Big Motoring Worlds Car of the Week: Mercedes S-Class

The Mercedes Benz S Class, arguably the flagship saloon of the Mercedes range and potentially one of the best executive saloons ever produced.Whilst its predecessor was manufactured since the mid-1950’s, the S Class name came to pass in 1972 and has remained a constant fixture ever since. Throughout that time it has commonly been the technological test bed for Mercedes Benz,

being the first with features such as seat belt pretensioners and drivetrain technologies, all of which are taken for granted today but were groundbreaking at the time.Throughout this time it has set the standard for luxury saloons and had held titles such as the ‘World’s Best Selling Luxury Sedan’, high endorsement indeed.The S-Class you see before you today is no lesser of a machine than it’s subsequent counterparts. Finished in diamond white, the exterior is completed with the optional and contrasting silver and gunmetal grey coloured 20” AMG alloy wheels and statement chrome grill at the front end which is flanked proudly by the three-pointed star.On the interior side of things, you will find what can only be defined as an automotive technical showcase, featuring a raft of entertainment and driver convenience features. Find yourself settling in comfortably as you get comfortable in the black leather upholstered seats as you take in the view looking up and out of the electric panoramic sunroof.The interior specification is completed by items such as Satellite navigation, ambient lighting, heated seats, AMG body styling, Bluetooth, cruise control, memory seats and 360-degree camera to name but a small fraction.Under the bonnet is a powerful, yet refined, 3.0-Litre diesel engine which is capable of producing 255 bhp. Completing the drivetrain is an automatic gearbox which offers a smooth and pleasurable drive.This car has been beautifully specced by its previous owner and the extra features specified alone total £7,880.
