Since its early 1950s inception, the Mercedes Benz S Class has set the standard for luxury sedans. With the pinnacle of luxury recently entering its seventh generation, this Mercedes S 580 for sale is filled with the latest comforts and luxurious features.
While the S Class is well known for its smooth and graceful ride, the luxury sedan packs a powerful engine. Under the hood of this Mercedes Benz S 580 for sale is a 4.0L Biturbo V8 generating 496 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. Alongside the motor, a 48V electrical system is also found on board. The system not only improves fuel economy and smooths out the engine response but can also provide an additional 21 hp and 184 lb-ft when needed. Connected to the motor is a sophisticated 9-speed automatic transmission that directs power to all four wheels.
Altogether, the Mercedes S 580 can hit 60 mph in a brisk 4.4 seconds while providing fantastic comfort.
The leading S-Class comfort is achieved in part to its AIRMATIC air suspension. The system performs countless calculations and adjusts the suspension of each wheel individually to provide a level ride. Along with the suspension, the S 580 also features an active body control system that works to counteract any body roll.
The sedan’s rear-wheel steering counters the longer length of the S-Class. Thanks to the 10 degrees of motion, the S-Class can have turning radiuses that rival cars many times smaller.
