  1. And now, the ongoing competition is to see who has the largest... ... screen. Automakers seem to have moved on from the horsepower wars and are now focusing their attention on a new kind of contest. Judging from car launches in recent years, it looks like there’s a race for the title of the largest infotainment screen fitted to an automobile. Mercedes-Benz is committed to taking part in this race; just look at the humongous center screen that the all-new 2020 S-Class will have. These are the very first spy shots of the luxury sedan’s portrait-style center screen which is the size of China. We don’t know exactly how big it is, but since the digital instrument panel is wider than on the current S-Class, the center display is at least as wide and significantly longer. From this distance, it seems even bigger than the iPad Pro 12.9, the world’s largest tablet computer. Look closely and you’ll notice some physical buttons at the bottom of the screen. They control the driving modes, hazard lights, volume, on/off, and some other functions we can’t decipher. Most functions will be accessible via the center touchscreen. Besides the digital instrument panel and the infotainment display, the rest of the cabin is still covered. On the outside, it’s pretty clear that the S-Class prototype features the production headlights and taillights. However, their shapes remain unknown given the heavy camouflage. The 2020 S-Class will arrive next year with Level 3 semi-autonomous driving tech, which is a step above Level 2 systems such as Tesla’s Autopilot and Cadillac’s Super Cruise. The flagship sedan will reportedly feature hybrid-only versions using the latest 3.0-liter and 2.9-liter straight-six gasoline and diesel engines. The PHEV versions are expected to offer all-electric driving ranges of up to 62 miles (100 km). The S-Class is also said to debut a new 4Matic all-wheel-drive system with a fully variable torque split between the axles, as well as an active suspension that will work together with a 48-volt system and a stereo camera scanning the road ahead. Besides the S-Class, Mercedes is also developing an all-electric EQ S luxury sedan that will use a new MEA platform different from the S-Class’ updated MRA architecture.

    [Spyshots] 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class (W223)

    https://www.motor1.com/news/436339/mercedes-s-class-ar-hud/ The teaser campaign for the next Mercedes-Benz S-Class continues. Actually, this isn’t much of a teaser since we’ve already seen a preview of this technology. We’re talking about the very cool augmented reality head-up display (AR-HUD) the new luxury flagship will feature, but whereas previous glimpses were part of larger teaser vids, this new clip posted to Facebook is all about the AR system. And it’s creepy cool. What is creepy cool? In short, it’s seeing a computer-generated image of an arrow projected onto the windshield that swoops, banks, and generally flies across the glass while you navigate a roundabout. It’s red lines outlining the edge of a corner as you go around. It’s weird glowing lights appearing under cars you’re following. And yes, it’s floating checkered flags hovering at places you mark as destinations. These are all functions of the Merc’s AR-HUD that we see in this new video. We should further clarify that the creepy aspect of this is just temporary. Seeing such animated actions on the windscreen certainly makes for a futuristic experience, much like the way we felt using augmented reality on our phones for that inaugural round of Pokémon Go. But just like the shock of seeing fictional creatures hopping around city streets faded, so will this. All that will remain is the cool factor, and we can’t deny the cool factor of having specific intersections and guided directions highlighted in a manner such as this. It’s one part of a technological tour-de-force that will be the next-generation S-Class. The interior will offer up to five digital screens, with the literal centerpiece being the central 12.8-inch infotainment screen. The driver gets a fully digital instrument cluster, and passengers can have individual screens that can share what’s seen on the main screen in front. https://motorsport.tv/embed/CGhk68E9?autoplay We don’t have much longer to wait for the new Mercedes to arrive. The next-generation S-Class is slated to debut in September. In the meantime, stay tuned for more S-Class teasers.

    [Spyshots] 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class (W223)

    https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/new-cars/mercedes-benz-reveals-first-official-image-new-s-class There have been recent reports that the disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic could force Mercedes to delay the launch of the S-Class until next year, but the firm’s chairman, Ola Kallenius, has insisted that it is on track. The first official image of the new S-class, which goes under the internal codename W223, reveals its conventional styling. Key elements include a prominent chromed grille with three horizontal blades and angular headlamps with three projector beams. Describing it as a "technological tour de force", Mercedes-Benz chairman, Ola Källenius, says the company has put its "brightest minds and most creative people" to work on its new flagship model.“It’s a completely new level in terms of artificial intelligence and needs-based electrification,” he said. The Audi A8 and BMW 7 Series rival is set to receive a variety of drivetrain options, including 48-volt mild-hybrid petrol and diesel units and new plug-in hybrid powertrains Production of the new S-class is planned to commence in September 2020 at Mercedes-Benz’s Factory 56 in Sindelfingen, Germany. It will be joined by a slightly smaller pure electric EQS model at the same facility in 2021. Commenting directly on the Telsa Model S and Jaguar XJ-challenging EQ S for the first time, Källenius said it would use CO2 neutral battery cells sourced from an unnamed supplier. The partial reveal of the S-Class comes as speculation mounts that the chairman of Mercedes-Benz’s AMG performance car division, Tobias Moers, is set to depart the company to take up the position of CEO at British car maker, Aston Martin.

    The Maybach is back...

    The Maybach brand has been resurrected. Mercedes-Benz is now using it as a nameplate for the stretched S600L. Wonder how many of those can they sell in Singapore. It should do better than the old Maybach. http://www.autoblog.com/2014/11/19/mercedes-maybach-s600-official/

    LKY medical condition

    http://www.straitstimes.com/breaking-news/singapore/story/lee-kuan-yew-attends-chinese-new-year-party-istana-20140209 "Former prime minister Lee Kuan Yew attended an annual Chinese New Year party for grassroots leaders at the Istana on Sunday evening..." It's always nice to see him make a public appearance these days. Looks like he finally switched from his trusted Lexus to a Mercedes-Benz W221, too.
  6. A brand new Mercedes-Benz S350 BlueTec belonging to an elderly German couple suffered a total write-off after a fierce fire started in its engine bay at a small town in Germany. The cause of fire was not mentioned in the report but it was said that the flagship sedan suffered extensive damage under its hood. At the heart of Mercedes' W222 S350 BlueTEC is a 3.0-litre V6 turbodiesel powerplant mated to a 7-speeder auto 'box to produce an output of 258hp and 620Nm of torque that will launch the 2-tonner sedan up to a max speed of 250kmh.

  7. Wonder whether we can see the new S Class in Singapore by 2013 ??
  8. [extract] Locally, the Mercedes Benz marque has always been known or seen as a rather upmarket name. Many also perceive that this brand name attracts older buyers rather than younger ones and thus the nickname

    Refreshed 2011 MB CL Class

    This is the refreshed 2011 CL-Class, which despite the rumors, doesn't adopt the S-Class Coupe moniker as part of Mercedes-Benz's new nomenclature that started with the new E-Class Coupe that replaced the CLK. For its mid-life facelift, the CL coupe has received a mild facelift and a new bi-turbo V8 engine. Visual updates include a redesigned front bumper housing LED strips with chrome surrounds for the daytime running lights, a reshaped hood, new headlamps and a more V-shaped grille. The LED turn indicators and position marker lamps along with the reprofiled rear bumper and newly-designed tail lamps round off the exterior changes. Under the bonnet, there's a new 4.7-liter bi-turbocharged V8 engine with BlueDIRECT technology, which is mated to a revised version of Mercedes-Benz's seven-speed automatic gearbox. Stop-start system and brake energy recuperation technology are present too. The eight-cylinder unit produces 429HP and 516 lb-ft of torque. The CL500 requires 4.9 seconds to accelerate from a standstill to 100km/h, a 0.5 second improvement over the previous model. The range also includes the CL600, with its 510HP 12-cylinder biturbo engine producing 612 lb-ft. of torque that accelerates the luxury coup
