yeah its a V6, abysmal compared to the 745Li in all respects. Frustration is the only word to describe trying to drive fast in the S350. I do have an S600 but of the W140 variant and its basically undrivable due to the frequency of breakdowns. Mostly just gets taken out once a week by one of our drivers for a wash and minor maintenance etc
back to the S350, I dont drive it often as its usually my driver driving it, taking me to the airport or to a restaurant sorta thing.
Actually, after looking that up, it has 306 hp, which is more than the legendary W109 300SEL 6.3 and W116 450SEL 6.9 and the W126 560SEL, and is on par with the W140 and W220 S500's. So while I guess it shouldn't really have any lack of power, I guess it just boils down to the V6's feeling a bit soulless compared to the snarly wicked-sounding V8's. Might not have as much low-end punch as the V8's either.
