Spyshots: Mercedes S-Class Coupe Getting Ready to Replace the CL

Our spy photographer from Northern Sweden has just sent us some fresh photos that got us very excited. The only thing we could do is share our excitement with you guys, so here it is, the new S-Class Coupe.

The reason we like this car so much is that it looks like the ultimate big coupe for serious people. Thanks to a much lower roofline, the proportions of the S-Class are much sportier than the CL-Class without it trying to hard.

Since the photos are so crisp and were taken up close, we can see the S-Class Coupe has a single-bar grille holding the large emblem, which looks very sporty. It also seems to have LED accent lights arranged in a curved pattern at the very top of the headlights. Fortunately for the rich customers tired of classless modern cars, this does't appear to have a huge bar of LED in the lower bumper of a pointy chin spoiler.

The new S-Class has been deemed the most important car for Mercedes Benz, especially since it will change for being a single saloon to a whole host of models.

The 2014 S Class looks to be slightly longer than the outgoing model, but because of its lightweight chassis it will be more fuel efficient and better for the environment. Mercedes has also prioritized the development of a plug-in hybrid drivetrain which should be available on the sedan from launch.

The W222 series S-Class will benefit from a range of new or updated engines, like the turbocharged 3-liter producing 333 PS in the S400 and more powerful versions of both the twin-turbo V8 and V12 engines.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
