My disappointment was immeasurable when I heard Mercedes-Benz gave the axe to the S-Class couple following the production of the C217 that wrapped up in 2020. Hard to believe there would be no S-Class coupe after it existed in one way or another beginning way back in 1937. One would think it would make a perfect candidate to be fully electric the same way Rolls-Royce is going with their new Rolls-Royce Spectre set to hit roads for the 2024 model year, but I guess not. So if you want the last S-Class coupe, here you go.
Today’s car, a S560 up for sale in Portland, Oregon is as classic as it comes. Black over black leather. It’s a pure grand tourer for 365 days a year thanks to 4MATIC all-wheel drive and still can play in the big leagues with the Bentley Continental GT and the Rolls-Royce Wraith. I want one.
I’ve seen some pretty bizarre stuff, but this one might take it.
This is a 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S wearing a black vinyl wrap and an interior that began life as black leather and has been transformed into something I don’t even like. Why people do this and think it’s a good idea is beyond me. Why people do this and think it actually adds value to a car is living on another planet. I’m ready to throw my hands up on this one.
I have to give it to Mercedes, they milked as much as they could from the C190 AMG GT chassis. Launched for the 2015 model year, the lineup includes the GT, GT S, GT C, GT R, GT R Pro, GT and GT C Roadster, GT Black Series, and the track-only GT Track Series. Missing from that list is today’s car, the GT R Roadster. Production was limited to just 750 units – probably because they wanted people to just go buy the SL63 AMG.
