As much as we adore AMG products, we have admit sometimes we find them a bit, as James May observantly put it, a bit unnecessary. I mean, here we are going to take a closer look at the Mercedes S500 Coupe Edition 1, and I put it to you, in the real world it is just fast as an S63, and it is more dignified and luxurious, not to mention cheaper.
So unless you are a colossal show-off who likes to turn necks with glitzy chrome bits and loud exhaust noise, this is the luxury coupe you should buy. From the way it looks, to the way it feels inside the cabin, to the way it drives, Mercedes S500 Coupe Edition 1 is a car for connoisseurs.
This black beauty you see here is brought to you by the good folks at Alain Class Motors, the unique cars of whom we have been enjoying immensely this past few months. They realized they have many one of a kind cars just sitting there in the showroom and decided to make a display of them for others to admire.
Mercedes S500 Coupe Edition 1 is powered by a 4.6 liter V8 engine developing 455 horsepower, which as mentioned delivers more than satisfactory performance. Yes, it is about a second slower to 100 km/h than the S63, but it is also around 50,000 Euros cheaper!
