Few cars in the world have the status of the S-Class, which explains the intense anticipation many GCFers are experiencing. Our member Meilensammler though, came to their rescue by posting the complete S-Class brochure (found in the photo gallery after the jump), that is scheduled to debut in 4 days time, on May 15.
The first thing that caught our attention are the striking looks. Even though design is subjective, this one is undeniably beautiful. Moving on to the interior, there are two LCD screens in the dashboard, that measure 31cm in diagonal, via which most of the cars functions, like the optional Burmeister high-end sound system will be controlled. The new S-Class will be equipped with MB’s latest suspension technology, under the name Magic Body Control, with anticipatory Road Surface Scan, as well as the Driver’s Assist Pack Plus, which includes the Distronic Plus with Steering Assist and Pre-Safe Plus systems. LED lighting will also be optional.
Measuring 5116mm in length, (5246mm for the Long version), 2130mm in width and 1496mm in height, the new S-Class will initially be offered with one diesel engine (S350 BlueTEC), a 3.0l V6 with 258hp, 620Nm and 5.9l/100 of combined fuel consumption, one petrol engine (S500), a 4.7l V8 with 455hp, 700Nm and 9.1l/100km of combined fuel consumption and a hybrid system that’s based on a 3.5l V6, having a combined output of 306hp and 370Nm, while only requiring 7.4l per 100km. All engine variants come with a 7G-Tronic automatic transmission.
