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.

How is it ugly? It is so understated and too bland for me, but I wouldn't call it ugly.

I personally think that Mercedes is clearly the leader in Look in most of thier recent cars. Esp on interiors.   I am sure the s63 of this version will look awesome.

I have heard of the problems with s65 with transmission being 5 gear instead of 7 (dont qoute me on this) and some other reasons, that a lot of people who could have had s65, still picked s63.  

 

and s63 drives great! amazing.

 

This generation of S-Class willl also be much more expanded I think, since they stopped producing Maybach!  the new S-Class higher-end editions are supposed to cover for that segment. So it will be amazing!!!

Yep, the 65 AMG's use the 5-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT. The 65's produce up to 738 lb-ft torque from factory, that's a lot for the 7 speed transmission to handle. Having owned a CLS 63 (M156 engine), I'd be glad to have it again. I wish they produced a CLS 65 AMG, now that would be awesome.
