The car's matte Selenite Grey Mango paint job makes its bevy of black accents stand out—including a gloss black single-louver grille, mirrors, door sills and 20-inch AMG wheels.

In any configuration, the S-Class Coupe Night Edition's top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph. If Mercedes is willing to pre-announce hot properties like the Night Edition, we can't wait to see the introductions they are saving for the Detroit.
