Mercedes Benz opted for Victoria Harbour as the ideal setting for the Hong Kong launch of its four new S-class models. With riders on the 60-metre high Observatory Wheel looking on, some 800 specially-invited guests enjoyed lavish entertainment in an exclusive marquee as the high-end German motor marque paraded the latest additions to its range.
With the spotlight on the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Mercedes-Maybach S-Class models, a DJ, a dance troupe and an orchestral ensemble did their very best to convey the level of technological innovation and sensorial comfort embodied in these new vehicles. Of particular interest to local motor enthusiasts, of course, was the newly Cantonese-friendly Linguatronic voice control system, while the level of autonomous on-road assistance that comes as standard clearly takes us a step or two closer to driverless cars joining the Hong Kong contraflow.
Introducing the new range, Andreas Binder, President and Chief Executive of Mercedes Benz Hong Kong, said: “For me, one of the absolute highlights of these new models is the Magic Body Control system, which scans the road in front and adjusts the damping of each wheel ahead of any bump. Truly magical.”
