Lighting effects

The headlamps evoke associations the current-model products and at the same give the design study a and unmistakable face.

The is significantly enhanced braking when cornering.

The large brake discs mm diameter at the front, 350 mm diameter at the are made of a high-tech carbon ceramic material which can extreme temperatures of up to 1600 centigrade and is around a third than grey cast

Four-wheel drive and air suspension

The drive electronic traction system 4-ETS and the Electronic Program ESP® deliver active safety, keeping the GST on track both on and off surfaced

The AIRMATIC air suspension system is one of technologies which the design has borrowed from the S-Class and provide impeccable comfort on journeys.
