Mercedes-Benz is stepping out at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit with a Night Edition of its S-Class Coupe.
The 2-door model is immediately identified with distinctive high-gloss black exterior cues, including the unique 1-louvre grille emblazoned with a large 3-pointed star, 20-inch AMG light-alloy wheels, side mirror housings, and inserts in the side sills.
The body is finished in selenite grey magno paint, with prominent AMG body add-ons such as the front and rear aprons. Night Edition badges are set into the front fenders, aft of the wheel wells.
Power comes from the 4.7-litre biturbo V-8, putting out 449 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque between 1800 and 3500 rpm. Controlled by the 9-speed G-Tronic sequentially shiftable automatic, it reportedly goes from 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds, which isn’t bad for a car weighing in at over two tonnes.
The Night Edition script is also engraved into the nappa leather AMG sports steering wheel. The interior comes in three levels of leather — standard, nappa and AMG nappa — in black, or duo-tone crystal grey/black, saddle brown/black or red/black. Natural wood trim is a high-gloss black poplar.
The Night Edition S-Class Coupe will be available for order on January 9, 2017, with deliveries early in spring.
