Here it is: all you’ve cherished so much in the S-Class, served upon an even higher level and, better still, disguised as a breathtaking coupé. The cabin exudes even more hand-made feel, immaculately crafted and pleasant to touch. We like the grace with which it moves, having dispensed with obesity of some earlier models and vain flashiness of the AMG kit. A subtle turbocharging of large but not overblown V8 makes it feel like a naturally-aspirated engine with at least one litre more capacity. Good job, MB – here’s a luxury car you’d really rather drive than be driven in.
