After retiring the Maybach luxury car brand, Daimler plans to make a successor to its 600 Pullman model. However, the new version will be under the Mercedes-Benz banner in its S-Class line of cars.

The news was fueled by the recent spy shots that Autoblog featured last Friday. Based on the pictures of the camouflaged S-Class car, the new model will be longer than its predecessors and it will be featuring a massive set of rear doors to make room for a more spacious back passenger section.
Based on the source, the new car will make use of the brand’s dual-turbocharged V12 engines. A hybrid version is also rumored to be offered as well by the automaker.

1st time spied. The final version will have a different grill/front end than the standard W222, will have a nicer interior than the standard S (is that even possible?) and is a replacement for the Maybach brand.

It might be the absence of brightwork, but I find that looks nondescript compared to the excellent new S class. If you stretch something you need to bulk it out to give it proportions.

It is due to have a different front end/grill than the standard S...

Might even be some brightwork on that hidden C pillar aswell.

More shots. It turns out this actually isnt the Pullman, but an extra long wheelbase model:

Killerhertz is right in saying that this is the replacement for the Maybach brand, but i agree with you on both the Maybach and this new XL S-class that both are not proportioned correctly.

To me personally, it was always the wheels that looked too piddly on these, definitely needs some bigger and wider rims.

I think it looks just like the Maybach. In fact, the Maybach looks better to me.

That is a lot better looking than the previous Maybach.

You know, I've always thought to myself, there's only one thing the S Class could do with more of. More rear leg room! ;-)
There's obviously a market, but it's not the uk!
SWB has dominated sales of the W220 and W221.
