Frankfurt motor show: the concepts
Decipher the new cars from Frankfurt with TG’s exclusive totaliser! How many will actually happen?

Mercedes-Benz S-class coupe
This is a weak Frankfurt show for new production cars. Apart from the Porsche 918 Spyder and BMW i3, the only German production car that hadn't been unveiled to the public before was the Audi A3 Cabrio. The rest were only new powertrains or facelifts. So as a nearly-production car, the S-class Coupe Concept, has a lot of attention. It's the replacement for the CL, dressed up with a bit of aluminium tinsel around the cabin. There'll be a convertible version later.
