Set to go on sale later this year, the redesigned model has a distinctive front fascia with a massive grille that is flanked by LED-infused headlights. Moving further back we can see flowing character lines, distinctive taillights, an angular trunk and a dual exhaust system.

The stylish cabin is awash with high quality materials and premium accents. Notable highlights are slated to include a panoramic sunroof, illuminated door sill plates, soft-closing doors and LED ambient lighting. We can also expect a Burmester audio system, two 12.3-inch displays and four different wood trims: Burl Walnut, Myrtle Sunburst, Black Popular and "Metalized Ash."

Customers will also be able to order options such as heated / ventilated seats, a rear seat entertainment system and an "Air Balance Package" that filters and ionizes the air and can even dispense perfume. If that's not impressive enough, the model can also be equipped with rear "Chauffer Seats" that are ten-way adjustable and have power-deployable footrests.

Under the hood, at least three different engines will be available. The S350 BlueTEC will have a 3.0-liter V6 diesel that produces 258 HP (190 kW) and 620 Nm (457 lb-ft) of torque. It will enable the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 6.8 seconds and hit a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

Moving up to the S500 will reward buyers with a 4.7-liter V8 petrol engine that cranks out 455 HP (335 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque. This will allow the car to run from 0-100 km/h in 4.8 seconds, before topping out at 250 km/h (155 mph).

Lastly, the S400 Hybrid will have a hybridized 3.5-liter V6 engine which produces 306 HP (225 kW) and 370 Nm (273 lb-ft) of torque. This will enable the luxury sedan to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 6.8 seconds and have a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
