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)

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.

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.

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is iconic. It is the blueprint for all other luxury sedans, a technological tour de force, and has been the undisputed queen of the segment since it was officially introduced in the 1970s. What do Prince William, Jay-Z, Beyoncé, and Kim Jong-Un have in common? They've all been chauffeured around in the S-class at some point. S-classes can be found on nearly every street corner in cities like New York, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Paris, and they make up a good portion of the $100K+ market in the US along with other status-mobiles like the Land Rover Range Rover and Tesla Model S (ew.)

Everyone from businessmen to heads of state wants an S-class. Even with Rolls-Royce, Maserati, Bentley and Porsche making far more expensive sedans, the S is still taken seriously and wouldn't look out of place parked in front of a royal palace. Quite simply one of, if not the best cars ever made. Every car wishes it could be an S-class when it grows up.
I want nothing more than to listen to some Frank Sinatra in the back of a Mercedes-Benz S-Class in NYC right now.
When I landed in Paris, I was picked up in a Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Take that, peasant.
Diana has both a Range Rover and an S-Class. I love her.
