Mercedes-Benz S 350 BlueTec ( W222) 2012

Though only due to be unveiled in about 2 hours time at an event in Hamburg, here are the first photos of the new W222 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which made their way onto the internet just a couple of hours ago.

We will be back with proper coverage of the S-Class after the official unveiling of course, with a full high res gallery as well as the complete technical low down on Mercedes-Benz’s new flagship vehicle. For now, you’ll have to make do with these first batch of photos, as well as the technical details unveiled via the leaked German language brochure we published earlier this week.
