According to the latest comparison test between A8(435PS),750(450PS)and Panemara S(420ps) from Autozeitung.

If anyone can add A8 4.0T and 750, I will continue add performance figures for them.

A8 has less power but still faster, and this S klass have nothing new compared to A8. I prefer sporty dynamic thats why I would choose A8.

The new W222 S-Klasse. And this is a big improvement over the previous one! The exterior design of the W221 was simply unproportional with defective and tasteless lines... But W222 is an opposite! Now it looks elegant, with clear lines and shape, fitting lights, and those rims at the second pic! This is just a prosperity of design. The interior though, was always at the highest level. And, technically, I think there is a way to develop!

If earlier, I disrespected the S-Klasse, now I'm just excited with it! If earlier, I'd take an Audi A8 over S W221, now without doubts - Benz. Considering all the luxury cars, (although, I've never been the enthusiast of this type of vehicles), the only car from the same league that I might take over this Benz is the previous Quattroporte.. but shamefully, the car got ruined for me with new model, and so the S-Class gets my favourite.

It is the king of luxury vehicles again! Can't wait till the AMG arrive!

Hmm, aren't all these S-cars equipped with 4Matic AWD? I see it is RWD?
