The Mercedes Benz S-Class is the reason why this class of cars exists. What do you need to know before you buy an S-Class? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in the Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
Hello everybody and welcome to Letters to Doug, everyone’s favorite weekly column that involves writing letters to Doug.
After once more falling into complete obsession with a car from the 1970s, I wondered what car I would want from today. Then I drove past a brand new S Class Coupe.
This W140 S-Class has been dubbed the S666 by its owners, and I think that's a worthy title.
I'm not sure how this 2000s S-Class owner got into this position. I don't really want to know. I can tell you that it's now clear to me that the big Merc can handle some dirt if the driver's determined enough.
It's not enough that the back seats of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class have their own tweeters. It's that those tweeters extend out towards the chauffeur-driven passengers "in a spiral motion."
While I was reading Patrick George's excellent writeup on driving two classic V8 luxury barges, I had a bit of a revelation: a Mercedes W126 and a Miata would make the perfect two car garage for under $10k.
Word on the street is that Mercedes is about to release two new versions of its top-of-the-line S-class, both a Maybach, and a Pullman. And when you buy a new super-ultra-luxo-barge for the first time, I know you all have one question. What's its time around the Nürburgring?
As some of you may know, I am generally fond of the W220 Mercedes, and this car is a prime example why it's such an insane value for money. 604 HP, 738 ft-lbs of torque, and a realistic 0-60 time in under 4 seconds, bone stock. Ladies and gentlemen, this is why depreciation is a very, very good thing.
The Mercedes S-Class is an amazing technological achievement, but thanks to regulations, it can't be considered autonomous. But this simple hack changes all of that.
There are some people with discerning tastes and deep, deep pockets who don't just want a little bit of luxury, they want all the luxury. They need 21 feet of luxury. They need $1 million worth of luxury. And the Mercedes S-Class Pullman aims to satisfy their needs.
Hey, not all autonomous cars have to be koala-like pods with faces that vaguely resemble clowns who want to eat you! Some of them roll in the utmost luxury and style. And you don't get more stylish and luxury-ish than the Mercedes S Class.
When we had to sum up the V8-powered S 63 AMG, we famously went 'GHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!' So what could I possibly say about the S 65 AMG, the V12 version with 630 horsepower and 738 pound feet of torque? It's the most luxurious missile you've ever seen.
This is what you see if you sit on the rear left seat of a 2014 Mercedes S-Class. The best thing about it? A clever table. One you can actually use for work while on the move.
This is the new promotional video (and outstanding illustrations) for the 2014 Mercedes S-Class and it all makes no sense. But that's okay. Here's why.
There is a prominent rumor that despite its new internal code, the 2014 Mercedes S-Class is built on the same architecture as the old model. How similar do they look, though?
Ever since the Maybach debuted, the Mercedes S-Class has slightly lacked in top-of-the-line prestige at Daimler-Benz. Judging by these interior shots of the new 2014 W222 S-Class, it looks like that’s finally changed. Now it's more like the hi-tech interior of a private jet, just as it should be.
Your grandpa's plain-Jane W221 Mercedes-Benz S600 is his pride and joy. Ask him to borrow it, then show up with Speedriven's 695 hp kit installed. Imagine the joy on his weathered face when he finally smokes ol' Chester's Black Series.
