This might be the most accurate rendering of the 2013 Mercedes S Class
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
It has been a long time since we reported anything on the new S Class. The good chaps at Benzboost have presented us their idea of what the new S Class might look like.
We must say that there is a strong possibility that the new S Class might actually look exactly like this rendering.
The renderings feature a single frame with central air intakes and additional vents on the outer area of the front fascia. The headlamp design is very futuristic with incorporate LED daytime running lights. An additional LED strip below the headlamps makes it look more upmarket.
The side profile is very chiseled making it very dynamic and sporty. At the rear, we have an uber cool set of rectangular exhaust which we guess would be limited to the AMG model. The rear tail lamps have a leaf shaped design which make the rear look very bulbous.
How can we be sure this is close to the real deal? Autoblog has published a few spyshots with the new S Class wearing an almost see though camouflage thus giving away a few design details. As one can see in the rendering, the new S Class will don the new Mercedes design philosophy that started with the A- and B-Class vehicles.
Codenamed W222, the next generation Mercedes S-Class has been caught on a number of occasions. It is expected to debut some unheard-of technologies and all new COMMAND system. By the looks of thing the S Class seems to be ready to make its international debut late this year. The long wheelbase model (V222) is expected to come out next year. We can expect Mercedes Benz India to launch the new S-Class in long wheelbase form about six months from the time of its international arrival.
