When Mercedes works on a new generation for one of their models, we can all rest assured that the AMG version to match will follow right behind it. Such is the case with the next-generation S-Class, as the sedan variant was just revealed days ago.
Our spy photographers have caught the future S-Class AMG during a testing session at the Nürburgring racetrack, wearing the same light camouflage as the normal non-AMG cars. As you can see, when compared to the standard S-Class, the AMG version has received bigger air intakes, marked side sills and a new rear bumper with a covered up diffuser. This prototype is still missing the quad tailpipes; but don’t worry, they will undoubtedly show up on the production version S-Class AMG.
The future Mercedes S-Class AMG will be powered by an AMG twin turbo 5.5-liter V-8 engine that will deliver between 536 and 550 horsepower.
Expect to see the new generation Mercedes S-Class AMG launched sometime in 2013.
Updated 05/20/2013: Now that we have seen the official images of the new S-Class, is time to imagine what the AMG version will look like. Today, we have created a rendering for you that may help you imagine what the next S63 AMG may look like. Full story
With falling sales and stiff competition from the BMW 7-Series and the Audi A8, Mercedes is looking to revamp its S-Class line for the 2014 model year. The model has been caught testing in many times and was teased even more, but today Mercedes finally unveiled in all its glory.
As expected, the 2014 S-Class adopted the same design language we have seen in all the recently launched Mercedes models, which was started by the 2010 Mercedes F800 Style Concept. Translated, this means the new S-Class received sharper lines, a sportier front fascia, a larger grille and a redesigned rear end.
The model grew in size, so it now offers improved interior room where the passengers can enjoy the highest-quality materials, luxurious wood trim, a metallic switchgear and stitched-leather accents.
UPDATE 05/15/2013: The new Mercedes S-Class finally made its world debut today at the Airbus A380 delivery center in Hamburg, Germany.

Later today, Mercedes will drop the official details on the new S-Class sedan, but our spy photographers were busy too. They managed to catch the S-Class Coupe testing in Hamburg, Germany.
Even though the prototype caught testing was heavily camouflaged, it is easy to see the coupe version will be almost identical to the four-door model. It will get a more prominent front grille, new headlamps, and sportier and more elegant lines than last year’s model. Of course, the coupe version will look a little bit sportier, thanks to the lack of the rear doors.
Under the hood, we anticipate seeing the same lineup found in the sedan, including: a 3.0-liter V-6 turbo-diesel engine that delivers 255 horsepower; a 4.7-liter turbocharged gasoline V-8 with 449 horsepower; and a hybrid version that will combine a 3.5-liter gasoline V-6 and an electric motor for a total output of 302 horsepower.

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.
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.

The new-generation Mercedes S-Class will be making its world debut on May 15th, in Hamburg, Germany and it comes with lots of good news. Along with the sedan version, the new S-Class will also include new coupe and convertible version, but also a new limousine that will replace the old Maybach brand.
The new model - known as the S600 Pullman - was caught testing last week, and based on those spy shots, we have created a rendering that will help you get an idea on what to expect from the next model.
Spy shots revealed that the new S600 Pullman will be about 6 to 12 inches longer than the standard S-Class, thanks to the longer B-pillars and significantly longer rear doors. Under the hood, we expect the next S600 Pullman to get a twin-turbocharged V-12 engine that will deliver about 600 horsepower. Rumors suggest we will also see a hybrid version a few months after the gasoline model arrives on the market.
Expect the new Mercedes S600 Pullman to arrive a few months after the standard S-Class arrives on the market.
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!
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.
Just yesterday we brought you the first spy shots of the upcoming coupe 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.
