S330....hmm, man, have I been oblivious to Mercedes engine sizes, or is that error by you. Let it be the latter, or else my diminishing love for Mercedes will totally zerofy in a moment.

That pics was nice..hope its having a panoramic glass top..

S500 is the car to have..its new V8 is silky smooth & very powerful to take on the challeges from any V8s..And the biturbo V12 is one of its kind with 500+ hp & 900NM torque.. ..

The techs like presafe, distronic, night view assist, reverse cameras and lot of other techs in the previous S-classes also are not copied from any other cars..but its being copied from S-class by others..

Default off topic

come to real terms and the 500sel has some hidden devilish charm which makes u feel to keep the pedal to metal and also make that exahust roar. the S or 7series on the other hand feel nice to be with a light foot on the pedal.

Spotted the new S being escorted by 2 X5's near the airport. The new S is huge and looks much better than the one it replaces.

Default Just an observation

2006 S class decidedly looks very imposing but some how lacks the old Elegance that Mercedes was associated with in terms of Design Philosophy though from some angles the new one looks clean and neat ...This is one...I guess
