No other car on the planet combines technological supremacy and ventricle-bursting depreciation like a modern V-12-powered Mercedes-Benz. For the newest take on the formula, the automakers turned all the knobs to 11. First bit of good news: for the first time in longer than anyone would care to admit, that 600 decklid badge reflects reality. The six-liter V-12 turns out 523 horsepower and 612 lb-ft of torque thanks to a pair of turbochargers. It can make autonomous braking decisions at up to 124mph and execute a wide variety of other pre-safe behaviors. Theres a new heads-up display and a gesture-recognition system said to be able to accept common smartphone gestures.
