Thumbs up Best car in the world

Frankmehta..if u r staying near the Merc showroom pls do click as much as fotos of the new S in different colours & wheel rims..so far no new S is there in Kerala..hopefully some serious orders are placed at the dealers..

I saw the new S in the Merc brand show & felt as if its smaller than the older one even though it has grown in size..the car is superb in designing, luxury & technology..in person I liked the new S rather than the Maybach. It is 'the best car in the world'..

Poetry on wheels is all I can say.. They just seem to keep finding ways to make the S Class more desirable every time they change the model. Three Generations of the S Class including this one have been my personal favorites.

well well thats a beau of a car there. the circular dot on the wheel arch is definitely a flag post. guess this is a budding politician in the making or is one already. dont think its the "best car " in the world after all the nigglig problems with the mercs... i htink the bmw is the best and safe bet now. but then again india is hung over the merc symbol!

Three pointed star is always a better symbol than the a propalar..but its not the matter of symbol..In any respect the new S is much better than its competitors whether it may be BMW 7 or Audi A8..I don't say that both these cars are not up to the mark or any such baseless words, but its a truth that the S is a superior car in all respects..The build quality, refinement, technology etc have improved a lot more..After all every one has their own personal choice & mine defenitly the mighty S-class

Took the words right out of my mouth. It looks majestic, especially in this colour.

It seems the new S is already a hit with Indian consumers. I already saw one more silver S350 looking quite good actually.

It looks like the S is a favourite amongst Indians. Barely launched in RHD around the world and we already get around 4-5.

when comes to presence somehow i still love the squarish old S class which really made its presence felt. It still looks "Majestic, Graceful" when parked next to the new curvy S series and also if compared to a beemer.

its a Flag post socket. to mount the flag rod. this design has been with MB for over 2 decades, and comes as an option for diplomatic sales.

dear hans u will be surprised how the mighty propeller heas been the fuel for many fo the innovations the merc has simply copied. after all imitation is the simplest form of flattery and well merc doing well by copying the beemer in more than many a ways!! u cannot even compare the fit and refinement of the bmw with the merc...there is no price being second and beemer wins its hands down atleast this year!

Default Pics dont do it justice !

Waz at a break from work today as soon as i stepped out the new S Class stopped in front of me at a red light. It was a thing of beauty .... pics dont do justice at all. Had a peep glance of the beige interiors it was just hot the feel to touch it and have a feel of it from the inside was just very tempting. Would love to see more pics in India.

Safe,
Ash
