The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S600 has been officially presented to the public during the 2014 NAIAS, in a world premiere.

“The S-Class has always been the embodiment of our claim to deliver the very best in terms of both technology and design and our flagship model, the S 600, epitomizes 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”, said Ola Kallenius, the company’s VP of Sales and Marketing.

Some of the other goodies available for this model include the head-up display, the Collision Prevention Assist, the adaptive Brake Assist system, the electric windscreen heating, which is working in conjunction with the air conditioning blower to ensure a clear windscreen at sub-zero temperatures and much more.

Power to the new Mercedes-Benz S600 is being provided by a 6.0 liter V12 twin turbo engine, which is developing a total output of 530 HP (390 kW) and it has a peak torque of 830 nm (612 lb-ft) of torque.
