Mercedes-Benz is making its top-of-the-line S-Class coupe and convertibles even more luxe by planning to unveil Exclusive Editions at the Geneva Motor Show. They'll go on sale at the beginning of April and be available with almost any S-Class V8 or V12 engine.
The Exclusive Edition comes with a choice of aragonite silver or rubellite red paint finishes, with the soft top on the cabriolet available in dark red or beige, depending on the paint finish. Standard features include LED Intelligent Light System with Swarovski crystals and "Exclusive Edition" lettering on the center console cup holder cover. There's also 19-inch light-alloy wheels painted in either aragonite silver or himalaya grey with thulium silver, while the AMG line comes with the option of 20-inch multi-spoke light-alloy wheels painted in black with a high-sheen finish.
Interior trim is done in light brown high-gloss sen, an Asian hardwood, and nappa leather in the seats, front and rear center armrests, instrument panel, door center panels and map pockets on driver and front passenger backrests, and contrasting topstitching galore. It also gets a Burmester surround-sound system, diamond-shaped perforated seat upholstery, microfiber roof liner and sun visors, door sills with illuminated MB lettering and special floor mats with edges trimmed in either titian red or porcelain.
Mercedes-Benz announced a mid-cycle refresh last fall that included new OLED taillights on its two-door models, plus common-to-the-sedan features like new semiautonomous driver-assist features, 12-inch Widescreen Cockpit dash and infotainment system and the Energizing Comfort system for lights, massage, ventilation and atomizing cabin odorizer. Pricing on the Exclusive Edition wasn't announced, but expect it to climb north of the 2017 Cabriolet's $131,400 starting MSRP.
