Maybe it's just me but why does Merc always debut their new models or showcase official images as models with the AMG kit, almost if the original stock isn't good enough to showcase.

do most car companies unveil the base models of their new cars first?

as with all recent Mercedes, the falling line along the side of the car looks silly, especially without a some sort of rear fender bulge. an S class should debut a new styling direction, not take the headlight design and general front end from their cheapest models and stretch it.

I don't mean base model, I meant the higher end without the AMG kit.

what is the higher end S-Class? Is there a higher end S-class that isnt the AMG? If you mean the S600 then they usually dont unveil that until after launch. If you a regular S550 or whatever then thats the base model haha.

In Europe, where you have base models with much smaller engines and less options.

For example S250 CDI, or S350, S400 hybrid, S500, S600 and then AMG.

Which also seems to be the case in the US, except you have S550 and then S600 and finally AMG but no S250 CDI.

Mansory hardly ever disappoints when it comes to horrible nouveau-riche taste.....

2018 Facelift







New base S450 model in the US
S550 becomes S560 with new 4.0L V8
Maybach becomes S650 with 6.0L V12

Was hoping the magic body control suspension would be available with 4Matic but no such luck. Overall looks clean, still the class leader.

I believe the article is incorrect in that the V6 in the S450 should actually be the new straight 6.
