At the Paris Motor Show later this month, Mercedes-Benz will be unveiling a sculpture dubbed “Aesthetics S”, and a projection display. These give us a preview of what to expect from the design of the brand new S-Class. The sculpture plays up the car’s profile lines. Meanwhile, the projection display is intended to be a 3D illustration of the designers’ creativity and imagination.
With regards to design, the spy images indicate that the S-Class will have slightly bigger measurements and will make use of the same front end style as the updated C-Class. It will be available with various engine options such as a diesel, hybrid, V8, and V12. It will also be offered with an all new nine-speed transmission. Since the discontinuance of the Maybach, the S-Class is now the flagship car.
This means that it will have the most advanced technologies that Mercedes could provide. Gorden Wagener, head of design at Mercedes-Benz Cars, said that the timeless design of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class has always been what made the model survive this long. He explained that the sculpture is a continuation and prepares the way for the making of a new S-Class.
