Any automaker that has survived a grand total of 125 years has plenty to celebrate, and Mercedes been doing just that with plenty of special editions and even a commemorative statue. Of course, since 2011 isn’t over just yet, Mercedes is continuing its 125th celebration with another special edition, the Mercedes S-Class Grand Edition. The Grand Edition not only celebrates 125 years of Mercedes, but also the 60 years of the b>S-Class. The new Grand Edition will be applied to the current Elegance and Avatgarde versions and will add an attractive sporty AMG feeling to the vehicles.
The Mercedes S-Class Grand Edition will be distinguished from the rest of the S-Class models by a new front spoiler that underlines the imposing presence of the S-Class and a new air intake that extends to the base. The side skirts allow the line of the S-Class to continue towards the back of the vehicle to the rear apron, where the rear bumper with black insert rounds the car out. The final touch is provided by a new set of 19" AMG wheels with 255/40 tires for the front and 275/40 for the rear, a sport exhaust system, and updated brakes with 350mm perforated front discs.
The interior offers sophisticated finishes, with a wood and leather steering wheel, sports pedals, and black ash dashboard.
