If this is what the next S comes out as, I will loose all my faith in car designers..especially the awesome designers from mercedes..I havent found *a single model of merc that doesnt excite me, ok exceptions are always there and G is definitely one of them and may be to some extent the M..

Ok, Now I was also looking for this, this they say might be the actual S coming out next year or year after that..

Take a look, its different from the earlier one i showed...








And looks NOT so nice, may be a little better than the fake one but still..

but compare it to the current S, its trash

Cheers

The first pictures you posted CFS i guess the rear lights in the fake were taken from the SLR. And then picture u posted after wards, of what could really be the new S I'm even more disappointed . Where is Mercedes design hearded. That design looks a bit boxy doesnt it. Damn now I miss the older Mercs even more...

After looking at these pictures of the supposedly new S Class, there is one word that expresses my feelings - DISAPPOINTMENT. For all you know, members of the Bangle team have moved next door to MB headquarters and influenced the S Class design.

The S Class is one automobile that has always been stunning and universally accepted through all its generations. Take the beautiful W126 or the majestic W140...even the current S Class series has truckloads of charm. All the S's to date have been muscular, relatively conservative to look at and well-proportioned.

I really hope Mercedes know what they are doing. These pictures though are different from some spy pics that I had seen myself on the net. Those pics were from a research study and the new S Class featured there had a lot in similar with the current breed.
