Pure glamour.

Style, luxury
and elegance.

The relaxed atmosphere, the glamorous charm and the easy-going Mediterranean attitude attract sun-lovers, revellers and the international jet set to Ibiza every year. The Balearic island has made a name for itself above all with its luxurious offerings for holiday-makers. The ports of the capital, Ibiza

Town, Marina Botafoch and Ibiza Nueva are regular stops for luxury yachts and the high society on board. An exploratory trip from here into the island's picturesque interior in the new S-Class Coupé from Mercedes-Benz is a good way to learn more about Ibizan culture.

Two towering personalities. The S-Class Coupé in front of the Iglesia de Es Cubells in Sant Josep de sa Talaia in Ibiza.

Architectural specialities.

14 kilometres along the road in Sant Josep de sa Talaia, the imposing Iglesia de Es Cubells boasts a spectacular location high up on the cliffs of Es Cubells, offering visitors a breath-taking view across the sea to Formentera. The island's signature plain architecture and the church's colours provide a perfect backdrop for the S-Class Coupé with its similarly elegant and clear design idiom. The sensuous character of the S-Class Coupé is derived from its flowing profile and its convex and concave surfaces. Its typical rear-wheel-drive proportions are further emphasised by the dropping line. The long bonnet with pronounced lines and powerdomes, the low greenhouse with high beltline, the accentuated wheel arches and the large

wheels underscore the S-Class Coupé's standing as a masterpiece of automotive refinement and encapsulate the feeling of modern luxury.

The interior of the new S-Class Coupé is a perfect delight.

Modern luxury in every detail.

The S-Class Coupé cuts a fine figure on the inside, too. It is a perfect embodiment of luxury and style coupled with sporty elegance. The combination of sculptural components with the clear geometry of the basic architecture is a manifestation of an avant-garde design idiom. High-class appearance, supreme hand-crafted quality and exceptional touch and feel appeal to all the senses. The use of the finest materials, surfaces, colour combinations and seam designs contributes towards achieving a truly exclusive car interior. New interior colours such as Bengal red, saddle brown and porcelain allow individualisation of the interior. The S-Class Coupé comes as standard with a panoramic roof which covers two thirds of the overall roof

area, ensuring magical views of the star-lit skies over Ibiza. The standard-fit ambient lighting featuring seven different light moods is an additional feel-good factor in the vehicle's interior.

Turning night into day.

The S-Class Coupé also fits the part perfectly when it comes to taking in the sights and sounds of Ibizan evenings. The Spanish island is renowned for its vibrant nightlife. When the sun finally dips into the sea, the Balearic island is transformed into a paradise for nighthawks. Bright lights glitter over Ibiza Town, atmospheric sounds drift out of relaxed beach bars such as the Blue Marlin Ibiza at Cala Jondal Beach and powerful beats from S-Class Coupé's optional Burmester® high-end 3D surround sound system set the mood for a long night in the island's exclusive club scene. Ibiza is the place for partying it up big time – at the world's biggest club, the Privilege, or at the Pacha, the celebrity hotspot among the island's discotheques.

With the aid of the curve inclination function, the S-Class Coupé leans gracefully into bends. This top-notch feature comes into its own on Ibiza's winding panoramic roads.

The ultimate in driving comfort and ride quality.

Away from the pulsating nightlife, there is another side to Ibiza which really should not be missed. Ibiza's diverse beauty becomes apparent on the road to the east of the island: the picturesque panoramic road Carrer des Munt Kilimanjaro passes through olive groves and idyllic pine forests before winding its way around sandstone-coloured cliffs to reveal breath-taking views of the island's azure-blue bays. The S-Class Coupé comes into its own on this winding stretch: in addition to Active Body Control and ROAD SURFACE SCAN, the optionally available MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension system also includes the new curve inclination function. This allows the vehicle to lean automatically into bends similarly to a motorcycle up to an angle of 2.65 degrees in fractions of a

second, depending on the road camber and the speed of travel. This reduces the lateral acceleration acting on the occupants and the passengers sit more firmly in their seats.

The trip with the S-Class Coupé along Ibiza's country roads proves a delight for all the senses.

Powerhouse with a sporty sound.

The traditional hippy markets have been an intrinsic part of Ibiza's culture since the 1970s, and a visit to the most authentic of all such markets, Punta Arabí street market in the holiday destination of Es Canar, is an absolute must. The journey to the market along the east coast turns out to be a true delight for all the senses. The S 500 Coupé is powered by a V8 biturbo engine that generates 335 kW/455 hp from a displacement of 4.7 litres and maximum torque of 700 Newton metres. The emotive sound of the exhaust system makes a decisive contribution to the sporty driving experience. Low-frequency components provide a richer, sportier sound that gets under the skin and turns the trip through the Balearic island's searing hot hinterland into an unforgettable experience.
