Bodyboard down the Olifants, sleep in a bedouin tent, hike a pristine trail
Rent a Mercedes S Class for the Day
Glide through Cape Town in the grand style and status of a Mercedes-Benz
Travel can be a tedious thing, even with the promise of a touchdown in the Mother City dangling seductively in the foreground. Plane rides make you tired, uncomfortable and generally leave you feeling a bit worse for wear.
So, why not iron out any wrinkles from the journey with an arrival synonymous with grand style and luxury? In Cape Town, you can rent one of three Mercedes Benz S Classes for the day, week or much longer (with or without a chauffeur behind the wheel). And quite simply, there’s no better way to make your stay in the Mother City move along any more smoothly.
About the Mercedes-Benz S Class Range
In the world of car ranges, there is one that, for years, has stood head and shoulders above the rest. A range that embodies power, luxury, comfort and style. A range that has debuted so many of the motoring world’s most important safety features, that a separate article is needed just to list them.
It’s the range that all luxury saloons strive to parallel: The Mercedes S Class.
Forming the foundations of this extraordinary family tree are the Merc S350, a machine powered by a smooth and quiet V6, and the S600, a vehicle powered by a twin turbo V12 motor that makes the car feel like it’s being pushed along by a force of nature. Both exude grace, and both boast the kind of cutting-edge technology typical of Mercedes.
And then for the last word in prestige and luxury, there is the indomitable S65 AMG L. With even more power from Mercedes’s handmade V12 than the aforementioned S600, this limo-style ride can make pavement tremble with a mere pump of the accelerator. Not to mention, the spec looks like it was sent here from another planet to show humans what cars can be. The stretched wheel base means the back seats can recline with plenty of legroom, the rear of the car has electric sun blinds fitted all around for privacy, and if thirsty, you can enjoy a drink from the fridge in the back. What’s more, two TVs with wireless headphones provide the ultimate in in-car entertainment, massage seats make journeys even more relaxing and one of the most advances systems of climate control is at your fingertips. This really is a special machine.
Where to rent a Mercedes-Benz S Class in Cape Town
You can hire these luxurious limos and saloons from Status Luxury Vehicles (SLV), CapeTownMagazine.com’s preferred supplier. Similarly, have a business meeting or deal to conclude? Why not send one of SLV’s chauffeurs in a Mercedes S Class to fetch the dealmakers. Keen for a luxurious cruise for two through the Cape Winelands? Relax in the back of a Benz, and drink in the scenic vineyards feeling like a celebrity.
