2014 Tesla Model S vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz S550! - Head 2 Head Ep. 54
On this episode of Head 2 Head, the newest luxury heavyweight takes on the
reigning champ. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has ruled the luxury roost since
it created the segment decades ago. However, Elon Musk's revolutionary
Tesla Model S has single handedly disrupted the established luxury paradigm
and has recently outsold the mighty S-Class. What's most amazing is that
