It's been a while since we've heard anything about the next-generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and judging by this latest set of spy photos, there's still quite a bit of work to be done before the new Silver Arrow flagship makes its debut.

Like the earlier mules we've seen, the next-generation S-Class will likely use a larger, more upright grille design, previewed by the F700 concept from a few years ago. Expect the Merc's face to be chocked full of LED goodness, and under the hood, you can count on the standard range of gasoline, diesel and hybrid powertrains.

Inside, you can bet that the new S-Class will be as luxurious as ever, with Mercedes-Benz reportedly looking at cashmere and silk as possible cabin materials. Sounds plush. Look for the all-new S-Class to debut sometime in 2012.

      I'd rather have Hyundai Genesis than this S-Class. Just kidding.

      Can't wait! I think the latest "refresh" of the current S-class has ruined the exterior...it's time for a brand new look! Hope the diesel stays =)

      I like the fashion industry inspired quilted leather(?) on the sides and hood. Finally something different from the standard steel body, which we all know is soooo old fashioned.

      I just hope they don't put the hyundai side styling on it like they've been doing with everything else...The pre-refresh current S-class had a very clean and smooth design that looked great. Don't bungle this one up.
