New Mercedes 600 Pullman Spied

Spy Shots

First spy shots of the Maybach’s successor have emerged.

With the Maybach 57 and 62 sedans consigned to the history books,Mercedes announced the new W222 Mercedes S-Class - tipped to take a bow inMay - would come with a Pullman limousine bodystyle to succeed those ill-fated models. And these exclusive spyshots are the first time the new extra-long model has been seen in prototypeguise. Previous S-ClassPullmans were built to order, coming with the full-length three-box passenger compartments; the new model will be built in far higher volumes.

As the spy shots show, the Pullman will feature longer and wider B-pillars and longer rear doors, giving rear passengers extra legroom and owners more space in the trunk. The extended dimensions are apparent in the single spy shot of the Pullman next to the standard S-Class. It’s said the prototype is as much as eight inches longer than the long-wheelbase S-Class. Aimed at the well-heeled and limo hire companies alike, the model will be a sure-fire hit in China where rich businessman prefer to lounge in the comfort of a luxury car’s rear quarters instead of breaking a sweat behind the wheel.
