2009 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Review

The 2009 S Class is a marriage of industry-first technology and timeless craftsmanship. The Mercedes- Benz S550 will ensure you perform at the highest levels. Its 382 Horsepower V8 will take you 0-60 in an estimated 5.4 seconds. Inside the S600 is a massive 36-valve biturbo V-12 engine generating 510 horsepower propelling the S600 to the forefront of the world's luxury sedans. Inside the hand-polished wood trim throughout the cabin is finished and set by hand and butter-soft front leather seats feature 15 pneumatic chambers to deliver four different levels of massage. The S Class is equipped with the Mercedes Benz innovative Command Controller - control the radio cd-DVD changer navigation system and more without taking your eyes off the road. The 2009 S Class is Mercedes most advanced vehicle ever.
