Thanks to some quick-triggered spy photographers in the right place at the right time, we've already seen our first undisguised images of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Now, BlogAutomobile from France has managed to get a hold of what appears to be the first official image showing the exterior design of the big luxury sedan. Of course, Mercedes-Benz has already released a select batch of images showing the car's interior.

The car in this image appears to be identical to the car photographed back in March right down to the color, multi-spoke wheels and even the license plate. With the extra effect added into this image, it practically confirms that it is a leaked press photo. Have a good look then let us know what you think in the Comments.

      Looks like MB found HDR mode on their camera. If they actually paint a car in liquid silver like that, I'll be more interested.

      I do not like this pic, and am surprised that M-B is using it as an \"official\" photo. There are too many effects that distract from the design of the car itself. The photo just appears too busy, visually. The car in the spy shots looks much better, IMHO.

      Maybe it is just me but I do not like the current MB design language. Way too many distinct lines, strakes, and shiny bits, just too busy overall. MB used to be about understated class and performance. Now they are nouveau-riche-mobiles, maybe to appeal to the Chinese.

        seriously. from pictures i could understand but this simply shows you haven't seen the cars on the road. they look futuristic and timeless at the same time, better than most other cars on the road. and i never was a huge benz fan

      Watch out Acura. RLX now has competition.

      I see Mercedes is starting to go for that hip Hyundai look.

      M-B proving that once again, they have completely lost it in terms of styling. Even in that "beauty shot" with all its HDR gimmickry and photoshop trickery, it still looks terrible... then looking at the actual photos of it sans all those silly effects and you see just how utterly bland this design is. Awful. Its almost as if M-B and the other Germany and Japanese carmakers WANT someone like Cadillac to come in and upstage them in the luxury car game. In just a few years Cadillac's true flagship will be here, and if things continue the way they are, it will be a true world-class effort. If Ford woke up and invested in Lincoln, it too could possibly enter the luxury car game and win some marketshare... lord knows that M-B, Lexus and a few other players in the game don't seem to want to keep onto their sales with these horribly designed cars.

        Let\'s talk reality. No matter what you think of it, this will sell like hotcakes throughout the world. Cadillac, as much as I like the ATS and love the upcoming CTS, still has a less-than-sterling reputation to contend with, and a serious uphill battle to win sales outside of North America. And Lincoln, despite its progress witht he MXZ and the promise of the MKC, has a long way to go in order to be considered seriously as a luxury make.

      As far as car design goes, we are definitely in the age of busy, complicated vehicle fronts with huge grills. Are there any luxury cars left with a refined subtle look? Luxury is becoming synonymous with gaudiness. I remember when Acura\'s front end was controversial, now they seem down-right tame.

        They don't sell. Acura I believe lost some of their market share after their new design language, but I could be wrong.

          I see TL's everyday and they look horrible. Nothing Acura sells really seems luxurious to me.

      This is bad. The 2014 S-Class looks too much like an E-Class, similar to the way the A8 looks like an A6. As a fan of Mercedes, I really wish they made the S-Class look more imposing like a Rolls Royce. Big doors, high shoulder, long horizontal lines. Or, if that's asking too much, then go ahead and make the S300 and S350 look tame for the sake of selling many units. But make the S500 (or S550) look like a Rolls Royce, especially after the death of Maybach.
