Icon – Mercedes-Benz Concept Style Coupe

The house of Benz shows off its new design direction ahead of the Beijing Auto Show

Another concept from Mercedes? What makes this special?

Apart from the I, Robot looking design the Mercedes-Benz Concept Style Coupé is packing some technical treats. In fact Mercedes is saying this will be the car all other makes shall model their executive coupés on in future – a bold claim. But with headlamps that include successive indicators, a four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine dealing out 211BHP, and 4MATIC all-wheel drive, we can see where the confidence comes from.

It looks great, is it the same inside?

What, you want more than the turbine-design 21in wheels, and those indicators, with individual points of light which illuminate in succession? You’ve got it. Inside is headed by a large carbon-fibre trim panel, glazed for a look intended to drop jaws. There are even A-Class Sports based seats, that are electroplated to give the impression of light, when internal car illumination is on.

Wow, when will more be revealed?


Merc is going to unveil the 2.0 litre beauty at the Beijing Auto Show later this month. Check back for more pictures and word on pricing if and when sale of this slice of the future lands.
