Built as a limited edition, high performance model and on the platform of Mercedes-Benz's flagship S-Class, the S55 AMG is one of the most coveted, luxury sports sedans. And there seemed to be little room for improvement after 2002's awe-dropping model.
But Mercedes did improve the car in 2003, most notably adding more power ("as if it needed it," in the words of one reviewer. The S55 AMG was still powered by a hand-built 5.4-liter V8, but a positive-displacement Lysholm supercharger increased its output from 354 horsepower and 391 pounds-feet in 2002 to 493 horsepower and 516 pounds-feet in 2003.
Other standard features in 2003 included active suspension, 18-inch AMG Monoblock alloy wheels with high-performance tires, ventilated front seats, AMG aerodynamic enhancements, and a trunk-mounted CD changer.

The S600 was built on a four-year-old platform by the time the 2003 model year rolled out, but it still remained one of the most coveted luxury automobiles among well-heeled car buyers. There were minor cosmetic changes to the premier vehicle in the S-Class lineup in 2003, adding to its "sleek and aerodynamic" appearance.
The S600 has a 5.5 liter, V12 engine that produces 493 horsepower. Because of the V12 engine, the S600 was described both as "fast traffic" and "the ultimate in Mercedes-Benz luxury and power" by drivers.
The biggest changes in 2003 revolved around technological additions, most of which were safety-related. 2003 was the first year S-class vehicles were equipped with a system that could detect impending collisions and prepare the driver and passengers to get through it as safely as they possibly can.
