New Mercedes S-Class spied with less camo

 New Mercedes S-Class spied with less camo
2013/2014 Mercedes S-Class prototype spy photo

Our spies have been on the prowl and they have caught the best shots yet of the new 2013/2014 Mercedes S-Class. The latest shots show a prototype that is wearing the least amount of camouflage that we have seen.

It reveals a bit more of the of the grille, headlights and bumper that make up the front fascia. The design was thought to be following in the vein of the styling seen on the F125 and F800 concepts, but it seem the idea has been scrapped. Looking particularly at the grille, we can see it strikes a similar pose to the F700 Research Vehicle that was first unveiled way back in 2007.

Engine options are expected to mirror the current model, albeit with some updates and modifications that will improve fuel efficiency and emissions. These should include a 250 CDI, a S350 CDI, a S300 Bluetec hybrid and S400 Bluetec hybrid. The S500 (aka S550), S600, S63 AMG and S65 AMG are also set to be retained in the line-up.

Following the unveiling of the S-Class sedan, we should expect a long-wheelbase sedan and a coupe just like the current generation. But they will also be joined by a cabriolet that replaces the current CL-class and an ultra-luxurious Pullman that replaces the Maybach brand.

HUDSON88 I was expecting to see some side body changes similar to the CLS, CL, C classes and I don't see them in these pictures, unless this is a tease car body and the real changes to the body will become available to see, the closer it comes to delivery to dealers. I always look to see what upgrades or new technology put into the 2013-14 S Class. If they make it too much like 2010-12, that would be a shame, as MBZ has always been a leader in innovations. I hope they make the Ocean Drive (that would be a real winner for MBZ)

Are they doing the samething they did with the SLK & SL and do a MAJOR face-lift/re-engineering/renovation (in building terms) of the current platform and call it a new platform with the S-Class??? Or did they really make a completely new car but decided to follow the Porsche theology of car design!!?? Kind of a let down. Think of all the possibilities... I hate the pudgy cheek look of the bumper they are doing to all the newer models...gives more incentive to pay extra for the AMG sports-package. Let's see what innovations they did to re-work the S-Class.

This looks so ordinary. They really had the chance to take their flagship to the next level and right now I'm not seeing it. Same as the A-Class. If they wanna sell more cars and regain their position of market leadership, why didn't they give us the A-Class concept car!!!

I was expecting it to look like the F700 concept. Appearantly it won't be that innovative. I'm not hoping anything unexpected like we seen back in 2005.

Doesn't look very revolutionary. More like a face-lift.

The whole world are waiting to see what technologies and new innovations the S class is going to have. S class has always been a lesson for all car makers.

From the pics the outline of the headlights and side profile resembles those of F125 and headlights definitely resembles the new A- class; still hard to tell how it will turn out
