Emirates Taps Jeremy Clarkson To Promote S-Class Inspired First Class Cabins 13

Flying can be a stressful experience so Emirates Airline has enlisted the help of Mercedes-Benz to create a relaxing first class cabin which draws inspiration from the S-Class.

According to Mercedes, the partnership began in 2014 when teams from both companies meet each other in England and discussed the latest design trends and innovations. The aircraft interior designers were particularly impressed with the new S-Class and decided to incorporate some of its ideas and features into the first class cabins of its Boeing 777 fleet.

The end result has been designed to set “new standards in the aviation industry in terms of luxury and comfort.” As part of this initiative, Emirates offers a fully enclosed first class suite which is spacious and offers unrivaled levels of privacy. Mercedes says the materials, workmanship, and controls were all inspired by the S-Class and they build on other innovations such as virtual windows and reclining zero-gravity seats.

As part of the partnership, passengers who are flying in the new first class cabins can be chauffeured to and from the Dubai airport in an S-Class.

In a statement, Emirates Airline President Sir Tim Clark said “We are extremely delighted with our new suite, which offers unprecedented levels of privacy, comfort and luxury. Our cooperation with Mercedes-Benz brings together two global brands, both of which stand for innovation, quality, luxury and comfort.”

Maybach S650 Not Enough? Check Out The New Brabus 900 12

Mercedes recently upgraded its top-of-the-line Maybach S-Class sedan with the twin-turbo V12 from the AMG S65, giving the big limousine all the power and torque that you could ask for. Still, there are some who may want even more. And for those individuals, there’s Brabus.

The Benz tuner extraordinaire has released a new series of modifications for the updated S-Class, chief among them the Maybach S650 – which Brabus has cranked up to 888 horsepower.

To get there, Brabus bored out the engine from 6.0 liters to 6.3 and fitted new turbochargers, crankshaft, pistons, connecting rods, and exhaust system. To go with the engine enhancements, it’s also offering a full array of visual and aerodynamic upgrades, as well as an interior customized to the buyer’s taste.

The headline figure here, though, is a 0-62 time of just 3.7 seconds (limited largely by the traction of the rear driven wheels) and a top speed in excess of 217 miles per hour. Not bad for a sedan weighing the better part of three tons.

Brabus will apply the same upgrades to the “standard” S600 and the AMG S65 which share the same engine architecture. But if that all seems like too much to handle, it’s also released performance upgrades for the (relatively) smaller engines on offer. It’ll tune the S560 up to 650 hp and the AMG S63 to 691 hp. With four-wheel traction (and a lighter engine), we wouldn’t be surprised to see the latter version achieve even more impressive performance.

Strange Mercedes S-Classes Spied With Flared Wheel Arches 3

It’s not unusual for car manufacturers to test weird and wacky creations with no intention of turning them into production cars, but these two Mercedes-Benz S500s have caught our attention.

For the most part, the two prototypes seen secured on a transport truck, appear like any other S-Class. However, on further inspection, you’ll notice that both have been equipped with flared wheel arches which resemble something you’d see from Liberty Walk, not Mercedes-Benz.

It is difficult to know what the German automaker is working on but it is possible that these fenders have been fitted to help the car accommodate a set of wider wheels. If that’s the case, then it is possible that they offer an early taste of a future S-Class AMG model, potentially a straight-six model dubbed the S43 AMG.

What is also interesting about the two prototypes is that they’re based around the pre-facelift S-Class and could, therefore, be leftover mules from testing of the updated S-Class.

Do you have any thoughts about the prototypes? Let us know below!
