Dream Car: Feel rich and famous in a Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe

Want to make like the rich and famous? Then this Mercedes-Benz S500 AMG could be your dream car.

IF I HAD the money I’d buy…

A car which symbolises the ultimate in driving comfort and elegance with plenty of performance too. A class-leading car that screams ‘I have arrived’. And this 2016 Mercedes-Benz S500 AMG Line for €179,000 ticks all those boxes.

Why a Mercedes-Benz S-Class?

The S-Class is the flagship car for Mercedes, so, as you would expect, it is packed full of magnificent features; the latest and greatest technology; and outstanding performance and driving dynamics. The contours of the S-Class combine style and sporty elegance, which suggest power and dynamism – and that’s before the car even moves.

On the road it cuts quite a dash and the suspension systems ensure superior comfort on long journeys.

What’s special about this particular one?

This particular model is the AMG Line specification, so it has that wicked looking diamond radiator grille with chrome-coloured pins, as well as dynamic AMG body styling with sporty AMG 20-inch alloy wheels and perforated brake discs.

This one also features a panoramic sunroof, which makes the cabin lovely and bright as do the Sahara Beige perforated leather seats. The mix of walnut wood trim and leather finishing on the dashboard lends a wonderful elegance.

Oh, and it is powered by a V8 petrol engine with 455hp and 700Nm of torque. Phwoar.

Who else drives one?

With its blend of high-end comfort and performance, the S-Class is a favourite among the rich and famous, especially those at the top of their field.

Award-winning actress Annette Bening drives an S500, Angela Merkel rides in the back of an S-Class, as does our own President. And the Kardashians are big fans.
