Oh I don't know...
Full (and I mean full) leather interior that seems to hold up better that the regular interior. Sometimes I just like to open the door and breathe in the nuances of that wonderful interior.
Stouter drivetrain. It's not just the engine that's different, from the V12 to the diff, everything is more heavy duty. Even the exhaust is larger.
Xenon lights standard. I don't really understand this envy, but then again, my car already has them.
ADS standard. For the folks that don't have this suspension or have NEVER even ridden in one, but still feel the need to comment; I can only say from personal experience its not that tough to service and the ride complements the chassis on the highway for comfort and stiffens it up a bit for cornering. All at the flick of a switch. I believe the front sway bar is bigger.
Its faster and smoother. Don't believe me, ride in one.
They are WAY more rare than the regular 6 or 8 cylinder cars. I've been daily driving mine for 16 years and still haven't seen another one yet.
The V12s were built to be special and they are. Thank you MB.
