It’s no secret that Mercedes-Benz is one of the most storied auto manufacturers of all time. Their peace symbol on the front of their vehicles is synonymous with luxury and their advanced technological features combined with the comfort of the interior is something to be emulated.
Recently, Mercedes-Benz has started rolling out a long-wheel base model for expansion into the Asian market. With the expansion of Mercedes-Benz and their continued prowess in the luxury auto market, there are a number of Mercedes-Benz vehicles on the road that people would love to be chauffeured in.
The Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG: Black Series
This Mercedes-Benz vehicle is a powerful roadster that is still on the road today. For those who enjoy a powerful ride, this is the answer. This roadster comes with a 6.0 L turbocharged V12 engine, leading to acceleration and speed that is virtually unmatched. Featuring a mind-boggling 740 foot-pounds of torque, this roadster certainly packs a punch. Even better, the vehicle comes as a convertible so that drivers can put the top down as the wind whips through their hair at breakneck speeds; however, Mercedes-Benz took this roadster a step further when they rolled out the Black Series version of this monster. The Black Series version featured a 10 percent increase in horsepower and a lighter vehicle. This model also comes with improved brakes and massive tires, leading to a completely revolutionary ride. Those who like power will love this vehicle.
The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss
Fans of the movie Back to the Future will love this Mercedes-Benz model. This is the prototypical definition of a supercar that even includes the gullwing doors that people fell in love with from the movie. This Mercedes-Benz model was designed as a tribute to the 300 SLR race car that Stirling Moss used back when he was a racer. This vehicle lacks a windshield or a roof; however, the vehicle is street legal. This car packs a 5.4 L supercharged V8 engine that features over 640 horsepower. This is certainly a unique vehicle that makes a statement and those who enjoy riding around in race cars will certainly love this ride.
Armored Mercedes-Benz Maybach 600 Guard
Slightly different than the race cars discussed so far, this armored version of the Mercedes-Benz Maybach S600 is designed with the safety of passengers in mind. The Mercedes-Benz S600 is already one of the most popular luxury sedans; however, this armored Maybach takes it to a completely new level.
It features an advanced armored plating that is designed with protection against steel-cored bullets fired from the barrel of assault rifles in mind. This includes the windows. Modified in Germany, those who enjoy being chauffeured around in the safest of vehicles may want to take a look at this behemoth that could survive a trip through the hottest war zone on the planet. The car comes complete with composite armor and anti-splintering layers in the windows that are just a couple inches thicker to make sure that nobody gets injured no matter what the situation is.
The SLR McLaren FAB Design Desire
For those who would like to ride around in one of the most expensive sports cars ever designed, this is the answer. This McLaren Mercedes-Benz has a number of impressive specifications that justifies its close to $1.5 million price tag. This sports car features a 5.4 L V8 engine that provides a mind-blowing 750 horsepower to the engine along with 552 kW of torque. The car tops out at over 300 km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just over 3.5 seconds. The vehicle not only features this impressive speed but also comes complete with a plush interior and impressive technological features that will have everyone talking.
The Mercedes-Benz Concept S-Class Coupe
This concept car carries a price tag of over $2 million, but that’s what people get with a concept car, along with a fancy ride, of course. This vehicle also features a top speed of over 300 km/h and comes complete with a similarly powerful engine, a unique interior design, and enough lights and advanced features on the inside to impress almost everyone. Perhaps the price tag is still the most impressive features about this ride.
