"Mercedes-Benz created the first petrol-powered car in 1886. It has been since then, one of the most respected automakers. The company’s longevity and high-quality automobiles support its fame. In America, it joined Chrysler in 1998 and the Daimler-Chrysler was born. Top of its line is the S65 AMG, which is a 604-Horsepower twin-turbo charged V-12 AMG engine linking to a 5-speed automatic transmission that adjusts to your driving style and allows shifting to be more smooth, F1-inspired manual shifters, AMG-tuned Active Body Control (ABC), race-bred brakes, together with 20 inch AMG 5-spoke light alloy wheels. Other options are the S550 Sedan 5.5 liter 32-valve V8 382Horse power at 6000 rpm, then onto the S600 Sedan with it 5.5 liter 36-valve bi-turbo V-12 with 510Hp@5000rpm. With the permanent four-wheel drive, you can find the S550 4-matic Sedan that can basically be the same car as the standard S550. However, many would disagree that there is such thing as a standard Mercedes-Benz. "
