Mercedes-Benz Leaks First S-Class Picture

Apparently somebody “accidentally” uploaded this photo to Mercedes-Benz’s Austrian website. In this day and age of the internet, “leaks” are always suspect, but the next S-Class was slated to be introduced in two weeks time anyways. Here it is in all its glory. Explosive refrigerant not shown, of course.

From what I've heard (MB shop foreman) they're buying back the explosive refrigerant machines and calling back cars that were factory filled with it to be replaced with R134a.
That is one gaping maw.
Every now and then I look at a second hand S-class which is advertised for sale. I am attracted by the mad depreciation. Sure, the S-class glides like nothing else, unmarched in style and comfort. Sure, I look like a VIP in it. Then I am reminded it drives down the road like a boat. I am also reminded the car is just too darn big to park. Next I look up some S-class owner forum on the net and they tell me that the Sonderklasse is expensive to maintain, even before the repairs. And there will be repairs. Buying a new one with warranty is out of the question. Where I live a new S-class is 300,000 dollars US. After all this I return to reality and my plain Japanese sedan.
Sorry to see that MB stylists thought that Hyundai's " looks like it's moving when standing still" look was gonna be all the rage in the auto world, so why not copy it?
