With the death of its Maybach brand, Daimler will be filling its ultra-luxury sedan portfolio with a version of the redesigned Mercedes-Benz S-Class called the S600 Pullman. While it's not totally clear if the car shown here is the new Pullman, we can easily see from these spy shots that this is not your run-of-the-mill stretch job.

Comparing this car to our firsthand shots of the 2014 S-Class, the extended wheelbase is instantly obvious, but looking closer, we also see that the rear doors, quarter panel and C-pillars are also unique to this vehicle. Oddly, those bits are also far different from the most recent stretched S-Class spy shots we've seen (although they could have just been an early engineering mule for this car). Whatever model is shown in these spy shots might not even be the king of the S-Class range, though, as there is also word of a three-row, six-passenger Pullman model in the works.

      This is a strange site at times. I sent Autoblog links to two different websites with photos of this vehicle (same model, different colour) about a week ago. Did it really take a week to throw some words together and post it on the blog?

        they had to formulate this ridiculous theory of a third row going in a pullman

      If it was launched during September this year it would be like the 50th Anniversary for the legendary W100 600 Grosser :)

      This looks glorious. I can't wait to see it unveiled.

      3 rows. maybe like on a limo that has two jumpseats facing the opposite way.

      Three rows in that silhouette is stretching it kind far and would hinder the reason why you got a pullman.....for the space in the back seat.......

      maybe it is just a special edition LWB S-Class for China. LWB editions of regular cars are the rage in China and with that becoming the largest market for most of the manufacturers it makes sense, but then again as a country with one of the shortest on average populations why do they need so much legroom in the rear?

      The S Class will once more reign supreme in its class and send the latest incarnations of BMW 7 series and Audi A8 to their graves . But when will MB give us another 600 Grosser? That was the most unbelievable grand automobile ever created. No Rolls or Bentley has ever matched its prestige, status, symbolism and exclusivity... In all its versions and generations the S is the greatest car on earth. But Mercedes faithful like me would like to see a repaeat of the spirit that presided to the birth of the 600 Grosser. Maybach missed it. But the engineers at designers at Daimler should rise to the challenge....

        Cant help but LOL at that comment. Merc starts at less than $30,000 while Rolls Royce starts at over $300,000. Next thing a Hyundai fan will come up and say a Genesis coupe is superior to a Boeing or an Airbus.

          When MB was producing the 600 they had at the time very basic entry level cars such as the 190 and that did not take away the prestige of the 600, oh and by the way they were also producing trucks and buses with the 3 pointed star as well

          The Rolls is just a BMW with higher quality interior. The S-Class gives you some technology Rolls doesn't have. Bentley is even worse, just a VW Phaeton with its outdated engines.

          Poor Jai...You IQ must be in the 2 digits...sometimes one should just keep their mouth shut instead of spilling stupidities. But you're forgiveable. Your knowledge of automobiles is so low I wonder if you were even born when the 600 Grosser hit the avenues of the world. I hope you watched TV on Sunday and saw the coronotion of the new King of Belgium. Saw that black pullman limo? It was an W100 600 Grosser my lad. A car for royalty!

      Of course they will have the 6 passenger pullman. They have the S600 Pullman Guard so it makes sennse to make another one.
