To my amazement, the S560 does share a dark side, a mischievous persona that I did not discover in the sedan - maybe I just wasn’t listening. Flip the switch to Sport+ mode and that V8 exhaust comes alive and emits sonic hints to the C 63 and E 63 AMG. Of course, it’s not nearly as loud as the latter two but with the roof down, you have front row seats to this burbly baritone exhaust replete with barks and farts on downshifts. Proper good fun. Have a listen to our Exhaust Notes video above to listen for yourself!
