S500 and S65 Coupes Sound Unhappy at Nurburgring

But they should be just fine on the way to the country club.

Too big? Too heavy? Burdened with too much technologythat kills the joy of cornering? It’s hard to tell precisely,but one thing is certain: something is off in the way the new Mercedes-Benz S500and S65 AMG take the famous corners at the Nurburgring track in this video. Sure, they makeit through them smoothly and evenly, but it looks like this driving would lackany excitement or real joy. And while most drivers of these luxury yachts willnever hit the track, shouldn't they have the option to?

Listen to the sound of the newest and priciest Benzes and tell us whatyou think.
