Inching closer to production

Mercedes is putting the finishing touches on the 2013 S-Class.

Set to be unveiled later this year, the model has an evolutionary design with a larger grille, a sculpted hood and LED-infused headlights. Further back, there's a dual exhaust system and taillights that appear to mimic the ones used on the CL-Class.

While our spies couldn't get close enough to snap interior pictures, the model appears slightly larger than its predecessor. This means we expect a more accommodating cabin with premium materials and high-end amenities.

Engine options remain unconfirmed, but will likely include the familiar V6s and V8s that populate the company's lineup. There could also be a plug-in hybrid variant with a 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine and a 60 hp (44 kW / 60 PS) electric motor.

God, I might be alone but need to say that MB should lay off its entire chinese designers because they are way behind BMW and AUDI in designing and styling their cars. I think the current generation looks much better and please stop putting these ugly looking led and guilty looking christmas tree headlights on this expensive cars. they look cheap, Mercedes unless you want to loose your customers. Can't you guys just put regular fog lights made of real crystal glass and not plastic. Not sure why they trying to imitate AUDI (audi made those led lights bigger and with purpose), they need fresh ideas and lay off your """talented""" designers !!! :)

come on, anyone who knows Mercedes grills know that although some have vertical pieces, its only the horizontal slats that are highlighted with chrome, ie. it will bare zero resemblance the the Cadillac's

Agreed but, you must admit at that the shape of the grill along with the shape of the front end of the vehicle, at least with the camo on, make it look like a DTS at first glance. I think the new S is going to be awesome for the record.

I'm sure it will be an amazing car, but there is no denying that the grill (as shown) looks damn near identical to a DTS
