Here is the S500. I have not taken the front of the car as it was blacked and everyone knows hot it looks. The wheels could have been better.

It might be the company's test car brought down for homologation. Was it de-badged or covered the badges?

No. It had badges. It was a 500 and it had those twin Chrome tipped exhausts.

Hani the car does exist and it need not be homologated as it is a direct import and above the required price bracket. There also is a deep blue S 600 in town. The 500 and 600 are direct imports.

Ok speedy; but I think company has not started importing the FL S-classes!

Is the tansanite blue S600 the facelifted one?

I'm sure the current S will be going at a handsome discount now that the facelift is due to arrive. Any idea on that figure?

Nice pic.
An amazing piece of machinery there.
