After it axed the Maybach luxury brand, Daimler has serious plans with the new 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class. As you may know already, the German manufacturer is working on a ultraluxury version of the new S-Class, which will cost between $200,000 and $250,000 in order to compete with Rolls-Royce and Bentley models.
Dubbed “Super S-Class”, the new car is scheduled to arrive in 2015 and will have big job: replace the Maybach 57 and 62 sedans.
If the Maybach 62 S was priced at more than $470,000, the new Super S-Class will be much cheaper in order to attract more customers.
Although some of Mercedes’ AMG models cost almost $200,000, the Super S-Class is independent of AMG and will have a bigger piece of that segment, according to Daimler CEO Dieter Zestsche.
In order to differentiate it from the standard S-Class, the super luxury version of the flagship sedan is expected to offer technology and interior appointments that top those of the 2014 S-Class.
People, especially car enthusiasts, all over the world can detect a Mercedes-Benz up front. The classic face of Mercedes-Benz has been one of the most recognizable objects in the world today and is the golden thread throughout the brand’s days of yore.
Design Chief Gorden Wagener said that the elegant design of the S-Class has always been a declaration of opulent lifestyle and automotive magnificence of its era. Its brand-new S-Class keeps up with this tradition. With its vintage architecture and flowing silhouette, it is a fresh expression of sophistication.
The design fuses both the stylish, progressive design and the quintessential charm of our 1930s cars. Fashionable dash and sensual forms in synthesis with perennial precision and unchallenging dominance make the S-Class a timeless design icon.
To highlight the premium primacy of the new S-Class, and its dream to lead, the radiator grille has been upsized, made upright and precise with its three-dimensional design. With its long bonnet, the flowing, domed roof line and the gradual slanting rear end, the all-new S-Class boasts of its classic saloon magnitude. The area has been designed such that the Mercedes-Benz S-Class appears prominent, and the touch of a potent roof line keeps up with the car’s sporty coupe-style intentions.
