Another sighting of the new generation of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class was recorded while it was testing at the Nurburgring endurance track. This time, the flagship car of the three-pointed star marque does not appear to be holding anything back as its tester pushed the auto to its limits.
The full reveal of the new S-Class is expected to happen sometime in 2020. With the end of the year coming in fast, Mercedes is now making sure that it lives up to the hype. The new spy video here from Carspotter Jeroen, which was posted on YouTube, shows the car on full-throttle to iron out whatever performance kinks it may have. Impressively, the vehicle was able to conquer all the corners with ease while going at max speed.
The spy shot does not reveal much about the upcoming S-Class because of its unusually heavy zebra camouflage that’s hiding its exterior features. However, we couldn’t help but notice the blacked-out panels replacing the conventional door handles. As mentioned earlier, the areas might be concealing pop-out handles similar to the ones fitted on the Tesla Model S. The other changes we are anticipating from the auto are its CLS-inspired headlights and triangular taillights.
We are yet to discover the new performance figures of the new S-Class. The range-topping version of it might be limited to the Mercedes-AMG S63 model though because the V12 power units might be reserved for the Mercedes-Maybach variant of the series going forward. So, that’s a sad farewell to the AMG S65.
