Several pictures depicting the new Mercedes
S600 – the latest addition to the S-Class range – have surfaced online.
A full reveal wasn’t due to take place until next week at the Detroit Motor Show.
The images appear to be brochure shots and reveal the styling of the
S600 won’t differ too much from the S-Class models currently offered.
The interior will also be festooned with leather and wood trim.
Along with the leaked images, a spec sheet for the S600 was also
published. Power will come from a twin-turbo V12 engine developing
523bhp, making it the most powerful non-AMG variant in the S-Class
range. Only the S63 AMG (577bhp) and S65 AMG (621bhp) produce more grunt.
Power is likely to be transmitted via a 7G-Tronic Plus transmission,
with the leaked specs indicating the S600 should get from 0-62mph in 4.6
seconds, while top speed will be limited to 155mph.
Further information is scare but like the V8-powered S500,
the S600 is likely to only be available as a long-wheelbase model in
the UK. Mercedes’ Magic Body Control and safety systems such as
Collision Prevention Assist should also be fitted. Mercedes will give us
a full debriefing on the S600 following its official reveal in Detroit
next week. For more details click here.
