The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is a series of luxury sedans produced by German automaker Mercedes-Benz, a division of German company Daimler AG. The classification was officially introduced in 1972 with the W116 S-Class, which succeeded previous Mercedes-Benz models dating to the mid-1950s. The S-Class has served as the flagship model for Mercedes for over fifty years in its various incarnations. The S-Class has debuted many of the company’s latest innovations, including drivetrain technologies, interior features, and safety systems (such as the first seatbelt pretensioners). “S-Class” is an anglicisation of “S-Klasse,” a German abbreviation of “Sonderklasse,” which means “special class”. In automotive terms thus refers to “a specially outfitted car”. Although used colloquially for decades, following its official application in 1972, five generations of officially named S-Class sedans have been produced.
