    • @Jarod M are you okay? Because those two aren't S classes.

  • I'm no car expert, but it feels like you skipped a couple of generations/versions of the S-Class, in particular the 2018-ish model - I was really looking forward to seeing it, especially the way it looks in comparison to the previous and the latest model(s). Slightly disappointed, but will not leave a dislike. All in all, a decent review.

  • I’d like more videos in this style. Loved how you went from car to car and have a history lesson on each. Would love to see something like this for the BMW 3 series; one of my favorite cars of all-time.

  • I wonder why they did not produce any s classes between 1929-1951 tho.

  • They also made a few models between 1940 and 1945, but those are in the SS-Class.

  • This is how you know Mercedes themselves realised they really F***** Up! Big Time! On this latest Mercedes, simply because they are now pitching the car and trying their up most best to sell it to you by giving you a lecture about their not so interesting past S classes looool before the S Class just sold, now it needs an entire script dating all the way back to the 1900's 🤣🤣🤣 Mercedes has Failed & BMW & Audi have won!

  • They just made the car look terrible. Personally I think Mercedes is losing so much edge to Tesla. Rich people in NY and LA stopped buying s class.

  • Der Mercedes Nürburgring 400 hat seinen Namen bekommen, weil er über 20.000 Km auf dem Nürburgring ohne Pause gefahren ist. Und die Rote Sau hat ihren Namen bekommen, weil sie damals eins der schnellsten Autos der Welt war und die erste Lackierung eine rote Rennlackierung war.

  • A few errors here I dare to say. They were using the letter S decades before the model you indicated. Like the S, S, SSK and SSKL models of the 1920's and in numerous model designations in the '30's.

  • Hmm, fav S-Class. Well, my 2012 S63 was a freight train and a beast, but without 4Matic getting power to the ground was tough and tires did not last long. My current S550, 2017, was a special order and is to me the perfect S, even compared to new version. But my family has had many versions of S-Class since 1969, and my dad’s 1990 560SEL was a bank vault (remember how those old doors made a thunk/click in the same way no matter how hard the door was closed?), classic, not too many goofy electronic features and incredibly easy and fun to drive.
