Sister car to the recently revealed S-class sedan, the S-class coupe rides on a revised CL platform and, like the four-door, plans call for the choice of either rear-wheel drive or optional 4Matic four-wheel drive. The car is a little lower and shorter than the current CL. Among the more significant stylistic developments is Mercedes-Benz's so-called soft nose grille -- seen on many recent Benzes. In combination with sleeker headlamps, the Concept S-class Coupe has a more aggressive appearance than the outgoing CL. The front fenders are more shapely, there's a more heavily raked windscreen, and there are long frameless doors. You'll also notice the dropping line along the sides, a shallower glasshouse and a side window graphic with an upswing toward the rear. The rear is dominated by muscular haunches over the rear wheel arches, an oval shaped rear window, high trunk lid, horizontally positioned taillamps and fluted trapezoidal-shaped tail pipes.
