Mercedes S-Class Coupe concept to debut at Frankfurt Motor ShowWed, 05 Jun 2013 00:00:00 -0700
The new S-Class train rolls on sans abatement. According to Germany's Auto Motor und Sport, an S Coupe concept will go on display at this year's Frankfurt show. Expect the concept to differ from the production model in flashy trimmings only; the guts of the production beast will be there.
It's also reported that there's a good chance that the big personal luxury coupe will retain the CL nameplate used from 1996 in Europe and since the '98 model year stateside. Previous rumors had suggested that the new W222-platform-based two-door would use the S-Class Coupe moniker.
Expect engine choices to reflect the gutsier options available in the new four-door, which means that we'll likely only see twin-turbo V8 and V12 options here in the U.S. Check out Auto Motor und Sport's video of the camouflaged coupe below.
