The world has been waiting for the 2015 S-Class Coupe for quite a while. And now that it’s finally here, it’s hard to pay attention to it…as a whole. Mercedes-Benz can blame its own active curve tilting function. “The vehicle leans into bends much like a motorcyclist, thereby reducing the lateral acceleration acting on the […]
