The Mercedes-Benz S550 4Matic is packed with assistance and safety systems that keep the car stable on the road and make it one of the safest limousines ever built. And yet, there is a way to drift the exclusive luxury sedan and make it fun.
When you buy a 4Matic Mercedes, you do it especially because you want your car to be safe. 99.9% of the S-Class owner have never thought about exposing it to any drifting danger.
Unexpectedly, the all-wheel drive is not a party pooper. Not for the Benz anyway. An Audi S4 and a Dodge Charger Hellcat join the ice and snow party on the racetrack.
The Benz and the Audi were shod with all-season tires, while the Dodge wore Bridgestone Blizzak rubber. The three brave drivers pushed the cars to the max on the frozen racing venue in Michigan. The daredevils make the final plan and onto the frozen playground they go.
In the final stage of the drifting competition, the Audi took on the Mercedes. The S4 had some trouble coming out of the snow after it smashed into a snowbank on the side. Therefore, unexpectely, the undisputed king of drifting is the Mercedes-Benz S-Class 4Matic!
