We have been reporting in detail about the upcoming generation of Mercedes S Class. As we have been saying, the 2014 Mercedes S Class will raise the bar in its segment and would be luxurious enough to become the successor of the Mayback. With the launch of the new S Class, all the five models of Maybach– 57, 57 S, 62, 62 S and Landaulet will become things of history.
The Maybach will be replaced by a Pullman variant of the new S Class. The Pullman was discontinued in 1981. The Pullman variant used to be a hot favourite of the political leaders, dignitaries and high ranking officials. Very much like the last Pullman, the Pullman variant of the new S Class will become the flagship variant of the S Class line up of luxury sedans.
Seen here is a rendering of the S600 Pullman that has been spotted testing on a couple of occasions. The Mercedes S600 Pullman will be underpinned by an elongated platform of the new S Class and it is being said that the Pullman will be 12 inches longer than the standard variants. The Pullman will have a wider B pillar and longer rear doors. Most of the increased length will result into more comfort for rear passengers.
Powering the S600 Pullman will be a twin-turbocharged V12 engine that will have a max power output of 600bhp. The motor will be mated to a seven-speed DCT transmission.
