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.
