Two days ago, we took delivery of the new Vossen Project 2014 S 550 at a launch event at Mercedes Benz of Coral Gables. We had a great time at the event and of course seeing all the new Mercedes models, in particular the new S-class. This was a special order with the hard to find rear seat package plus. It is also equipped with the Sport Package. The craftsmanship of this vehicle is utterly stunning. It seemed bespoke and at a level on par with a Rolls Royce or Bentley in regards to the interior. The materials are first rate and everything flowed pretty well including the huge dual screens up front. They seemed to frame them to look like an iPad including the rear screens so they seemed familiar. The graphics were also first rate and the Command system was pretty easy to use, the biggest issue was there seemed to be 800,000,000 ways to adjust everything! The rear seat package plus is really awesome and perfect for someone who rather be driven or wants their passengers in arguably the best rear seats around. This vehicle also has cooled rear cup holders and a fridge that seems to fit three wine bottles.
The vehicle of course has internet/wi-fi so it will be a perfect mobile office at car events. The seats have seemingly unlimited adjustments front and rear. Though unnecessary for Miami weather, the vehicle has a heated package and I believe including a heated armrest. The sport package includes a different front, rear, sides. We noticed a rear spoiler is a $500 option on another vehicle so we might add that later, it looked pretty good. Another odd thing is while this has the panoramic roof (and the front sunroof itself is just huge) the entire roof is not black, there is a decently wide strip in the rear the color of the car that we will wrap. We rode in it briefly (full driving review to come) and it felt like riding on a cloud, quiet and beyond comfy. Everyone who has seen the interior never fails to be blown away.
More to come soon!
