With only just a day before official deliveries of the new Sonderklasse will start in most Mercedes-Benz showrooms, the Germans decided to ease the waiting pain of early buyers by releasing a movie-like trailer for their new flagship sedan.
The W222 S-Class promises to be the best luxury sedan money can buy, at least until the Pullman long-wheelbase version arrives sometime next year.

Packed with ground-breaking technologies such as a high-tech suspension that scans the road ahead of the car and prepares itself for any potholes or other discrepancies found on the asphalt it drives on, the new S-Class will probably have a picture in the dictionary next to the definition for “wafting”.

Its newly-introduced safety features may be even more high tech than that, as some of them even allow the car to become completely autonomous at certain speeds, with the entire process of driving, braking and cornering safely being the responsibility of on-board computers and tiny motors instead of the accident-prone driver.

Last but not least, the upcoming S500 Plug-in Hybrid model will be the most fuel-efficient luxury car on the face of the Earth, with only 3 liters of fuel spent for every 100 km/h (78.4 mpg) in the combined cycle, all while delivering a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration of 5.5 seconds and all the creature comforts you could ever want from a vehicle.

To those who have already ordered their new S-Class and are waiting for delivery, we salute you!
