It's a busy day over at Mercedes-Benz. In addition to taking the wraps off of the all-new 2014 S-Class sedan, the company's engineers have been spotted testing the rakish, two-door variant of the Mercedes flagship, which will ditch its CL-Class nomenclature in favor of a more precise S-Class Coupe moniker. (Remember, the coupe and convertible versions of the E-Class used to go by the name CLK.)

Now that we have all the details on the big S-Class sedan, we have a pretty good guess as to how all of that will work its way over to the two-door model. What we're most curious about, however, is how the new car will look when its swirly paper is removed. Up front, the fascia looks like a slightly redesigned version of what's found on the sedan, but it's around back where things get really interesting. Rather than using the vertical rear lighting elements of the four-door, the S-Class Coupe seems to be fitted with some slim, horizontal units. Color us intrigued.

Mercedes-Benz will initially launch the S-Class sedan with twin-turbo V8 power in both the S550 and S63 AMG, so we expect those same powerplants to make their way over to the coupe, as well. We'll know more when the two-door gets its official reveal in the not-too-distant future (Frankfurt Motor Show, perhaps?).

      I'm sure it will only come with the "SL" type grille with the large central star but I'd like it to have the option of the classic "radiator" grille, which on the new S Class is larger and more upright. I like the classic grille motif on everything but the actual 2-seat sports cars.

        I think it will follow the twin-bar grill that's appearing on most of the coupes/convertibles/roadsters now

      The CL was called the "S class coupe" back in the early 90s before Mercedes started to loose their mind. I'm glad they're bringing back the "S class coupe" name. It makes so much more sense.

        It actually was called SEC in the 80s & early 90s. Those were some bad azze looking cars.

        It was the late '90s that they had S on the back of the cars, but they were still officially called "CL".

          Almost. The W140 was called the s-class coupe for a while but at the end of its life cycle it did have CL lettering on the trunk.

      Maybe this will lower the price of existing CL's and I could score one of those....

      Yawn. Which one is this now? an SL? CL? CLS? CLS coupe? I can\'t keep track of Mercedes models anymore. And they look so tacky now. What happened to the Mercedes of the 80s and early 90s? Mercedes hasn\'t made a good looking S class since the W140 from the 90s.
