The Mercedes-Benz S600 2014 has been released at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. With 523 horsepower -- 13 times more than the previous models -- and a torque level that reaches 1,900 rpm, the gear shifts are maneuvered through the tronic.
The S-Class model comes with the standard list you’d expect such as a road surface scan and Drivers Assistance Package. It also features a touchpad controller and collision-prevention assist system, which is able to detect an emergency ahead of time and automatically slows the vehicle from up to 124 mp if the driver is unable to respond to its warning signs.
Furthermore, once the car is slowed, the system can stop at speeds of 31 mph if it detects objects or pedestrians in the road ahead. Should you experience sub-zero temperatures as many of us often do, there’s a windshield heating system, which works in conjunction with the air-conditioning that can clear up ice on the windshield. The S600 model is luxurious, powerful and tech-savvy.
