Next-generation ML-Class prototype spied on the street with a video outtake getting very close up.

Here's a video of a 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML-Class prototype spied on the street in Germany and filmed with a phone-camera.

We've already published a few sets of spy shots of the next-generation ML-Class but this video, however shaky, takes us right up to the car where we get a better look at the details.

Those include the rear wraparound taillights (borrowed from the E-Class) at the back, and the new front fascia with new grille, headlights and LED daytime driving lights on the bumper.

Under the hood of the next-generation ML-Class we expect the 306 PS (225 kW / 302 hp) 3.5-liter V6 and a 3.0-liter diesel producing 265 PS (195 kW / 262 hp). A range-topping 435 PS (320 kW / 429 hp) 4.6-liter V8 will also be available.

Look for the 2012 ML-Class to debut at the Frankfurt motor show in September.
