just confirmed that they’re legitimate. The concept version of this large 2+2 will debut at, you guessed it, next week’s Frankfurt Motor Show.
Judging by these sketches the S-Class coupe will look considerably different from its four-door brethren. It appears to have a more aggressive front end, unique tail lamps that are quite slender and a gracefully sloping roofline.
In spite of its exterior changes the car’s interior looks almost identical to what’s installed in the S-Class sedan, with a few minor changes of course. The door panels have to be different to accommodate the longer access portals. Additionally there’s a three-spoke steering wheel and the seats look unique.
Nothing is known about what could power this vehicle, but it will probably be the same lineup of engines that are already under the four-door S-Class’ hood.
Look for more information on this concept vehicle next week. Beyond that it’s rumored a production model will take a bow in January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan.
