Attention heads of state and other potentates: your next car is here. Patent photos for the next-generation Mercedes-Benz S600 Pullman have leaked online showing the ultimate interpretation of Merc's S-Class range.

If you just looked at the Pullman dead-on from the front or rear, you might not notice too many differences compared to the stock S600 because the styling is almost identical. However, once you see that profile, you know there's something very special here. The sedan still packs four doors but with additional windows along the side to gaze outward upon your subjects. They're sure to see you, too, because, according to Carscoops, this princely S-Class is about 21-feet long. That makes it even bigger than the massive Maybach 62 and the previous S600 Pullman Guard. While these shots don't show the inside, it supposedly offers room for eight with two in the cockpit partitioned away from six others in the rear with facing rows of seats.

Mercedes is rumored to not actually build the Pullman itself. Instead, the automaker might hand off production duties to noted tuner Brabus to handle the needs of this über-luxury sedan's wealthy clients. It needs to keep them satisfied, too, because the asking price for the armored version is rumored to be $1 million.

      Its a limousine. I'm not sure why this car gets articles here. It means about as much as reporting on a brand new commercial semi.

      I just don't undertand - who rides in these regular limos anymore? They seem so cramped compared to the Sprinter-based types. I'd much rather have one of those, should I ever become a potentate.

        Such cars exist because their lower centre of gravity means you can give them top level armouring without fear of rolling over every time you take a 5 degree bend, plus you can make the armouring look inconspicuous.

        You can armour a Sprinter to stop handgun ammo, sure. But you could make this stop armour-piercing rifle rounds with only the keenest eyes being able to pick that vehicle (and the VIPs within) from the non-armoured version. To make a Sprinter stop that kind of round means ditching most of the windows -- bullet-resistant glass is FAR heavier than the armour plate of equivalent resistance, and a Sprinter's higher windows push the centre of gravity northward -- and you end up with a vehicle that is normally spotted parked outside banks. Ostentatious limos may be a sign of wealth. But armoured limos are a sign of people who have good reason to believe others may try to harm them, and not being shot at in the first place is the best armour possible. Buying this vehicle with top level armour says "rich people inside". Buying a Sprinter with the equivalent armour says "shoot at me -- I'm important!"

      Hmm so take a $180,000 S-Class, stretch it a bit and add 2 seats...and tadaa the price increases by $820,000 ? These prices are absurd.

      Rolls Royce has nothing to worry about.

        RR has no car to compete with this.

          Nor do they need to make something as ugly as this. I'm sure RR customers would prefer a 1 million dollar V16 coupe over a 1 million dollar sedan whos base model counterpart has a starting price of $80k (for the S400 model not sold in the US).

      I don't see 2 rows of 3 in the back. The current one has 2 rows of 2 with a massive center console of goodies.

      For this price, one could buy a brand new Rolls Royce, have it stretched, and still have enough money left to buy a couple S-Class.
