Standard AIRMATIC® air suspension balances calm, composed comfort with taut, tenacious handling. It can also adapt its firmess and ride height for changing loads, challenging roads, and driver-selectable modes.
The heart of the new S 560 Coupe is its direct-injected 463-hp 4.0L biturbo V8. Its twin turbos are nested in the "hot V" of the engine, to rush-deliver its 516-lb-ft of torque and bring you to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds.
A pair of turbos nests inside the "V" of the engine, to send their compressed charge from each turbo to its bank of cylinders via an extremely short path, with near-zero pressure loss or turbo lag. Large, twin-scroll turbos further boost performance and responsiveness, with parallel flow and dual exhaust ducts to optimize cylinder charging and scavenging. The setup is also highly efficient, with liquid-cooled intercoolers and close-mounted catalysts that reach peak efficiency in seconds.
In addition to being configured as a true dual exhaust, dual-position internal flaps pneumatically open and close based on engine rpm and the selected driving mode. Changing the path of the exhaust through the rear mufflers emits a fuller, sportier sound, celebrating the engine's power and elevating the driver's enthusiasm. In the Sport mode, the changeover occurs at lower rpm. And at startup, the system unleashes a growl from the engine that's sure to inspire a grin from the driver.
Bold and muscular yet flowing, the sporty standard lower bodywork looks as if was sculpted as much in the gym as in the wind tunnel. Large mesh air intakes underscore the wide, slatted grille with its integrated Star. Chrome details add subtle highlights to the car's athletic shape.
Crisp, bold and sporty 17-inch alloy wheels feature five sets of thin spokes with a shimmering machined finish and grey-painted inlays. They're outfitted with all-season Extended Mobility tires.(Models with Extended Mobility tires are not provided with a spare tire.)
Offering both front- and rear-seat passengers sweeping skyward views, this fully functional glass sunroof features a front panel that can either tilt up for ventilation or slide over the rear panel for an open-air feeling. Dual interior power shades with controls allow the driver and each rear passenger to adjust the amount of sunlight entering the cabin.
Superlatively soft, smooth-grain Nappa leather is hand-fitted to the seating surfaces and head restraints. Horizontally stitched fluting of the center seat section adds stylish detail.
Heated and ventilated seats are a luxury you'll soon consider a necessity. Three levels of heating and cooling ventilation are offered. By gently circulating air through perforations in the seat and backrest, ventilated seats help keep you cooler and your clothes drier during warmer months. Reversible fans help draw heat away for brief periods. On cold or damp days, using both the ventilation and heating together can circulate the seat heating more quickly, to help keep you warm and dry.
In addition to the 12.3-inch central display, a second 12.3-inch screen is placed directly in front of the driver and seamlessly integrated within the same sleek panel. Its customizable displays include instrumentation and a large multifunction menu screen with illustrated and animated menus for vehicle information, settings and driver-assistance features. A number of instrumentation styles can be selected, featuring a variety of analog-style, digital and graphical readouts.
One of the most respected makers of handcrafted high-end home audio, Germany's Burmester® has developed a surround-sound system not only tailored to the S-Class, but worthy of it. With 13 high-quality speakers and a 590-watt 9-channel digital amplifier, the system fills the cabin with pure digital surround sound while seamlessly compensating for ambient noise. Exquisitely detailed aluminum speaker grilles are as rewarding to the eyes as the system's output is to the most discerning ears.
