2018 Mercedes S-Class Coupe And Cabriolet Will Debut At Frankfurt

2017 Frankfurt Motor Show

The Project One won't be the only new Mercedes debuting at the Frankfurt Auto Show.

Earlier this year, Mercedes lifted the wraps off the new 2018 S-Class luxury sedan set to rival the BMW 7 Series and the new recently revealed Audi A8. Customer deliveries are scheduled to start soon, but don’t think that the luxury automaker has forgotten about its two-door siblings. Mercedes has revealed that we can expect to see both the 2018 S-Class coupe and cabriolet to debut at this year’s Frankfurt Auto Show in September before launching later this year.

Like the S-Class sedan, we’re expecting to see subtle design changes, including a sculpted front end and new wheels.You can also expect to see the same range of powertrain options introduced in the facelifted S-Class sedan, too. This includes the new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 powering the S560 and AMG S63 models capable of producing 463-hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. It’s unclear if the entry-level 3.0-liter V6 in the S450 will be offered, but chances are we can expect to see the V12-powered S600 and AMG S65 models in coupe or cabriolet form. The 2018 Mercedes S-Class is more than just a minor facelift, however.

The flagship luxury sedan introduced a suite of new semi-autonomous driving assists, such as Active Steer Assist, Active Lane Change Assist, and Active Emergency Stop Assist, which should all be carried over in the S-Class coupe and cabriolet. Like the Audi A8 and BMW 7-Series, it also has a Remote Parking Assist. Of course, the reveal of the S-Class coupe and cabriolet will be completely overshadowed by the world debut of the much-anticipated Project One hypercar.
