AUTO CENTRAL, UK -- July 30, 2014: The acclaimed S-Class Coupé is set to arrive in the UK in September – priced from £96,565 OTR.

The eight-cylinder S 63 AMG Coupé – priced at £125,595 OTR – generates a mighty 585 hp and 900 Nm of torque to provide effortless performance. For those wishing even more performance, the S 65 AMG Coupé – priced at £183,065 – produces 630 hp and develops 1000 Nm of torque.

One further engine - the S 500 Coupé AMG Line – will follow in early 2015 – priced from £96,565 OTR.

Across the range, Active Parking Assist with a reversing camera, an expansive panoramic roof, an ultra-sharp TFT 12.3” display, the clever Magic Vision Control system, COMAND Online and a choice of nine metallic paint options come as standard.

In addition, the S 63 AMG Coupé is equipped with the Seat Comfort Package, the spookily smooth Magic Body Control, and thumping Burmester surround sound system with 13 high-performance speakers. As if that wasn’t enough, the S 65 AMG Coupé adds a Head-up display, a TV Tuner, a 360 camera, and Night View Assist – capable of detecting hazards on the road ahead via an infrared camera.

The Premium Package (£4,995 when applied to the S 500) adds 20” alloy wheels, illuminated door sills, the Seat Comfort Pack, Keyless-Go Package, Burmester sound system, Climatised Seats to keep you cool or warm, depending on the weather, a 360 camera and Air Balance – a system through which air is passed to remove pollutants and fragranced with a choice of perfumes.

The AMG Exterior Carbon-fibre Package (£5,000) adds carbon-fibre elements to the outside of the car while the AMG Night Package (£765) offers the AMG sports exhaust system with two black chrome finished twin tailpipes, and high-gloss black highlights.

Further options include the Panoramic roof with MAGIC SKY CONTROL (£4,030), refrigerated compartment in the rear (£1,130), and brake calipers painted in red (£620 available on the S 63 AMG and S 65 AMG).

The equipment offered on the new S-Class Coupé combines to make it one of the most refined and comfortable cars on the road today. It’s the quietest series-production car of all in terms of wind noise with excellent aeroacoustic performance due to improved insulation and aerodynamic bodyshell.
