2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Pullman spied for the first time

Considered a Maybach successor

These are the first spy photos with the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Pullman which will arrive in May next year based on a recent report.

The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class was launched a couple of months ago and can be had with either a 5116mm or a 5246mm length. These two will be joined next year by an even longer Maybach-replacing variant which will have an overall length between 152-304mm longer than the standard model.

A lot of the added length will be in the wheelbase, as seen in these spy shots which show a prototype with considerably longer rear doors and C-pillars. As a reminder, the standard model has a 3035mm wheelbase while the LWB gets its wheelbase stretched to 3165mm. Previous reports have indicated the model will be even longer, with an overall length of almost six meters and a wheelbase of up to 3515mm.

Power of the S-Class Pullman will allegedly come from a twin-turbo V12 engine outputting around 600 bhp (447 kW), while a hybrid variant is likely to follow a few months after the gasoline-powered model comes out.

I'm sure there will be a long wheelbase version, with a window between the front and rear doors, as on the original Pullman. Nice car; trust it'll do much better than the Maybach.

With a potential wheelbase of 3,515mm long, one could park a Peugeot 107, Toyota Aygo, Volkswagen Up!, Seat Mii, or any other city car within!

Pullman should be much longer than this one (over 6 meters). This is probably a Mercedes 600 Grosser.

Times change. What worked yesterday won't neccessarily work today. If this is a direct Maybach replacement then it will fail. I will put my house on that.

@ BOOGIE_WOOGIE, it won't fail. The Maybach failed because of their marketing strategy, they tried to make it too exclusive and refused money from clients they deemed "unworthy". If they sell the Pullman to everyone who wants to buy the car, it will be a success.

Can't wait to see this. I hope they finish it with nice details to separate it from the regular car

Guess this will be the armored "Guard" version of the S-Class.

what has that got to do with it? This is just a regular car, although Mercedes do armoured versions of every type of S class
