Mercedes-Benz S 600

The roots of the S-Class date back to the early 1950s, when Mercedes launched the 220 model, which had a new six-cylinder engine with an overhead camshaft. The S-Class made its first official showing in 1954, with the 180 luxury class sedan model series, which featured self-supporting integral body construction. Keep in mind that the Mercedes naming practice has changed over the years and that in those days, the S designation followed the numerals, which were based on engine size. Much later, in 2007, Mercedes-Benz introduced the ninth generation of the S-Class. They launched the latest creation of their revered S 600 luxury sedan. And as always and as to be expected, the S 600 helps define the standard for a world-class luxury sedan. Back in time, the third-generation S-Class models followed in 1959, with advancements in safety features such as padded dashboards and crumple zones. In fact, the S Class autos have always been at the forefront of safety. Later, three-point seat belts were added for the fourth generation, which were introduced in 1965, while in 1978 the first-ever anti-lock brake systems, and the official adoption of the S-Class moniker. Other design and mechanical enhancements were made all through the 1970s, 1980s, and in the 1990s. For one, Mercedes introduced S-Class models with 12-cylinder engines, such as the SL 600, which was unveiled in 1994. Back to the current model, the S 600 features a 5.5-liter, bi-turbo V12 engine that produces 510 horsepower. The vehicle is manufactured with a wide range of cutting-edge technical and mechanical advancements, including a Night View Assist infrared night vision system, an Electronic Stability Program, an Electronic Traction System, Bi-Xenon headlights with Active Curve Illumination and an Adaptive Braking system. This should be enough to please even the pickiest shopper. And if it is not, they will not find better anywhere else.
