The S600 is actually a 5.5L V12 with twin turbo-chargers.

Default S600

A very reliable source told me that one's coming to Bangalore in less than a month. Ordered by a very famous businessman.

My boss (in US) has the same one. It is an awesome car! He gave me the keys to drive once, but I did not take it - I cannot afford to be bonded labour to the company till my life ends (if I crash the car by mistake)

But travelled in the car though - Heights of comfort! It is the best car I have been so far.

My other boss has a Ferrari, Aston Martin, BMW, Merc - Feels good to work in company of people who have a good taste for cars!

The standard S600 has a single pipe on either side. Maybe these are aftermarket exhaust tips and not aligned properly or damaged.

Oops thanks for the info.
By the way my other question remains unanswered, any difference is the 2009 model? ( Because the topic is called 2009 Mercedes 600S)
