The base 2014 Mercedes-Benz S550 W222 model is powered by a 4.7-liter Double overhead cam (DOHC) V8 petrol engine. This engine can produce up to 449 hp (330 kW) at 5250 rpm and torque of 516 lbs-ft (700 Nm) at 1800 rpm. With all this power, the car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.8 seconds and can reach a top speed of 155 mph (~250 km/h).

The base model is definitely fast. Its 7-speed Shiftable Automatic transmission is smooth and quick, and the acceleration is flawless. And with 17 MPG in city and 25 MPG in highway, you really can’t complain about anything at all.

The only way I could see someone complaining about how this car needs even more power, that person would be a speed junkie who needs even more power than the base model offers. And if you are a speed junkie who wants even more, the Brabus S550 kit is just exactly what you need.

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S550 W222, in the picture above, tuned by Brabus, can produce up to 520 hp (382 kW) and torque of 604 lbs-ft (819 Nm). With all this extra power, thanks to Brabus kit, the car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 4.2 seconds. It also can reach a top speed of 186 mph (~300 km/h). The Brabus Vmax unit also allows you to limit top speed to three levels: 155 mph (~250 km/h), 168 mph (~270 km/h) or 186 mph (~300 km/h).

The price (MSRP) for a base 2014 Mercedes-Benz S550 W222 starts from around 92,900 USD ($).
