The SLR has a maximum speed of 337 per hour (209 mph) and approximately US$500,000.

Due to European regulations, McLaren has decided to production of the SLR in 2009.

The most new joint-venture model, expected to production, is the mid-engine P8 sports Based around a unique fiber/fibre monocoque, manufactured by the P8 was originally predicted to receive the new aspirated 6.2L V8 from but insiders now say that the engine be modified for the car and will probably be turbocharged to produce in excess of 600 bhp kW). The car is still in development, but to reach production to go on sale in 2008, and have a price tag than that of the SLR.

In (starting with the 1994 the traditional nomenclature of Mercedes-Benz changed. Since the early of the company the name would be in the of 500E where the engine made up the first three and the last letter(s) represented the of engine and/or chassis; for E for fuel injection (Einspritzung in D for Diesel, L for long wheelbase

In 1994, this was altered so the prefix reflected the model German Klasse, in Mercedes-Benz and a number the displacement. The suffix was in some cases, for example L for wheelbase, and CDI for Diesel (CDI = rail Direct Injection). the 500E in the example above the E500 (E-Klasse, 5 liters

It should also be noted while in the past the model generally accurately reflected the engine displacement, this is not always the case — for the E200 CDI and E220 CDI actually have a 2.2 liter/litre displacement, and the actually has a 2.6 liter/litre engine.

Mercedes-Benz S-Class

The S-Class is a series of the largest produced by Mercedes-Benz, a division of AG. The S-Class, a product of nine of Mercedes-Benz models dating the mid-1950s, is the world’s best-selling flagship sedan. As the foremost in the Mercedes-Benz lineup, the S-Class has many of the company’s latest including drivetrain technologies, features, and safety systems as the first airbag supplemental systems, seatbelt pretensioners, and stability program).

The latest the W221 S-Class, premiered in as an all-new design. As in previous the latest S-Class is sold in and long wheelbase versions and V6, V8, V12, and diesel powertrains.

The S-Class derives from the word Sonderklasse of which is an abbreviation. Sonderklasse means class (or rather: In a class of its and in automotive terms thus to a specially outfitted car. used colloquially for decades, the designation was first officially in 1973 with the debut of the model line.

Since five generations of officially-named sedans have been Past two-door coupe of the S-Class became known as the in 1998.

In early Mercedes-Benz the S-Class designation was used referring to the letter S which most of the larger six-cylinder vehicles in the company’s lineup not the luxurious V8-powered 600 limousine).

In early cases, as in the Ponton the S was applied to vehicles requiring fuel (Super in Germany) due to the compression ratio and output of the top-of-the-line engines. These engines were available in the chassis lines, Mercedes’ without a conventional frame, a unitized body/frame construction. line was introduced in the mid-to-late and came to encompass the 220a, 219 220S, and 220SE (sedan, and convertible) models.

Both models were produced the 1950s.

In 1959, the Ponton was replaced by the new 220Sb with (standard body) with with the different six-cylinder of the W111 mainly differing the smaller 4-cylinder variant by a different length of the front, and the of chrome applied. Thus, the introduced in 1961 as a predecessor to the E-Class, featured a shorter for the economy models 190c and The W112, as 300 SEL with a longer was for the short period the top model of succeeding the baroque Großer (Grand Mercedes) 300, 300c, and 300d, which often associated with Konrad Adenauer.

In 1965, the line also added the sedan.

With West economy growing in the early Mercedes-Benz saw the opportunity to build a larger vehicle than aimed mostly at an international and heads of state. In 1965, the introduced the luxurious 600 limousine series), which assumed the of Großer Mercedes. This became a showcase of luxury and being the most luxurious to date and it can be viewed as an early of the modern Maybach models, than as part of the S-Class although certain techologies in this car did find their way the smaller model.

The 600’s the flagship of the marque was later by the modern S-Class.

With being passé and dropped in of a look similar to the 600, the and larger W108/W109 lines introduced, which included the 250SE, 300SE, and 300SEL wheelbase) models. The W108/109 which eventually supplanted the lines, were not available 4-cylinder engines, and thus the distinct S-Class market which continues to the present Since the debut of the W111 each iteration of the S-Class has short and long wheelbase with the latter models as the W109) typically being the luxurious, powerful, and well-equipped, the V8-powered 300SEL 6.3 marking the

In 1973, Mercedes-Benz introduced the line, the first to be officially the S-Class. The arrival of the W116 saw the of much improved passive into the vehicle design, features such as anti-lock and a strengthened vehicle occupant Also, the V8-engines of the 350/450 models were now regular

Due to the oil crisis, fuel efficiency was the concern for the engineers, yet they added also the Mercedes-Benz 6.9.

In 1979, the W126 replacing the W116 line. The brought much-improved aerodynamics to the enlarged yet lighter engines blocks made of aluminium. models based on the S-Class reintroduced (380/500 SEC). It introduced now well-known safety such as passenger side seatbelt pretensioners, and traction

It became the most successful design ever built and was for twelve years, its model extended by the first-ever S-Class update.

The W126 was succeeded in by the W140 line, which saw the car dramatically in its proportions, for which it criticism. Also, more and numerous features were in response to growing international

In late 1999, the smaller but roomy W220 saw a renewed on elegance and style, with a rounded shape compared to the W140. The W220 was produced in a version only; at that the W140 S-Class coupes had been succeeded by the new CL-Class in models of which share design and features with the Since 2003, the traditionally drive S-Class also 4Matic all-wheel drive in markets.

In 2007, the current S-Class premiered, replacing the This latest generation of the is slightly larger than its with sharper exterior (most notably wide arcs) and technological improvements. New features on the W221 include an night vision feature and the Mercedes-Benz pre-collision system. The is the second consecutive generation of the to be solely produced in a sedan style.

In the U.S. base for the W221 S-Class range $87,475 for the S550, $144,975 for the $127,775 for the S63 AMG and $194,775 for the S65 AMG.

stretches of the German Autobahn system do not feature any speed except the recommended 130 km/h (81 Driving at rather high for extended periods tends to in increased strain on a vehicle and careful engineering. Mercedes-Benz has to engineer its vehicles, most the S-Class, to excel in this environment. allowing high cruising.

Specific standards of performance, body integrity, and are part of this process. For the S-Class is built with an top speed of 250 km/h (160 which drivers can maintain driving on the autobahn. AMG Manufaktur offers delimitation or reset to 300 (190 mph).

Historically, the engineering of the S-Class has occurred without regard to a practice which continued up through the W140 line. The in turn has been able to this as a marketing tool, in its onetime slogan, engineered no other car in the world. This was used throughout the 1980s the marketing of the W126 S-Class.

following the formation of DaimlerChrysler and the of engineer-sanctioned overbudgeting in the late this slogan was dropped; the W220 model S-Class exhibited lower reliability and rates.

In typical Mercedes-Benz introduced in the late 1920s, the designation of each car consisted of numbers indicating engine (up to 770 in the 1930s), and optional letters either engine features since the first Diesel of or body styles (K for kurz as in the 1930s 540K). After War II, these codes were carried over from one to the next. The letters stem German terminology. For example, denotes an S-Class (Sonderklasse) with an engine size of 5,000 ccm, with injection (Einspritzung) and a long (Lang). Note that the S and L in SEL are not to those in SL (Sport Leicht); the SL are not S-Class vehicles.

In German, the vehicles are referred to as die S-Klasse.

190E 2.6, in order to it from the mid-sized 260E, the five-door 260TE, and the S-Class using the same six-cylinder. In when the W202 was introduced as the traditional naming convention plus letters) was reversed, a leading letter identifying the (currently, A, B, C, E, G, M, R, S, V are in use). From on, the long-wheelbase models (formerly and the regular length models SE) are both labeled with the of S regardless of length.

For example, 500SEL and 500SE are now labeled as with fuel injection standard by now anyway.

Currently, the is available in three trim the numbers are given in ascending to denote more upscale (e.g. S550/S600/S63 AMG etc.) In Mercedes-Benz publications and on vehicle a space between the letter and is customary (e.g. S 600).

The longevity of the W126 S-Class cycle was aided by a mid-cycle in 1986, an upgrade which was not done in S-Class generations. the update of the W126 model a facelift was performed and engine occurred.

Powerplants on the W126 included straight-6 and V8 engines. sales came from the model in the United States and models in Europe, although the V8 were praised by contemporary During the W126 mid-cycle in 1986, both the straight-6 and V8 were upgraded in several to different displacement levels upgraded from 2.8L to eight-cylinder upgraded from to 4.2L, and 5.0L to 5.6L).
