The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has and continues to be the pinnacle of mainstream German full-size luxury cars since the first generation debuted in 1972. Along with its main competitor the BMW 7-Series, and to some extent, the Audi A8, the S-Class or ‘Sonderklasse in German, which means Special Class represents the best German engineering, technological prowess and uncompromised luxury. It’s a car that as a sedan is primarily designed to be driven in. However, Mercedes-Benz recognized that there are owners at this level who indulge in the joy of driving and have the S-Class Coupe and Convertible as offerings targeted at them.
