Mercedes-Benz has activated the configurator for the all-new 2014 S-Class, and not surprisingly, there are a lot of goodies for this new luxo-barge. The options packages are quite extensive, although the S550 isn't big on standalone options.

The color palette for the S550, which starts at $92,900, also leaves something to be desired. It's your usual array of blacks, grays, silvers, whites, white-grays, black-grays, silver-whites and white-blacks that typify German executive sedans. As for the more exciting options of the Designo catalog, that menu hasn't quite been updated for the new S-Class, although we doubt it'll be long before the personalization service offers a more vibrant version of the stoic limo.

We managed to crank an S550 up to $139,995, which feels like an odd bargain for some reason. But for the car you see here, we couldn't live without that stylish Ruby Black paint, the Sport Package Plus One, Porcelain/Black Nappa leather seats, most of the interior packages, the Burmeister audio system, Magic Body Control, Surround View and the Driver Assistance package. All told, the Autoblog S-Class is just a shade over $130,000. Click on over and play away.

      Wow, the colour selection is all greys, silvers, blacks of various tones. Otherwise, the definitive bossmobile as the S-class has always been.

      My build came to $141,348. I remember when that would get you an S600. Where did the Jade Green color go???

      too bad I can't configure the favorite variant of all Autoblog readers: a diesel station-wagon with manual transmission.

      No thanks. This car is a lottery win and a couple lightning strikes away from my reality.

      wait till it comes off the three year lease and then purchase it for half the price and get a three year extended warranty. Most people will lease these cars anyway

        Nothing wrong with a lease these days if you're a business owner or 1099 employee. A lot of tax advantages there. Leases aren't necessarily a pejorative move. If you judge a man for leasing a car, he's likely laughing at you as he drives to his CPA in April.

          Our company writes off 100% of the lease payment as "Cost of Goods Sold", plus you're guaranteed a price when you can turn the car in at the end of the lease no matter what the used car market is doing. Plus you want to get rid on any car before the warranty and free maintenance expires. It's win, win, win. The only reason to BUY a car is if you want to drive it for 10 years or until it disintegrates from under you.

        About 50% will be lease but it won't be half price in 3 years, more like 65-70% of original vlue(per current model)
