Looks like Mercedes-Benz has dropped the S-coupe on us ahead of its official debut scheduled at the Geneva Motor Show.

This is glorious. It’s almost unchanged from the concept car, which I showed here yesterday, after an official image leaked online. Unlike that photo, this car is wearing a far more traditional silver Mercedes-Benz paint job, and it’s still stunning.

Oh my.

Unfortunately, the big five spoke wheels from the concept car aren’t seen on this model, but what they’ve chosen still looks quite nice. Aside from that minor change, there doesn’t seem to be very much tweaking from the concept car, which was officially unveiled at Frankfurt in the fall of 2013. That’s good, because it’s gorgeous.

I GUESS I can live without the five spoke wheels.

Specs are saying that the 2015 S-Class coupe is 198 inches long, making it 8.5 inches shorter than its sedan counterpart. The touch pad, seen in the photos from Detroit, is going to be part of the interior design as well. The flat-bottomed 3-spoke steering wheel looks excellent and adds a sporty character to the interior of this luxurious coupe – as does the red leather interior. Thank goodness there’s still some COLOR left in the automotive interior world, because I for one am getting tired of all this black, gray, and fifty shades of tan.

Oh man. Just look at that red.

The S-Class coupe will have MB’s auto-darkening glass roof – dubbed “Magic Sky Control” as standard equipment, and it also will have a revised version of their well-known “Magic Body Control,” which tilts the car toward the inside of a curve in order to make the occupants feel as if the car is level in… shall we say… spirited driving conditions. Other options include 20 inch wheels, heated arm rests, and two optional high-end sound systems from Burmester, making the cabin of the S-Class coupe one of the nicest places to be.

Those seats are divine.

For early adopters, a limited run of “Edition 1″ cars will be sold to the public as well. Thus far, all we know is that there will be 47 Swarovsky crystals in each of the headlights on these models, but I’m sure more details will emerge in the coming weeks as the cars debut in Switzerland approaches.

This car is an S550 Coupe, which means, as predicted, that under the hood is a 4.7 liter V8 packing 449 horsepower and 516 lb. ft. of torque. It’s mated to a 7-speed automatic.

Now, if you will, just sit back and admire this thing. It’s downright beautiful.
