2015 S-Class Coupe (C217) Has Swarovski Crystal Headlights

Remember the striking Mercedes-Benz Concept S-Class Coupe from the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, and more specific, its jewel-like headlights?

Well, it seems that the overall lines and proportions weren't the only parts that traveled almost unchanged from the concept to the production car, as the all-new S-Class Coupe (C217) comes with actual Swarovski crystals in its headlights as an option.

We kid you not, each of the optional LED Intelligent Light System headlights has no less than 47 tiny Swarovski crystals encrusted inside them, producing a mesmerizing glaze that will probably steal your soul when looked at directly.

Each flare-shaped daytime running lamp is formed via 17 angular crystals, while the turn indicator lamps are made out of 30 round-shaped crystals, together creating the look of a slightly-angry but angelic pair of eyes.

Just like its sedan brother, the new S-Class Coupe comes with all-round LED lighting in standard, but the LED Intelligent Light System is optional on the S 500/550, so you won't see any Swarovski crystals on the most “basic” model.
