It offered a passenger cabin with a fixed shape… Continue Reading »

To succeed in such a function, expect this upcoming S-Class coupe to have entire cows donating their hides to the interior, with high-end wood finishes to add to the veneer of luxury and exclusivity that this vehicle brings. Based on the new S-Class platform, the coupe will make extensive use of aluminum structures, portions of which will be recycled and recyclable. We can expect… Continue Reading »
