The big-buck S-Class continues atop Mercedes' sedan line for 2005 with relatively few changes. The rear-drive S430 and S500 versions come powered by V-6 and V-8 engines, respectively, which drive the rear wheels via a seven-speed-automatic transmission. A 5.5-liter supercharged V-8 in the S55 AMG variant produces 493 horsepower, while the twin-turbo V-12 in the S600 generates the same power, but with greater low-end torque. A laundry list of features from virtually every page of Mercedes parts list includes four-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist, front- and rear-side and side-curtain airbags, Automatic Slip Control, Electronic Stability Program, an adaptive suspension, variable-focus headlamps, a satellite navigation system, premium Bose audio system, leather upholstery, and heated windshield washers.

a beautiful automobile both in and out. All categories are outstanding. A large engine does reduce fuel consumption but is still pretty good. I get 27 mpg on the road.
