Mercedes S-Class is nearing the end of its product cycle. Despite its age, the technology-laden Benz flagship remains formidable, having bested the BMW 750Li and Audi A8 in a recent comparison of ours. Nevertheless, the engineers are working away at the next iteration S-Class, which our spy photographers caught testing in Europe.
The mule shown here is wearing parts from the current model and strategically placed camouflage, making details hard to spot. The most apparent change is the gap of the rear doors, which has a much different shape from the current car. We hear other changes will include smaller front lights and an upright grill, though the exterior surely won't be as radical as the F700 concept shown at the Frankfurt auto show in 2007.
