Almost every car mag and website has been reporting a lot about the new Merc S Class. Frankly, I was quite tired of waiting to lay my eyes on some spy pics of the car. The great news is that a Germany based website, Mercedes-Fans.de , have managed to take pics of an almost undisguised test mule of the upcoming flagship sedan. Codenamed W222, the new S-Class will be unveiled in mid 2013.
It is being said that the next generation of sedan is new to the most minutest of the details. Looking at the spy shots, it can be said that the car continues to be almost similar in dimensions to its current gen model. The grille seems to be somewhat ‘in your face’. However, the design form of the grille remains to be typical Merc. So much that we wonder why did the German car maker even bothered to hide the insignia on this example of the car. In side profile, the car is distinctively Merc and now has an even stronger character line. The interiors, from what we can make out, remain typical Merc affair but with a dash of sportiness injected to them. We have reported a fair bit about the upcoming gen of BMW 7 series. Both of the age old German rivals appear to be getting even better in order to outsell the other.
