More interior shots emerge of the W222. Why? It's a Maybach! Look at those recliners.

That too, I believe, in the SWB version.

Thanks scorcher.
I've mixed feelings regarding the interior but this undoutedly looks luxurious unlike the new E whos interior looks cheap and sporty, I was actually afraid they may follow up on that design language for the new S as well : S.
As for the reclining rear seat with foot rest I think this was absolutely necessary as I believe that feature was exclusive to the A8 so far.

Really?

How thick you've to be to release the scale model of a yet to be officially unveiled car and call it "leaked"?

New Mercedes S-class Coupé spy shots
Mercedes' replacement for the CL caught undergoing testing; expected to be revealed at the 2014 Geneva motor show

http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/ne...oupé-spy-shots


Quote:
The first spy shots of a disguised Mercedes S-class Coupé have emerged from Germany.

The new model will form part of a five-strong line-up for the new S-class and rival the Bentley Continental GT.

Mercedes is aiming for a sleeker, more muscular appearance for the S-class Coupé, eschewing the two-door saloon style of the CL it replaces.

Latest spy shots show the S-class with a narrow glasshouse and a dramatic swage line that runs from the front wing to the rear wheelarch.

The rear of the S-class Coupé features LED lights and a unique design that appears, in disguised form, unrelated to any other Mercedes models, including the new S-class saloon.

A gentle sloping of the rear windscreen implies rear seat accommodation will remain a priority for the two-door car. Prominent exhaust pipes also hint at the more sporting intent of the coupé.

The S-class saloon will receive its official unveiling next week. Further additions to the line-up will include a cabriolet based on the Ocean Drive concept and an extra-long-wheelbase version under the 'Pullman' name.

Mercedes-Benz's new coupé is expected to arrive in 2015, following a debut at next year's Geneva motor show.
Notice the LED tail lights.

Not that it looks terrible, but the giant grill, trying too hard to be curvy after the b-pillar, mid 90s bentley rear end, a 2 spoke steering wheel...somehow I feel the Sonderklasse has lost it's stateliness over the last decade.

Everytime the S and the 7 come out, the A8 seems to look better and better!

At least they took off those swollen fender arches...

I agree, big Audis do look less Chinese than MBs.

A good design has universal values. And this one does look quite good.

Didn't like the exterior looks at all. They should have taken F700 route. No character atall in the looks. Hate the eyebrow like DRL on this and I guess its also on the ML range. C class DRL is much better.

I think this looks really cool.
But an S-Class is more about its interior and I think they have done it quiet well, although I don't like the vast expanses of wood in the press pictures. Would prefer brushed aluminium or something like that. I am sure there is an option for that. The two mahoosive screens look really cool as well.

EDIT: 100th post! YAY!

Initial impressions:That grille is MASSIVE! It's a truly appealing automobile, and befits the role of a flagship of the three pointed star. This takes the character of it's lesser siblings to the hilt as it was supposed to be.

The Three pointed star is back with a bang and how! I simply cannot wait to know about the advanced gizmos this car will bring in with it. Any news on the AMG variant of this car??
Slightly OT:Can we get a Team BHP review of this car??
