On long drives, the Mercedes S55 is a vacation in itself- the seat massages you, the interior is quiet...

The Mercedes S55 is luxury excitement. I never wear anything less formal than a tux when I drive it. I only drive it when I know I'm going to be somewhere scenic with lots of road... mountains, ocean, lunch on a weekend afternoon with my wife.

Why waste the Mercedes S55? Don't treat it lightly. Don't make it an everyday thing. Use another car for that... please!

Maybe it's just me, but I've never been able to drive a car everyday and keep it nice- and I want my Mercedes S55 to be impeccable. I keep it in the garage, I use a dust cover, I get it professionally detailed, and I never drink or eat anything in it.

Of course, that means I don't drive my Mercedes S55 often. It's an ideal, a perfect thing. I take it out for special occasions, like a loved one's graduation, a speaking gig, a weekend romantic getaway.

You won't see me in a Mercedes S55 going to Starbucks, or even to church. No, it's better to have an everyday car, like an H2 or a Saab, for something like that.

But I'll tell you, when I have to take a long drive, like to Vegas or up the coast, the Mercedes S55 is a vacation in itself- the seat massages you, the interior is quiet (when I'm not listening to P Diddy on the humpin' sound system), the ride is smooth, and oh boy does she have some power!

And speaking of the humpin' sound system, one other special feature of the Mercedes S55, which you may or may not choose to use, is the ability, when driving through exclusive parts of town, to momentarily disgust older rich people... try playing a little Britney Spears next time you cruise through La Jolla or Del Mar. You'll dig it.
