Photo Release -- Panoramic Roof On The New Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe Will Offer Research Frontiers' SPD-SmartGlass Technology

FRANKFURT, Germany, Sept. 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FRANKFURT Auto Show – Amid a stage full of musicians, ballet dancers and acrobats, Mercedes-Benz unveiled their new S-Class Coupe concept with a large panoramic roof that will offer Research Frontiers' patented SPD-SmartGlass technology when the production version of the car appears in showrooms next year. Citing their trademark for this innovative feature, Mercedes-Benz's multimedia presentation of their new S-Class Coupe noted: "For those magic moments - MAGIC BODY and MAGIC SKY CONTROL."

There will be six variants of the new S-Class, and the S-Class Coupe concept made its debut today at the Frankfurt Auto Show to a standing-room only exhibition hall filled with members of the international automotive and lifestyle press. The MAGIC SKY CONTROL panoramic glass roof on the S-Class Coupe will be the largest SPD-SmartGlass roof put into serial production to date, measuring approximately 1.3 square meters (14 square feet). The MAGIC SKY CONTROL feature uses patented SPD-SmartGlass technology developed by Research Frontiers Inc. (Nasdaq:REFR) to turn the roof transparent by electrically aligning tiny particles within its glass. With the touch of a button, drivers and passengers can instantly change the tint of their roof to help keep out harsh sunlight and heat, and create an open-air feeling even when the sunroof is closed. Glass or plastic using Research Frontiers' patented SPD-SmartGlass technology effectively blocks UV and infrared rays in either mode, helping keep the cabin cooler, and protecting passengers and interiors.
