The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the brand’s flagship automobile with an enduring best-in-class legacy, is extensively updated to maintain its position as the world’s bestselling luxury limousine. The S 450 L is powered by a 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol engine from an all-new Mercedes-Benz family of powertrains paired with a 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission, developing an output of 367 hp with 500 Nm of torque for a 0-100km/h time of just 5.4 seconds.
The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is opulence in its truest form and Icon of Luxury of the S-Class family, combining the perfection of the S-Class with the superlative exclusivity of Maybach. Individuality is elevated to new heights with such features as the grille with its vertical struts, optional two-tone paintwork, a selection of 20-inch wheels exclusive to the Maybach. An interior experience second to none, the car features black nappa leather upholstery with a choice of copper, gold or platinum coloured topstitching. Offered in a V8-powered S 560 and V12-powered S 650 formats, this model is priced from RM1.4 million with further individualisation and personalisation available upon request.
The Mercedes-AMG S 63 Coupe is the perfect driver’s car, offering brutal performance, superior dynamics and an undeniably strong presence with the signature AMG Panamericana grille with a new Jet Wing design for the front apron and air intakes. Under the muscular bodywork is the ubiquitous 4.0-litre biturbo V8 engineered by AMG, in the S 63 Coupé producing 612 hp and an immense 900 Nm of torque, transferring power to the rear wheels via a nine-speed AMG Speedshift MCT gearbox for a ballistic century sprint of just 4.2 seconds.
