The S 600 with V12 biturbo engine is the top model in the already successfully established S-Class and is available exclusively with long wheelbase and with a luxurious package of equipment and appointments. Its performance data: 390 kW (530 hp) and 830 Nm of torque. The S 600 will have its world premiere at the Detroit Auto Show, with the market launch to follow in March 2014. But the S-Class is about to get even better in other ways, too: the models in the current range will be upgraded with the addition of a head-up display, touchpad and COLLISION PREVENTION AssIST PLUS.

"The S-Class has always been the embodiment of our claim to deliver the very best in terms of both technology and design" emphasised Ola Kallenius, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Mercedes-Benz Cars. "And our flagship model, the S 600, epitomises the focus of our development work, the 'Essence of Luxury', in a way that no other model can. Our customers in North America and Asia in particular will enjoy this new top model with its exciting V12 engine."

With an output of 390 kW (530 hp), the V12 biturbo engine in the S 600 packs a bigger punch than its predecessor did with 380 kW (517 hp). The displacement of the engine has increased from 5513 to 5980 cc. The maximum torque of 830 Nm is available from 1900 rpm. The S 600 now for the first time features the ECO start/stop function as standard, while it also meets the Euro 6 emissions standard. The combined fuel consumption of the S 600 stands at 11.1 litres/100 km - 21 percent lower than that of its predecessor (14.1 l/100 km).

The comprehensive standard specification of the S 600 reinforces its role as a flagship model. The LED Intelligent Light System, the MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension with ROAD SURFACE SCAN and the Driving Assistance package Plus, for example, all come as standard. The latter comprises Active Lane Keeping Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist, BAS PLUS with Cross-Traffic Assist, DISTRONIC PLUS with STEER CONTROL and Stop&Go Pilot, PRE-SAFE Brake and PRE-SAFE PLUS.
