The flagship automobile of the Mercedes-Benz fleet being the source of most of what is regared as today\'s standard vehicle features. These have included: Hydrophneumatic suspension, Anti-Lock Braking System, Traction Control, Satellite Navigation as well many more features. In recent years, their limelight has been stolen by the BMW 7 Series and, to a lesser extent, the Audi A8. Most noteably... the BMW 7 Series contained more features yet was considered more powerful and better at handling, in addition to weighing significantly lighter than the S-Class. Shamefully, in an attempt to gain popularity seen only in the 1991 S-Class, Mercedes decided to copy most of the attributes of BMW\'s automobiles. These included the knock-off version of the iDrive, the flared wheel arches, the reduction in chrome highlights, and the bootlid (trunk) which very poorly hides the very Significant resemblence to the BMW made \"bangle-butt\"...
Person 1: \"Check out my new Mercedes-Benz S-Class\"
Person 2: \"Yeah, weighs more than South Africa, with the power of a pencil sharpner... must handle like a shopping trolley\"
Person 1: \"Well its a Mercedes, so there\"
Person 2: \"Yeah, tell me when you need to replace any body panels when the fall off, I can hook you up\"
Person 1: \"But have a look at it... it is so beautiful\"
Person 2: \"Yeah those wheel arches - Mazda RX-8, short wheel over hangs AND the lack of chrome highlights AND the short roofline AND the antenna AND THE BOOOT ARE ALL FROM BMW YOU SAD SAD LOSER!\"
Person 3: \"Thank god for insurance\" - (sets car on fire)
Basically means extremely powerful, dangerous, high leveled, or possibly even feared. It's used as a rank to describe the highest you can possibly achieve. It's pretty commonly used in anime.
That guy that escaped from jail is ranked as an S-Class criminal.

Mercedes large sized sedan. Starts at $74,970 for a BASE S430, goes up to $123,620 BASE for a S600 (V12, 493hp @5000 rpms). Hardly the "poor man's" of anything. Also it is not a cheap version of a Maybach, there is a Maybach dealer across the street from the Mercedes dealer in my town and they are completly different cars, however the Maybach does have a S-Class styled air-dam. Maybach's start at around $300,000 anyway.
S500 4 Matic
The S55 ////AMG would OWN the Audi S8 in a race anyday of the week kid.
The man driving the S8 felt like a rat when the S600 V12 drove by at 180 mph.
Dude! I raised my chocobo to S-Class, so I could breed a Gold Chocobo!

The S-Class is a poor man's Maybach
