This is the twin-turbo 2014 Mercedes-Benz fresh from the 2014 Auto Show.

Hugely here and in Asia, the S600 bought for its technology, even if the new ushers three new hardware/software into the S-Class#146;s already cabin. There#146;s a head-up a touchpad to input data a swipe of the finger, and a big leap in the of Collision Prevention Assist

In keeping with the bigger-is-better the big V12 S600 won#146;t be available in wheelbase guise. Mercedes-Benz to keep the twin-turbo V12 exclusive to the long wheelbase version.

no denying the power. With the 523 hp and 612 lb-ft of torque, it’s to hurl the 4817-pound, four-door to 62 mph in 4.6 seconds. That#146;s unseemly the man/woman of import is usually in the folding rear seat, with an electrically adjustable and a hot rock massage, which is why it#146;s limited to 155 mph.

The big engine has gotten bigger, explains its 13-hp hike. It now justifies the car’s 6.0-liter tag by from 5513cc to 5980cc of and it also scores a new engine computer and twin-spark ignition. But is the least high-tech engine find in an S-Class. For starters, it do with three valves per and you won#146;t find direct injection anywhere near it.

the engine offers a 21 percent in fuel economy. The engine is to the trusty old seven-speed automatic (no sign of the nine-speed unit to the lesser hybrid), and the S600 comes in rear-wheel drive.

Besides the longest wheelbase, the also comes with the of equipment packages, including Body Control, a Driver Package, and Road Surface all as standard equipment.

It also a touchpad, allowing the driver and to input data via finger on a pad, much like the rival Audi has offered for time, even in its smaller It will function in a range of and writing styles, too, Latin characters to Cyrillic and Japanese and Chinese to Arabic.

The turning circle is an enormous feet, too, though presumably the chauffeur#146;s problem, and its fuel tank isn#146;t to get it too far between refills.

The core of the car is a body-in-white that has at its core, but aluminum is so prevalent it makes up about 50 percent of the body parts. The hood, lid, doors, and roof are all and Mercedes-Benz has squirted a specially-developed into the A-pillars to add stiffness and vibrations. The safety cell is almost completely high- and high-strength steels, and it has Mercedes-Benz new segment records for torsional

Beneath that, Mercedes-Benz the S600 a four-link front to control its 245/45 R19 front and a five-link rear end to govern the R19 rears.

While the S500#146;s 28 radars, and sonars are primarily for safety, they also a hand to the sedan’s autonomous abilities.

The tech helps the updated Assistance Package to autonomously from speeds as low as 7km/h Benz safety engineers on to protect children in driveways) to for Autobahn crises. It can now autonomously to a stop if it thinks the driver braking in time to get the job done.

The end of this is the PreSafe Plus, does essentially the same but looking back from the bumper. It still warns traffic of its sudden emergency by flashing its tail lights, but a rear-end collision be unavoidable, the car stands on its own brake pedal in to try to avoid being pushed traffic.

And there is more. more. There are systems to steer the car for up to 15 seconds at a time, to warn when move on an unseen car, systems to when a faster car is approaching blind spot, a radar control that doubles as a jam brake and throttle, and more.

Mercedes-Benz claims the S-Class is the car in history without light Not only are the head and tail all LED, but so is most of the internal There are around 500 LEDs in the with 56 in each headlight and, if you include the rear fog up to 39 in the taillights. Three hundred of the lurk around the cabin to ambient lighting, too.

Mercedes-Benz has yet to talk about the of the S600, it can be expected to be a significant forward from the short S500#151;itself no slouch in the luxury with passenger footrests, backrests in the rear, and 23 speakers in its exorbitant version.
