Unknown to most owners the S in the Mercedes Benz S-Class stands for the German word Sonderklasse, meaning "special".
It's classed as a full-size luxury sedan complete the latest in comfort and safety technology you would expect from the German automobile manufacturer.
In 1972 the S-Class made its first appearance replacing a range of large sedan lines the company were selling such as the Ponton, Fintail and the W108.
You could choose from a variety of different sized engines for the original car, a tradition the company carried on through further releases of the S-Class.
Buyers have always had the option of an entry-level size engine around 2.5 litres in displacement all the way through to a 6 litre V8 for markets such as North America.
In 1999 the company released the first AMG version of the S-Class sporting a supercharged 5.4 litre V8 putting out almost 500bhp to the rear wheels.
All generations of the car since have offered an AMG trim version with the car's power increasing each time and the features list growing with it.
For high-risk buyers such as celebrities, politicians and royalty an armoured version of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is available called the S-Guard.
