Images of what could be Mercedes-Benz’s new S-Class Pullman have surfaced online today, offering a first look at the new stretch limousine.
Borrowing the bulk of its styling from its conventional sibling, the Pullman shown here also maintains the bold character lines that dominate the profile of the existing new S-Class limo.
Setting the Pullman apart from the regular S-Class, of course, is that additional centre window and pillar, an extra-long rear door and a more upright C-pillar. (Err, make that E-pillar… - Ed.)
Interior shots of the new Pullman have yet to surface, but we can likely expect a facing four-seat rear compartment with a tech-heavy and luxurious fit-out.
And, with reports pointing to an overall length of 6.4 metres for the new Pullman, the rear area is likely to boast a good deal of leg room.
By comparison, the regular model measures 5116mm long, and no more than 5246mm in long-wheelbase form. The longest Rolls-Royce Phantom is also a good deal shorter at ‘a mere’ 6091mm.
The S-Class Pullman is expected to enter full-scale production in late 2015, and reports out of Europe suggest the new model will be built by tuning house Brabus.
The Pullman will likely make use of Benz's range of turbocharged V8 and V12 engines, with a V6 hybrid also a possibility.
With these images now out in the open, we could see the Pullman make its official online debut in the coming weeks, if not sooner.
