Do you remember when the S-Class used to be offered in the coupe and convertible body styles? Of course you do, as it’s only been a few years since Mercedes left the luxury GT segment.
The two models were based on the W222 generation Mercedes S-Class, which was made from 2013 to 2020. The coupe was internally known as the C217 and the convertible the A217, and both came with rear- or all-wheel drive, depending on the selected trim level.
Speaking of the grades, these comprised the S 500, or the S 550 as it was known in the United States, which came with a bi-turbo 4.7-liter V8. Europeans also got a straight-six lump on the S 400 (S 450) as a base model. Two AMGs completed the offering, the S 63 and the S 65, and if you must know, the latter also brought a V12 with forced induction to the party, whereas the latter used a bi-turbo 5.5-liter V8, which was replaced by the ubiquitous 4.0L mill when the facelifted iteration debuted in 2017.
After the 2021 model year, Mercedes decided to ditch the two-door versions of the S-Class. The latest generation is only offered as a four-door, and those looking for coupes and convertibles can get the new SL roadster and, more recently, the CLE. The latter replaces the two-door versions of the old C-Class and E-Class and recently made its world debut, with the family expanding to comprise additional variants, including full-blown AMGs.
Now, the S-Class Coupe (and the Convertible) may be dead, but some of its owners are not willing to trade it for something newer. This is probably the story behind the pictured copy, which was recently visited by the tuning fairy. Mind you, there are no weird upgrades that could make some scream Mansory at the top of their lungs, as this car remains simple and elegant, with a sporty touch at the expense of comfort.
It was Cor.Speed that gave it those new wheels that measure 9.5×22 inches at the front and 10.5×22 inches at the rear. The concave set comes with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S tires measuring 255/30 and 295/35 at the front and rear, respectively, and it features a silver look that goes perfectly with the exterior finish of the car. Wider alloys are available as an alternative, with the company mentioning the 11.5×22-inch set. And that’s not all, as this S-Class Coupe also rides closer to the road thanks to a module added to the factory air suspension.
We think this look suits the two-door S-Class perfectly, and while it may be a bit stiffer than the stock one, it certainly is more elegant, too. But do you dig the spec, or would you keep yours simple?
