Today, see the very first spy photos of the new Mercedes S-Class. Partly disguised with parts from the current model, it’s still clear that this one really is the new S-Class. Apart from the easy parts to spot, like the front and rear end, also notice that the door lines and especially the rear doors are very different to the current model.
Front lights are expected to get smaller and the grille more upright than the current car but not as extreme as on the F700 Concept. According to rumors it will not be a much lighter due to the necessary space and tech requirements but it will be much more fuel efficient due to new downsized engines and three versions of hybrid options, mild, full and plug-in.
Even if this prototype looks more ready than expected, the new S-Class is not due for the market until 2012.
