And kick it up a notch. After recent reliability surveys put Benz not exactly at the top of the heap in the luxury market, the new redesigned S-Class has to be nearly perfect, especially with competition from BMW, Audi and Maserati staring it right in the grille. The 2006 S will probably be slightly larger than the current version, with like-minded subtle styling cues and a similar engine range making use of V8 and V12 powerplants. The interior sees an improved Command system and rumor has it an iDrive-esque central control unit will be present to confuse the hell out of users as well. A multi-panel glass roof (thanks, Maybach) will be an option as well, so that your S may double as a solarium or greenhouse for growing your, uh, oregano. Bam!
