Be Chauffeur-Driven In The “Best Luxury Car On The Planet” – The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class – By Royale Limousines!

Royale Limousines has taken delivery of a 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class  – billed by last week as the “best  luxury car on the planet” – and the car is now available for chauffeured hire in Sydney within the company’s Mercedes pool.


The 2014 S-Class received four awards at this year’s Vehicle Dynamics International magazine’s Awards – including “Car of the Year’.  It has the most comfort, dynamics and safety features of any car in the world, according to Torquenews.

Among the car’s myriad features are a startlingly effective seven-hue ambient light package (in subtle blues, red, purples, oranges, etc) that dramatically changes the feel of the cockpit; an integrated WLAN WiFi hotspot; front seats not only heated, but cooled; adjustable seat-cushion lengths to support longer legs; and cameras that capture a 360-degree view of the car on the dashboard, including an aerial image.

As a sample fare, a chauffeured transfer from the Sydney CBD to the airport is $110, one-way*. This is the standard fare for all Mercedes in the Royale pool; no surcharge is applied for the 2014 S-Class.  Customers booking a Mercedes can request the 2014 S-Class and Royale will assign it if available.  All Mercedes in the Royale fleet are S-Class.  To book: Call Royale Limousines’ 24/7 reservations centre 1800 ROYALE (769 253) or book online at

Royale is the only luxury chauffeured vehicle operator in Australia to number the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class in its fleet. It is operating the S350 long wheel base model.

“The car is receiving some great feedback from customers for its luxe feel, smooth handling and spacious interior,” said Royale Limousines managing director, John Bartolotta. “This car has presence.”

Other Interesting Points about the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class:

·         Despite increased levels of safety & technology, there has been no increase in weight in 20 years.

·         5km of cabling in the vehicle.

·         Drag co-efficient of just 0.24, making this the quietest vehicle in this class.

·         First car in the world to be lit entirely by LED lighting, over 500 in fact, 300 of which are outside the car. Not a single conventional globe is used.

·         Burmester Sound System with 13 speakers and 590 Watt output, designed exclusively for the new S-Class.

·         The sunroof adjusts its angle on the go to reduce noise and improve efficiency.

·         To run all the systems on the new S-Class requires 30 million lines of computer code.

    A nice and short description of the car that offers the maximum. Mercedes S is a car in which comfort both, a passinger and a chauffeur can enjoy.
