Mercedes S-Class AMG Sport Edition – it’s another S-Class run-out specialMon, 18 Feb 2013
The Mercedes S-Class AMG Sport Edition is another ‘final’ S Class model with extra equipment as the W221 comes to the end of its shelf life.
The current Mercedes S-Class (W221) has been with us since 2006, despite which it’s still a fine car (and a great secondhand buy), but it’s about to be replaced by an all new S-Class.
That’s why S-Class sales are falling and why Mercedes has rolled out the S-Class Grand Edition and CL Grand Edition to persuade buyers that a new S-Class (or S-Class coupe, in the case of the CL) is still a good place to park a sizeable chunk of change.
But it seems the Grand Edition weren’t enough to clear up the S Class cars Mercedes has left, so we’re being treated to another run-out S-Class in the Mercedes S-Class AMG Sport Edition.
The S-Class AMG Sport gets the understated (and style-improving) AMG body kit and a set of 20″ AMG alloys, an electric panoramic roof, illuminated door sills and a set of painted brake calipers with MB logos.
Inside there’s Black Ash trim, stainless steel pedals, AMG mats, wood and leather steering wheel, Harmon Kardon front seat entertainment with split view screen, reversing camera and keyless.
The S 350 BlueTEC AMg Sport Edition costs from £69,995 and is now on sale, just ahead of the new S-Class’s imminent arrival at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
