The AMG S-Class Coupe has standard NECK-PRO Front Head Restraints, which use a specially designed headrest to protect the driver and front passenger from whiplash.

An active infrared night vision system optional on the AMG S-Class Coupe helps the driver to more easily detect people, animals or other objects in front of the vehicle at night.

The AMG S-Class Coupe has a standard Surround View Camera to allow the driver to see objects all around the vehicle on a screen. The Aventador only offers a rear monitor and front and rear parking sensors that beep or flash a light. That doesn’t help with obstacles to the sides.
The AMG S-Class Coupe’s blind spot warning system uses digital cameras monitored by computer to alert the driver to moving objects in the vehicle’s blind spots where the side view mirrors don’t reveal them. The Aventador doesn’t offer a system to reveal objects in the driver’s blind spots.
To help make backing safer, the AMG S-Class Coupe’s cross-path warning system uses wide-angle radar in the rear bumper to alert the driver to vehicles approaching from the side, helping the driver avoid collisions. The Aventador doesn’t offer a cross-path warning system.
The AMG S-Class Coupe’s driver alert monitor detects an inattentive driver then sounds a warning and suggests a break. According to the NHTSA, drivers who fall asleep cause about 100,000 crashes and 1500 deaths a year. The Aventador doesn’t offer a driver alert monitor.
The AMG S-Class Coupe has standard Mercedes-Benz Emergency Call, which uses a global positioning satellite (GPS) receiver and a cellular system to remotely unlock your doors if you lock your keys in, help track down your vehicle if it’s stolen or send emergency personnel to the scene if any airbags deploy.

The Aventador doesn’t offer a brake assist feature.
The front and rear suspension of the AMG S-Class Coupe uses air springs for a smoother, controlled ride than the Aventador, which uses coil springs. Air springs maintain proper ride height and ride more smoothly.
The AMG S-Class Coupe has a standard automatic front and rear load leveling suspension to keep ride height level with a heavy load or when towing. The AMG S-Class Coupe’s height leveling suspension allows the driver to raise ride height for better off-road clearance and then lower it again for easier entering and exiting and better on-road handling. The Aventador doesn’t offer a load leveling suspension.

An ASSYST PLUS is standard on the AMG S-Class Coupe to save the owner time and money by calculating maintenance intervals for oil changes, spark plug replacement, air filter replacement, tire rotation, radiator flush, brake pad replacement and transmission fluid replacement based on odometer mileage. This takes the guesswork out of keeping your vehicle in top condition and helps it last longer. Lamborghini doesn’t offer a maintenance reminder on the Aventador.
The AMG S-Class Coupe has a standard remote vehicle starting system, so the vehicle can be started from inside the driver's house. This allows the driver to comfortably warm up the engine before going out to the vehicle. The climate system will also automatically heat or cool the interior. The Aventador doesn’t offer a remote starting system.
When three different drivers share the AMG S-Class Coupe, the memory system makes it convenient for all three. Each setting activates different, customized memories for the driver and front passenger’s seat positions, steering wheel position and outside mirror angle. The Aventador doesn’t offer a memory system.
The AMG S-Class Coupe’s standard easy entry system raises the steering wheel and glides the driver’s seat back, making it easier for the driver to get in and out. The Aventador doesn’t offer an easy entry system.

To help drivers avoid possible obstacles, the AMG S-Class Coupe has standard cornering lights to illuminate around corners when the turn signals are activated. The Aventador doesn’t offer cornering lights. The AMG S-Class Coupe also has standard adaptive headlights to illuminate around corners automatically by reading vehicle speed and steering wheel angle.
To shield the driver and front passenger’s vision over a larger portion of the windshield and side windows, the AMG S-Class Coupe has standard extendable sun visors. The Aventador doesn’t offer extendable visors.
The AMG S-Class Coupe’s sun-visors swivel front-to-side to block glare from the side windows. The Aventador’s visors are fixed into the windshield header.
A power rear sunshade is standard in the AMG S-Class Coupe to help block heat and glare for the rear passengers. The Aventador doesn’t offer a rear sunshade.
When the AMG S-Class Coupe is put in reverse, the passenger rearview mirror tilts from its original position. This gives the driver a better view of the curb during parallel parking maneuvers. Shifting out of reverse puts the mirror into its original position. The Aventador’s mirror doesn’t automatically adjust for backing.
The AMG S-Class Coupe has standard automatic dimming rear and side view mirrors which automatically darken quickly when headlights shine on them, keeping following vehicles from blinding or distracting the driver. The Aventador has an automatic rear view mirror, but its side mirrors don’t dim.

On extremely cold winter days, the AMG S-Class Coupe’s optional heated steering wheel provides comfort, allowing the driver to steer safely and comfortably before the car heater warms up. The Aventador doesn’t offer a heated steering wheel.
The AMG S-Class Coupe has standard massaging front seats in order to maximize comfort and eliminate fatigue on long trips. Massaging seats aren’t available in the Aventador.
The AMG S-Class Coupe’s standard dual zone air conditioning allows the driver and front passenger to choose two completely different temperatures so people with different temperature preferences won’t have to compromise. This makes both the driver and front passenger as comfortable as possible. The Aventador doesn’t offer dual zone air conditioning.
To keep a safe, consistent following distance, the AMG S-Class Coupe offers an optional Active Distance Assist Distronic, which alters the speed of the vehicle without driver intervention.
