The next generation Mercedes-Benz S-class will be revealed in Hamburg on 15 May, Daimler chief Dieter Zetsche has revealed. The next generation Merc S-class following the failure of Maybach. Zetsche said that Mercedes would "broaden the portfolio of the S-class" to make more luxurious versions aimed at the Rolls-Royce Ghost.

He also confirmed the next generation C-class would be revealed next year. The new model, along with the recently revised E-class, are crucial for Mercedes in China if it is to close the gap on Audi and BMW, according to Zetsche.

The new C-class and S-class are new Mercedes not included in Mercedes' plan to launch 13 new models without a predecessor by 2020, but three of the five models - CLA, CLA Shooting Brake and GLA SUV - to be spun off the A-class platform were.

Looking at it from an India, angle Im very eager to see if the new S Class will bring back the glory that it has somehow lost in recent times to the other Germans in India. Only time will tell. What do you guys feel?

The front of the car looks nice, but the rear of the current car looks more premium and nicer I think. Undoubtedly the most comfortable car that money can buy. I get chauffeured occasionally in our office S500, I quite enjoy it every single time.

Considering the fact that this is the car that embarks how the automotive industry will shape up for the next half a decade, the pictures alone and the few peeks into the specs leaves us....the enthusiasts mildly disappointing....but nevertheless its a drool tool...waiting for the actual launch...after the breathtaking evolution in the form of new Range Rover, if the same sort of leap is expected outta this car, it will be jaw dropping by every scale...Audi,BMW,Jag.....cover your bottoms...
