Mercedes-Benz has an aggressive strategy for its new line-up and their flagship S-Class seems to be in the forefront with the 2014 S-Class that was unveiled in Germany recently. There have been talks about five different variants for the S-Class with the resurrection of the Pullman being the most awaited. Following this news, the new 2014 S-Class Pullman was spotted with minimal camouflauge in Germany.
The Pullman variant is basically a stretched out version of the already lengthy EWB S-Class, and will be approximately 15-30cm longer than the standard version of the S-Class. The Pullman will have longer C-pillars and longer rear doors and will pave way for Mercedes-Benz to re-enter the ultra-luxury auto market which is currently Rolls-Royce territory.
The S600 Pullman is likely be powered by a twin turbocharged V12 engine, which is expected to produce 610PS of power and will be mated to the company’s dual-clutch automatic transmission. The model will also receive a hybrid version which will be available in the market a few months after the Pullman launch.
The S600 Pullman is set to be unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show and prices are expected to start at 2,00,000 euros (Rs 1.55 crore). If and when the model comes to India it will come at a much heavier price thanks to the import duties on CBUs (Completely Built Units)resulting in a minimum of Rs 3.2 crore ex-showroom.
