2015 Mercedes-Benz S 550 4Matic Coupe Review

Rebirth of the S-Class Coupe
by Mike Schlee

Mercedes-Benz is once again selling the S-Class Coupe. No longer will there be a separate CL-Class moniker for these immense sport-luxury vehicles.

Oh, and immense they are. The 197.9-inch-long S 550 4Matic Coupe is the third longest two-door on the market after the mammoth Rolls-Royce Phantom and Wraith Coupes.

Stuffed with virtually every automotive technology known to man as well as all-wheel drive and a twin-turbocharged V8, the S-Class Coupe tips the scales at an obese 4,707 lbs. But not to worry, the engine is up to motivating this big lug. Developing 449 HP and 516 lb-ft. of torque, the S 550 is good for a 0-60 MPH sprint of just 4.5 seconds. Top speed is limited to a suspiciously low 130 MPH which most likely has to do with tires rather than the engine itself. Plus, where in North America are you legally going to go 130 MPH anyway?

As I’ve found with the S 550 sedan, the turbocharged V8 engine has power in spades at nearly any speed. It feels more potent than the numbers suggest and paired to the standard seven-speed automatic, delivers acceptable responses to throttle inputs.
