Mercedes is putting the finishing touches on the 2013 S-Class.
Set to be unveiled later this year, the model has an evolutionary design with a larger grille, a sculpted hood and LED-infused headlights. Further back, there's a dual exhaust system and taillights that appear to mimic the ones used on the CL-Class.
While our spies couldn't get close enough to snap interior pictures, the model appears slightly larger than its predecessor. This means we expect a more accommodating cabin with premium materials and high-end amenities.
Engine options remain unconfirmed, but will likely include the familiar V6s and V8s that populate the company's lineup. There could also be a plug-in hybrid variant with a 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine and a 60 hp (44 kW / 60 PS) electric motor.
