The modern day heir to the "Grosser" Benz title, the company's flagship W222 S-Class sedan that was recently unveiled to the world, will receive it's commensurate 2-door variation in short order.
Spy shots have revealed a stunning low slung coupe that seems to share not only the elegant lines of it's stablemate, but appears to one-up the already sumptuous cruiser with even more refined styling in line with tradition for the top-tier gentleman's express. Insiders expect the coupe, formerly badged as the "CL", to come in a variety of flavors to match the sedan to include a twin-turbo V8 in both S550 and S63 guise. While not officially verified by Mercedes-Benz at the corporate level, rumors persist that the new range-topping cars could not only replace the slow-selling and dated Maybach range, but also potentially incorporate cabriolet drop-top versions of both the 2 and 4-door cars.
