2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class scale model

Debuts next week

Photos depicting a 1:18 scale model of the upcoming 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class have surfaced the Internet, ahead of the car’s official reveal set for May 15.

We already brought spy photos with a completely uncovered S-Class approximately three weeks ago so in terms of design there's very little to expect. Nevertheless, this scale model gives us another perspective as far as styling is concerned for M-B's upcoming flagship model.

A week ago we posted a leaked official photo with the S-Class which we believe showed the model wearing an AMG styling kit as the diecast model seen here looks slightly different and probably reproduces the standard model.

I think this is going to be a tacky looking car. I feel the only people on this planet that like the way this car looks are Americans because they have a warped sense of reality when it comes down to this (no offense, but you just do). It is an incredibly ugly car, no matter how well it will drive, there are alternatives that make a lot more sense. For me Mercedes is heading in the wrong direction with every single model.

Quite an incorrect and prejudicial statement concerning Americans when Mercedes largest market is China.

I have not seen too many Chinese people posting here, but have noticed a lot of Americans defending and applauding whatever Mercedes does and it is wrong. But you are correct in saying it is a prejudical statement, I do that sometimes, makes life bearable.

I agree for the most part. This car is a Luxury Land Yacht that serves the purpose based on comfort and amenities only (which unfortunately most people here only care about) while not being a driver's car at all. It's an overrated car with an overrated market.

@bimmerE36, I'm not buying the performance elitism. Yes it's a land yacht, not a driver's car, and there's nothing wrong with that. Not everyone is an enthusiast and not everyone wants to drive fast, especially the people who will buy this car. They're mostly in their 50's/60's, rich executives who want to get to their big business meetings in comfort. Now that Maybach is gone the S can move up a notch and play its role better than ever.

Sclasses have always been big, bloated, cushy and plush. NEVER has an S been a yacht, though. Extremely capable, they hit the "numbers" a 7 or (now) A8 will. Its just not what it WANTS to do. Dont get it twisted, S class is no Town Car.

No offense to MB fans, but the S class is more about luxury and comfort target then a drivers car. I agree the 7 series is not a comfort cruiser like the S class, but I'll still take it anytime just because it puts s smile on me every time I drive it. There is no right or wrong choice b/w the two, I just prefer a better drivers car.

The speculation on this is getting overrated.

Seems to be the ultimative luxury car. And looks very smooth and elegant without the AMG-Bumper, very nice!
