Superb detailing on these exclusive models
If you want luxury but you're not a Mercedes-Maybach fan, here are two models in the Mercedes-Benz range that could tickle your millionaire ego
The fabulous S-Class Coupé and Cabriolet come into a special "Exclusive Edition" at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, especially for car collectors and those that want luxury at the highest level from the Stuttgart brand. Not quite at the Maybach-level, but close.
The Exclusive Edition comes as standard with the LED Intelligent Light System with Swarovski crystals as well as "Exclusive Edition" lettering on the cup holder cover in the center console. Customers can choose between aragonite silver and rubellite red for the exterior, matched to 19-inch multi-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels, which are painted in aragonite silver or in himalaya grey/thulium silver.
For the AMG Line, there are 20-inch multi-spoke light-alloy wheels painted in black with a high-sheen finish, while the cabriolet soft top is available in dark red or beige, depending on the paint finish.
Inside, Exclusive Edition's trim uses light brown high-gloss sen (an Asian hardwood). And now, prepare for an extremely long list of features: the cars come in standard with a professional Burmester surround sound system and the Exclusive package, which includes seats in designo exclusive Nappa leather in porcelain/titian red or porcelain/espresso brown with contrasting topstitching and piping. Nappa leather can be found almost everywhere: on the seat upholstery (in diamond design with placed perforations), on the front and rear center armrests, the top part of the instrument panel, and the door center panels.
The designo roof liner and sun visors are made of DINAMICA microfibre; the rear parcel shelf is clothed in ARTICO man-made leather; the door sills have illuminated Mercedes-Benz lettering as well as map pockets on driver/front passenger backrests (also in Nappa leather). In addition, there are special floor mats, with trimmed edges in either titian red or porcelain. The attention to detail is incredible.
Exclusive to both two-door models and also part of the standard equipment specification are innovative OLED tail lights. Of course, both cars benefit from extended driving assistance systems, the modern control and display concept with Widescreen Cockpit and the new generation of steering wheels as well as the ENERGIZING comfort control.
Under the hood sits the new V8 biturbo engine in the S 560 Coupé (combined fuel consumption 8.0 l/100 km, combined CO2 emissions 183 g/km) and S 560 Cabriolet (combined fuel consumption 8.7 l/100 km, combined CO2 emissions 199 g/km). Enough to love these pieces of automotive art. Just remember them, as you will certainly see these cars at collector's events in the next decades.
