Mercedes S-Class

  The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the ultimate reward for a lifestyle shaped by mobility, individuality, success and sophistication. You don't simply decide to buy an S-Class: it comes to you when fate has ordained that your life should take that course. The door closes with a reassuring clunk and you have arrived. This is what makes the car and its predecessors unique among the worlds great sedans. And has done so for more than half a century.

We have brought you many spy shots of the next Mercedes S-Class , but this is the first video that shows the car on public roads. The car is still wearing camouflage, but no need to worry, as we will get to see it in all of its glory in May.

The new 2014 S-Class will feature a new design language inspired by the F800 Style Concept, but at the same time, you should expect some elements from the recently launched models, like the one-piece headlamps with LED daytime running lights we have seen in the new E-Class.

Under the hood, rumors suggest that Mercedes will likely place a revised version of the current engine lineup. This means that customers will be able to choose between a revised twin-turbocharged 4.7-liter V-8 engine with 429 horsepower; a 510-horsepower twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-12; or an AMG twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-8 that delivers somewhere between 536 and 550 horsepower.

Mercedes-Benz S-Class

The revised version of the current-generation Mercedes S-Class has been caught testing many times, including extreme cold-weather conditions. However, the prototype caught today by our spy photographers gives us the best look at the new S-Class to date, as it is almost completely void of all camouflage and our photographers got up close and personal with the car.

The 2014 S-Class will borrow design elements from the F800 Style Concept , making it sharper and a little bit more aggressive. Also, we expect to see the same one-piece headlamps with LED daytime running lights we have seen in the new E-Class .

Under the hood, Mercedes will likely place a revised version of the current engine lineup, which includes a Twin-turbocharged, 4.7-liter V-8 engine with 429 horsepower; a 510-horsepower twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-12; and an AMG twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-8 delivering somewhere between 536 and 550 horsepower.

With Daimler choosing to cut the Maybach brand , there is now a huge gap in the luxury automaker’s line of vehicles. Despite how hard Mercedes tries, it simply cannot compete with super-luxury brands, like Bentley and Rolls-Royce. Well, that was until Mercedes announced a Pullman edition – longer – of the upcoming revised S-Class .

Even with that announcement, we still have no clue when the model will be unveiled or exactly how long it will be. That is, until today, as our slick spy photographers have snapped seven shots of the 600 Pullman and one of those images caught the new S-Class sedan in front of the 600 Pullman. You can clearly see that the 600 Pullman is a good 6 to 12 inches longer than the already-long S-Class. This extra length is thanks to the addition of longer B-pillars and significantly longer rear doors.

We expect to see a twin-boosted V-12 engine under the 600 Pullman’s hood initially, but don’t be shocked to see a hybrid drivetrain to make its way onto the market. We’re not too sure if the Pullman will make it to the U.S.

Stay tuned for more information!

Mercedes S-Class Coupe

We’re all extremely excited to see what Mercedes is hiding under all of the camo on the upcoming S-Class Coupe. For now, however, we will just have to sit around and look at random spy shots that come in. Here we go again, as our spy photographers have caught the S-Class Coupe out playing around.

This time around, however, the S-Class was caught playing in cold, white stuff, also known as “snow,” in Northern Sweden. Unfortunately, these images don’t show us anything that we haven’t seen before, since the S-Class is still heavily camouflaged.

The fact that the S-Class is frolicking around in the snow leads us to believe that this particular model is putting the 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system to the test. We’re pretty sure it handled the snow and ice admirably.

We are still awaiting official details on the 2015 S-Class Coupe, but we’ll bring you more spy shots and information as soon as we get our hands on them.

Mercedes S-Class Coupe

Just yesterday we brought you thefirst spy shots of the upcomingcoupe version of the next-generation Mercedes S-Class . Now the car was taken out for another testing session and our spy photographers were there to catch it again. When compared to the images we brought you yesterday, the ones from today show some close-up images of the car.

As you can see, the S-Class Coupe is wearing an impressive amount of camouflage, but still it is pretty easy to notice the CL-Class’ replacement will be one of the most impressive models offered by Mercedes in years.

The car is features a stunning shape with a wide and muscular body, and the rear lights placed horizontally for an even wider impression.

The coupe version will be built on the same platform as the next-generation S-Class and will be offered with the same drivetrains and technology features as its sedan brother.

Expect the new S-Class Coupe to be unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

Mercedes will soon release the new-generation S-Class onto the market, but Mercedes UK has unveiled a new special-edition based on the current model. The new AMG Sport Edition is based on the most successful S-Class model on the UK market: the S 350 BlueTEC and is priced from £69,995 (around $108,000 at the current exchange rates) on the road.

The new S-Class AMG Sport Edition will be distinguished by AMG front and rear aprons with subtle sill extensions and will be offered with an elegant set of 20-inch AMG alloy wheels in a five-twin-spoke design combined with brake calipers with Mercedes-Benz lettering. The model will also be equipped with a panoramic glass sunroof and illuminated door sills.

The interior will be updated with a Black Ash Wood trim, a wood- and leather-trimmed steering wheel, studded sports pedals finished in stainless steel and AMG-branded floor mats. Standard features will include technologies like a reversing camera and Keyless Go, Harmon/Kardon Front Seat Entertainment and a Comand multimedia system featuring 14 high-performance speakers and additional amplifiers, a set of headphones and remote control, and DAB digital radio.

Mercedes S-Class Coupe

We have known that Mercedes was preparing a coupe version for the next generation S-Class for quite some time now, but this is the first time we have actually caught the car out for a testing session. The car was spotted at a Mercedes facility, and as you can see, it is in a stage of camouflage that we normally never see on a Mercedes prototype.

With this kind of camouflage, Mercedes is trying to hide the stunning shape of the new car, but it is pretty clear the body will look wide and muscular. Also, you can see the rear lights are placed horizontally, giving the impression of an even wider body. When viewed from the side, the future S-Class looks a little like a Chevrolet Camaro, very powerful but still very timeless.

The next S-Class Coupe will share platform and drivetrains with the upcoming S-Class and will, of course, be stuffed with all the new technical features already announced for the S-Class.

Expect the new S-Class Coupe to be unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show and hit the market for the 2015 model year.

Mercedes-Benz S-Class

It’s been a while since we last brought you any spy shots of the next-generation Mercedes S-Class , but today our spy photographers caught it one more time during cold-weather testing. As you can see, this prototype has dropped most of its camouflage, letting us see more from the new luxury sedan.

Expect the new S-Class to feature design elements we have already seen in the new E-Class , including the new one-piece headlamps with LED daytime running lights. There will also be design elements from the 2010 Mercedes F800 Style Concept , making the new S-Class sharper and a little bit more aggressive.

Under the hood, the new S-Class will get modified versions of the current engine lineup: a twin-turbo 4.7-liter V-8 engine producing 429 horsepower, a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-12 delivering 510 horsepower, and an AMG twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-8 getting between 536 and 550 horsepower.

Expect the new-generation Mercedes S-Class to be unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

Mercedes S-Class Coupe

Along with the standard sedan version, the next-generation Mercedes S-Class will also receive a coupe version that will replace the current CL-Class. The coupe version hasn’t been taken out for a testing session yet, but we do know from the sedan version that it will receive a muscular appearance with an aggressive front end, flanks with a prominent drop line, and a rounded turret line.

There are still no details on the engines the upcoming S-Class Coupe will carry under the hood, but Mercedes did confirm that it will take on the Bentley Continental GT . This statement makes us believe Mercedes will offer up a choice of V-12 and V-8 engines, with output levels north of the 550-horsepower mark.

The new Mercedes S-Class Coupe will be unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. It will be followed by an S-Class Convertible version a few months after.

The new 2014 E-Class will be the first Mercedes model to feature the company’s new fully autonomous system called Steering Assist. This new system works in conjunction with the Distronic Plus system and it is being effective to speeds up to 124 mph.

The Distronic Plus adaptive control system helps the driver to keep the vehicle at the desired distance from the vehicle in front, even in stop and go traffic. With the latest additions, once the driver is activating the Distronic Plus, the Steering Assist is also being activated. This new system supports the driver with lateral lane guidance. On straight roads and even in gentle bends, it helps the driver to remain in the center of the lane by generating steering torque.

Watch the video to see how the company’s new Steering Assist system works and expect to see it in all the upcoming Mercedes models.
