Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
The new Mercedes-Benz S Class is easily the most anticipated car to be launched in the years to come and that is because the S is expected to push the industry benchmark to the levels never seen before.

We already brought to you a few videos of the upcoming Mercedes S Class during its testing cycles. One of those came from our very own reader Nithin Kumar from Dubai.
Once again, the Stuttgart based carmaker’s flagship sedan was caught testing in the hallowed Nurburgring Nordshleife circuit, a track which serves as an ultimate test of a car’s dynamic limits. As you can see in the video, more than one test mule is being used, though the exact number is uncertain.
The test cars might have had different setups or tires. This test could be used to optimize the suspension and chassis settings, steering and stabilization programs or even to zero in on the right set of rubbers.
