Joie de vivre, on demand: The sexy, sweeping silhouette of this C216 pillarless coupe pairs perfectly with the Periclase paintwork, providing performance, power and precision sans pretense. The luxurious cabin swells to a symphony of handsome materials with stitching as surgically precise as the steering and grip at Autobahn speeds. We could wax romantic for days about the effortless elegance and beastly beauty of this gorgeously muscular grand touring grin-maker, but there’s much more to this example than just a pretty face. As many enthusiasts and drivers have noted of late, low-mile, well-kept W221 S-Class sedans appear to be primely placed in the sweet spot of depreciation, relevant useable tech, performance and reliability. Thereto, it follows, that its door-deprived brethren – the C216 – provides all the same Hegelian desirability while making your heart flutter at its façade, and delivering a dopamine drip under your right foot. To quoth the Scorsesean bard: “Buy this thing and you’ll be upper-class by about Tuesday…”
