With increased displacement and a commensurate boost in output, the biturbo V-12 combines exuberance and effortlessness like no other engine. Such thoroughbred specifications as a diecast alloy block, forged pistons and sodium-filled exhaust valves team with a new twin-spark ignition and advanced engine controls. The result is far more than its 523 hp, 612 lb-ft of torque, and 5.0-second sprint to 60 mph. It's the feeling of unconquerable strength that it delivers with unflappable poise.
A fuel-saving ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for immediate acceleration response. The ECO Start/Stop system can also be shut off by the driver at any time.
Smooth, responsive and efficient, the 7-speed automatic offers the ideal response in virtually every driving situation, from relaxed cruising to quick acceleration. Two overdrive ratios enhances highway fuel-efficiency. An electronic selector and shift paddles on the steering wheel let you control all gear changes with your hands on the wheel. Adaptive logic paces automatic shifting to match your driving style. And the shift paddles let you enjoy manual control anytime.
Advanced electromechanical power steering delivers quicker response in corners, easier maneuvering at low speeds, along with precise on-center feel and straight-line stability.
The S-Class is the first car without a single lightbulb since the advent of electric lighting in automobiles. From its headlamps to its distinctive three-tier taillamps, nearly 200 long-lasting and energy-efficient LEDs accomplish every exterior lighting function with distinctive style. LEDs also offer quicker illumination, offering other drivers more time to react to your brake lamps and other signals.
Intricately sculpted spokes each feature an asymmetrical opening and shimmering finish that evoke both the fluid shapes of nature and the precision of machinery. High-performance Extended Mobility tires fill the wheel arches with confidence.
Offering both front- and rear-seat passengers sweeping skyward views, this fully functional glass sunroof features a front panel that can either tilt up for ventilation or slide over the rear panel for an open-air feeling. Dual interior power shades with controls allow the driver and each rear passenger to adjust the amount of sunlight entering the cabin.
Intuitive, and artfully sculpted, seat-shaped controls help you and your front passenger find your ideal seating positions with 12-way power adjustment, including cushion length. A memory system for each front seat recalls three stored seat positions with the touch of a button. The driver-seat memory also includes the power steering column and side mirror positions. Standard heating with automatic timed step-down adds soothing, controlled comfort in cool weather.
A network of hundreds of LEDs and fiber-optics let you create an ambience to suit your mood. Seven selectable colors, adjustable brightness, and three lighting zones let you control the atmosphere. LED underlighting of the sweeping "waveform" dash and subtle backlighting of the in-dash displays elevate the front cabin's finely crafted beauty while highlighting its fascinating technology. Underlighting of the wood trim in the rear cabin ensconces the passengers in a soothing glow.
The active multicontour front seats each feature adjustable lumbar supports, side bolsters and shoulder supports, for custom-tailored support. Active side bolsters can be set to automatically increase lateral support in cornering maneuvers, or even in the event of a potential accident. Six massage programs can soothe and rejuvenate the lower back, including two modes combining massage and heat for a "hot stone" effect worthy of a high-end spa.

And since the washer fluid reservoir, lines and even the wiper blades are heated, it's also extremely effective in cold weather.
