Leading limousine manufacturer Binz, famed for its extended chassis E-Class limousines, is stepping up a grade with an all new S-Class limousine concept vehicle. The S-Class Mercedes-Benz based Binz is designed to continue that tradition of excellence established since 1936 when Michael Binz first started coachbuilding with Mercedes-Benz sourced chassis units.


Production of the E- Class Binz continues but it is proposed that this will be complimented by the much larger and more sophisticated Binz S-Class, which will initially be available to special order only.

The 6-door S-Class is a real ministerial car that will make an impact wherever it goes. It will have a presence which dominates the road and makes a positive statement about its occupants. With this vehicle, Binz will be bringing European style and class back into a sector that has of late become devalued by pressure from ostentatious over-stretched pseudo-limousines.

Binz’s flawless extension of the chassis – designed with access to full Mercedes- Benz S-Class design and test data – will be complemented by sculpted central doors with electric windows. Inside, passengers will relax on leather seating, and keep their cool thanks to the car’s middle-eastern specification air conditioning. Available options include in-car entertainment from video screens set into the rear of each headrest, and privacy blinds. Power will be courtesy of the S320 V6 common-rail turbo-diesel, with the S350 petrol 24 valve V6 optional.

As always with a Binz the extended chassis S-Class will have a fully functioning engine management system controlling the brakes, steering and suspension, fine tuned to suit not only the extended length of the vehicle but the additional gross weight with a full passenger occupancy.

Binz UK CEO Peter Smith explains, "With the latest incarnation of the S-Class, Mercedes-Benz have raised the bar yet again as regards standards of passenger safety, and ride comfort. To retain full Mercedes-Benz engineering approvals for our extended chassis limousine version, means precise recalibration of interrelated on-board electronics controlling adaptive intelligent ride air suspension, vehicle stability control and now the Pre-Safe occupant restraint facility."

The Binz S-Class is a Limousine that makes no pretensions – it quite simply doesn’t have to, it is the real thing. The S-Class oozes confidence; it has a street presence without having an ungainly stretch or a lurid paint scheme, or an overdose of chrome plated plastic. This is truly travelling first class, in a first class vehicle with first class workmanship.
