The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the flagship car of one of the world's most storied luxury automakers. Mercedes-Benz has now been manufacturing cars for more than 100 years, and the S-Class is what the company has arrived at. It offers a state-of-the-art luxury interior, the handling and acceleration of a sports car and prestige like almost nothing else.

The  S-Class is the flagship luxury sedan from Mercedes Benz. It is its largest, highest-performance, most luxurious model. It is very powerful, its interior is opulent and it features every technology the automotive industry can imagine.

The S-class has been redesigned for the 2007 model year and emerges as a larger car with a raft of safety features and a new V-8 engine.

The car is equipped with safety features that include Mercedes-Benz's Pre-Safe system, which can tighten the front seat belts, close the sunroof and side windows, and adjust passenger seats for optimal safety when a collision is unavoidable. This vehicle is also equipped with an infrared night vision system that projects a black-and-white video image of the road ahead onto a display in the instrument cluster.


The 2008 S-Class' exterior shape doesn't stray far from the previous generation's conservative look, but it does feature pronounced fender flares that resemble those of the automaker's recently redesigned M-Class sport utility vehicle. The door bump strips have been removed, leaving the sheet metal smooth and uncluttered, and the headlight assemblies are more angular than those of prior models. The sedan's trunklid calls to mind the BMW 7 Series.

The redesigned S-Class is larger than its predecessor. Exterior length is up 1.7 inches, it's almost an inch wider and its wheelbase is more than 3 inches longer. The enlarged dimensions translate to more space for occupants and cargo.


Chrome and wood accents adorn the inside of the S-Class. As opposed to a console-located gearshift, the driver selects Park, Drive and Reverse via a stalk on the right side of the steering column. Drivers who wish to manually control the automatic transmission can do so with shift buttons located on the back of the steering wheel.

The S-Class' new COMAND system features an 8-inch screen high on the center stack that can be operated via a control knob on the center console. At first glance, it appears much like Audi's Multi Media Interface or BMW's iDrive. The stereo, navigation system and climate control system can also be operated with traditional buttons. This vehicle is also equipped with four-stage massaging seats!!

Under the Hood

Now, AMG, the German carmaker's in-house tuner division, turned that car into a performance masterpiece. The 2008 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG is a big, fast European sedan, the kind of car that makes you feel you should be bombing through the Alps on urgent business in Switzerland. As we drove the car during our test, we found ourselves glancing in the rear-view mirror, looking for the diplomats, or spies, who we knew belonged in the capacious back seat.

But the car wouldn't let us glance back for long, as there is too much to pay attention to out in front. The S63 doesn't go slow. On a pleasant cruise down a country road we were surprised to find that what seemed like 45 mph was actually 75 mph, and climbing toward 80. Then there are the electronics, from a lovely navigation display to a stereo system with brain-frying audio quality, which demanded our attention, as well. Oh, and did we mention the massage seats? Yes, the 2008 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG gets everything, absolutely everything, thrown into it, making it almost perfect. Almost.
