Its striking front section impressively signals the sporting pre‑eminence of the new S‑Class Coupé. The three‑dimensional Mercedes-Benz grille with the Mercedes-Benz star and single louvre is the centrepiece. It is flanked by the clearly defined LED High Performance headlamps of the standard‑specification LED Intelligent Light System, optionally featuring Swarovski crystals.
With two powerdomes and clearly modelled lines, the bonnet also sets powerful accents. The striking front bumper features large air intakes in the centre and at the sides. A dynamic chrome wing in the lower section round off the bumper.
The side design displays the exciting, dynamic, silhouette of a large sporty coupé. Its low greenhouse, high waistline and frameless doors all bear witness to its classic exclusivity. The interplay of falling and rising character lines produces an air of lightness and forward thrust even when the vehicle is standing still.
The rear section combines sports and style definitively. Lateral tapering, muscular rear wings, and a chrome brace all underscore its width. The two‑part LED tail lamps and the rear bumper with diffuser and two visible tailpipe trim elements underscore the vehicle's exclusivity and sportiness.
Capable of 0 to 62 mph in just 4.6 seconds, the S 500 AMG Line is astonishingly sharp and dynamic when you want it to be. But it’s an accomplished luxury cruiser too, able to clock up mile after effortless mile with consummate ease.
Powerful and athletic, it’s equipped with a muscular bi‑turbo V8 engine producing 455 hp and 700 Nm of torque. This is paired with the latest 9G‑TRONIC 9‑speed automatic transmission, which delivers short shift and response times for exceptional driving agility.
It also boasts a wide gear ratio spread that helps reduce engine speeds and increase efficiency. As a result, the S 500 AMG Line can achieve up to 33.2 mpg combined and emits as little as 197 g/km of CO2.
An optional equipment package made up of a perfectly coordinated cluster of safety and assistance systems: this helps to take the strain off the driver, to reduce any risk of accident and to improve protection for the car’s occupants as well as for other road users. Brake Assist BAS PLUS with Cross‑Traffic Assist and PRE‑SAFE® Brake with pedestrian detection can reduce the risk of accidents at junctions, rear‑end collisions and collisions with pedestrians, particularly in urban traffic.
Active Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist provide assistance if the vehicle leaves its lane unintentionally or during lane changes if there is a danger of collision with other vehicles. They can use one‑sided brake actuation to help return the vehicle to its lane or to prevent an accident. PRE‑SAFE® PLUS, finally, expands the PRE‑SAFE® preventive occupant protection system to include protective measures in the event of an imminent rear impact. DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist and Stop&Go Pilot assists the driver with keeping a safe distance from the vehicle in front and also with staying in the centre of the lane – so ensuring a high level of stress‑relieving comfort, particularly over long distances or in stop‑and‑go traffic.
