We have known that Mercedes was preparing a coupe version for the next generation S-Class for quite some time now, but this is the first time we have actually caught the car out for a testing session. The car was spotted at a Mercedes facility, and as you can see, it is in a stage of camouflage that we normally never see on a Mercedes prototype.
With this kind of camouflage, Mercedes is trying to hide the stunning shape of the new car, but it is pretty clear the body will look wide and muscular. Also, you can see the rear lights are placed horizontally, giving the impression of an even wider body. When viewed from the side, the future S-Class looks a little like a Chevrolet Camaro, very powerful but still very timeless.
The next S-Class Coupe will share platform and drivetrains with the upcoming S-Class and will, of course, be stuffed with all the new technical features already announced for the S-Class.
Expect the new S-Class Coupe to be unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show and hit the market for the 2015 model year.
