Some of the design’s key features includes a Pre-Safe preventive occupant protection system, full LED headlamps, magic body control: the first suspension system with the ability to ‘look ahead’, unparalleled interiors that symbolize the highest standards in modern luxury amongst other unique features that make the S‑Class Coupé the world’s quietest series-production car in terms of wind noise.

Extremely low wind noise was a declared objective when developing the S‑Class Coupé. The aero acoustics experts implemented form optimization measures as early as the design phase. Furthermore, the body shell and door-sealing concept were configured to reduce wind noise. With success: the S‑Class Coupé is the world’s quietest series-production car in terms of wind noise, as proven by measurements taken in the wind tunnel using an artificial head to simulate the driver’s ear and test drives with specially trained test people. To assess a car’s aero acoustics, Mercedes-Benz uses its own aero acoustics index that has proven successful in numerous tests. In addition to the sound level in the interior, psychoacoustic variables such as sound sharpness and articulation quality are taken into account.

The full-LED headlamps with their iconic eyebrows as daytime running lamps lend it an extremely self-assured and distinctive gaze. On the S-Class Coupé the eyebrows have been further refined with a semicircular counter-curve. In combination with the standard LED Intelligent Light System, unique headlamps with no less than 47 Swarovski crystals are available. 17 angular crystals form the flare-shaped daytime running lamps, with 30 round-shaped crystals making up the turn indicator lamps.

The New 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe will be available in its two versions at the Nasser Bin Khaled Mercedes-Benz showroom located at Salwa Road.
