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.

In less than a week, the world will witness the debut of the all new 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class. But right now, photos of its 1:18 scale die-cast model has surfaced on the Internet, courtesy of a photo gallery in an online French forum dedicated to miniature models. The photos revealed that the new model, codenamed W222, is clearly an evolution of the current model. Perhaps Mercedes-Benz is trying to play it safe with the styling of its top tier sedan so as not to 'shock' its current customer base. Some interesting styling features include a large front grille inspired by the F700 Concept car and LED head lights and taillights. Along with the sedan, the S-Class will spawn a coupe and convertible as well as an extended wheelbase S 600 Pullman trim that will fill the Maybach void. The latest S-Class represents Mercedes-Benz' ninth generation flagship sedan, and the sixth to be officially called the S-Class. Like the current S500, the new S-Class will be powered by a twin-turbo V8 and the S600 will pack a twin-turbo V12. The S 63 and S 65 AMG, diesel, hybrid and smaller powertrains will be introduced at a later date.
