The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is often called the ‘best car in world’. But what happens when you want better than the best? If you’re the kind that chases thrills, the Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe will give them to you in the bucket-loads. If you’re the kind that wants even more luxury than what the regular S offers, you can stretch out in the backseat of the Mercedes-Maybach S650. We brought these two variants of the S-Class — the epitome of performance and luxury — together to see what the best versions of the ‘best car in the world’ are like. The S63 isn’t the only grand tourer in this issue, though:
