I’ve been in the Mercedes-Benz S580 for the last week. Yes, it’s rather expensive with a sticker price north of $140,000 as-tested. But it’s hard to find a thing it does wrong as it relates to your average car. There’s tons of power from the twin-turbocharged V8. The seats are insanely comfortable. It’s quite nice to blast music from the 1,750-watt Burmester sound system. All of the safety systems are the best in the industry. And it’s incredibly quiet inside of the cabin. On top of that, it stands out in a subtle way. There’s no need to shout here. It’s one of the best vehicles I’ve driven from the perspective of delivering on anything you need from a car at the highest levels across the board.
I love this car. It’s the best… car.
Yet I know you’ll all have far better answers. You always do. This one is too expensive and too silly an answer, but it’s my answer. What’s your answer?
