Mercedes-Benz is nearing completion of its next-generation S-Class flagship sedan, with the latest prototypes undergoing hot weather testing now wearing the least camouflage gear yet.
Due for a reveal early next year as a 2014 model, the new S-Class is expected to be slightly longer than the current model and come packed with a range of fuel efficient engines as well as a new plug-in hybrid option, though this latter option is unlikely to be available at launch.
In terms of styling, expect influences from the fluid F800 Style concept car to feature on the new S-Class. Some advanced technology like the recently launched PRE-SCAN active suspension set-up, a new autonomous-driving traffic assistant, and the futuristic SERVO-HMI (Human Machine Interface) virtual operating assistant may make it too.
