2001 Mercedes Benz S500
Imagine driving the 2001 Mercedes Benz S500 sedan up the Sierra
to Lake Tahoe. Imagine effortless cornering. Imagine unearthly quiet even
when punching the 5-liter V8 to breeze by trucks. Imagine fully appointed
comfort, new technology, and safety. There are times when reality actually
lives up to your imagination. This is one of those times.
Among the many new features of this superlative car include:
Infrared Reflecting Glass
Infrared-reflecting glass for the front, rear and side windows helps reduce
radiant heat penetration and keeps the cabin cooler.
ABC (Active Body Control) Suspension
ABC is a revolutionary active suspension system that uses electronically
controlled, high-pressure hydraulics to help keep your car's body
remarkably level, even during the most spirited driving.
Optional Integrated Roller Blinds
To help maintain a cool, ambient temperature on hot days, the power rear
window sunshade can now be complemented with optional manual roller-type
sunshades on the side windows.
Distronic Adaptive Cruise Control
The world's first adaptive cruise control, Distronic, uses a radar sensor
in the grille to pinpoint the location of a moving car ahead of you. It can
automatically adjust the throttle, and even apply up to 20% of the car's
braking power, to help you maintain the following distance you have selected.
