The Mercedes Benz S-Class designation comes from the German word sonderklasse which means special class. Special indeed, a Mercedes Benz S-Class is the sort of car that will have you deliberately avoiding the tunnel through the mountain, so that you a take the longer scenic route around it. It would be easy to assert that every car ever produced contains traces of Mercedes Benz DNA in its lineage, being that before MB, there really was no such thing as the car.

Over the years Mercedes Benz has been a standard-bearer for technology, design, innovation, safety and performance, and if other Mercedes models rate a ten on the "auto-fabulous" meter, then the S-Class recalibrates the meter to eleven. Take, for example, the awe inspiring roar from the 2012 CLS63 AMG's 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 hurtling around the aforementioned mountain. The AMG sport package dials up an already spirited twin-turbocharged mill to 550 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. While the lane-departure and blind-spot monitoring systems feature automatic brake intervention, which acts like a benevolent co-pilot in charge of safety. A new split-view display screen also debut this year, allowing the driver and front-seat passenger to view separate on-screen content.

By simply upgrading the existing stock factory installed air filters from any of the select vehicles listed below with K&N's 33-2474 high-flow air filters, that performance meter can be dialed-up even further. K&N air filters have less restriction than disposable paper air filters so your engine doesn't have to work as hard to bring in clean air. Additionally, these will be the last air filters you'll ever buy, being that these replacement air filters are backed with K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty.

Plus, based on normal driving conditions, you won't even need to think about cleaning your K&N 33-2474 air filters for up to 50,000 care-free miles. When it's time to clean the filters they are easy to wash and reuse. This air filter part, 33-2474, contains two K&N air filters. It is a direct replacement for the OEM double-panel air filter already in the car, making the installation procedure identical. So, by investing exactly the same amount of time and effort as it would take to swap out the stock air filter, you could be increasing horsepower and acceleration, while maintaining the high levels of filtration your Mercedes Benz S-Class deserves.
