New Mercedes S-Class Coupe prices announced
Mercedes-Benz confirms its new S-Class Coupe will arrive in the UK this September, priced from £96,565
The new S-Class Coupe will arrive here in the UK this September, priced from £96,565 for the entry-level S500 AMG Line variant, and rising to at least £183,065 for S65 AMG models.
You’ll have to wait longer if you want to keep things under £100,000 though, as only the S63 and S65 are going to be available from launch, with the S500 following on in early 2015.
Kicking things off this year, the S63 AMG Coupe costs upwards of £124,715 and features a 577bhp 5.5-litre V8 borrowed from the saloon. Electronically limited to 155mpg, 0-62mph will take as little as 3.9 seconds, alongside up to 27.9mpg whilst emitting 237g/km CO2.
This is joined by the 6.0-litre twin-turbo V12 S65 AMG, which we revealed earlier this month is going to set buyers back £183,065. Boasting 621bhp and 1,000Nm of torque, in rear wheel guise it sees off 0-62mph in 4.1 seconds. The S500, by comparison, will offer 449bhp and 700Nm when it eventually arrives.
Whatever you opt for, standard kit includes Active Parking Assist – including a reversing camera – a 12.3-inch TFT display, COMAND Online, plus a panoramic roof, Mercedes’ Magic Vision Control system and a choice of nine metallic paint schemes.
Paying an extra £28,150 for the S63 AMG Coupe will see the German manufacturer throw in kit like the Seat Comfort Package, a 13-speaker surround sound system and Magic Body Control. This suspension system now reads the road ahead and tilts the individual struts to brace the car against cornering forces, keeping it flatter through bends.
In S65 guise, the S-Class Coupe gains a heads-up display and 360 degree cameras, too, alongside a TV Tuner and Night View Assist – tech capable of detecting hazards on the road ahead using an infrared camera.
Optional extras across the range come in the form a Panoramic roof with so-called Magic Sky Control (£4,030), a refrigerated rear compartment (£1,130), and the choice of £620 red brake callipers in S63 and S65 models.
For the S500, £4,995 will get you the Premium Package, which adds 20-inch alloys and illuminated doorsills, with in-car kit comfort and convenience boosted by the Seat Comfort Pack, an air-filtration system, the 360 camera and Keyless-Go.
Further styling add-ons include Mercedes' self-explanatory AMG Exterior Carbon-fibre Package (£5,000), and the AMG Night Package, which offers gloss black highlights and a black chrome-finished AMG sports exhaust system for £765.
