The 4.6-liter V-8 puts out a load of power (455 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque), and yet that potency gets lost in translation. The gas pedal is spongy, the steering drowsy. The S550 is a bore to drive.

Ultimately the place you want to be is the passenger-side rear, drowsing or sending e-mails. Let’s just hope that your chauffeur isn’t doing the same thing up front.
