Main highlight of the new Mercedes Class S Coupe is the Magic Body Control, the first “suspension with eyes”.
The Coupé leans into bends in a manner similar to a motorcyclist or skier. The lateral acceleration acting upon occupants is reduced and passengers sit more firmly.
Depending on the curve driven, the curve tilting function shifts the base point of each individual strut. This allows the vehicle to incline automatically and continuously in fractions of a second and to angles of up to 2.5 degrees in – depending on the road angle and vehicle speed. The innovative suspension system detects curves using both a stereo camera behind the windscreen and an additional transversal acceleration sensor.
Optionally available on the new Mercedes S Class Coupe are expressive headlamps, each featuring 47 Swarovski crystals, produce a uniquely striking appearance.
