Rendered speculation: Mercedes-Benz SSC is a stylish four-door coupe

Article by Christian A., on September 25, 2013

Although Mercedes-Benz didn’t say that it is planning a four-door coupe based on the new S-Class, we do believe that it is time to think about it. Why? Because the design guru Theophilus Chin rendered this new model based on the S-Class Coupe Concept that was unveiled earlier this month at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA).

Mercedes-Benz already has a four-door coupe, the CLS, but with Bentley building its own four-door coupe we think that this would be a good point to start.

Theophilus Chin names its creation the SSC, paying a tribute to the iconic SSK roadster that was built between 1928 and 1932. Mercedes-Benz will offer a production version of the S-Class Coupe Concept in 2014, replacing the CL but what’s more interesting is that the German carmaker is also planning a convertible version of the new S-Class Coupe.

Pure sensuousness expressing contemporary luxury was the design team’s focus and is the Mercedes-Benz’s design philosophy. The objective is to design crisp shapes and sleek surfaces that highlight advanced tech while exuding emotional charm. The voluptuous clarity is implied in the essential design motif of heritage, sensation, and progressiveness. These comprise the guiding light, and they are emphasised in different ways contingent on the type.

Mercedes-Benz builds a connection between modernism and the unconventional, between convention and progressiveness. Each series has a determined role and a very distinct personality, which depend on the traits the design emphasises. And still, a Mercedes-Benz always is identifiable as a Mercedes-Benz. Along with incorporating new style improvements, and keeping alive its traditions, the design team draws from a pool of style features that are standard for the brand.

New S-Class Coupé is among the most gorgeous ever, characterising the most profound artistic departure from its forerunners. The continually sensual profile interplaying with the crisp, contemporary design idiom creates a perfect synergy and communicates our ideals of sensuous clarity with acute accuracy.

The exterior: perfectly proportioned continuous profile

The continuous profile of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupé embraces sensuous clarity in a contemporary way. It is exemplified by standard rear-wheel-drive dimensions, highlighted by the signature dropping outline of a Mercedes.
