We already seen some absolutely stunning photos of the next gen Mercedes S-Class interior, but now we're getting our first peek at the sheet metal, courtesy of either a sloppy intern or a calculated and fake "leak" for PR reasons. 

The big Benz is slated to move up into the void that Rick Ross' dear departed Maybach has left, so it has to look like it can go toe to toe with Bentleys and Rolls-Royces. We think this new S-Class successfully recaptures the regal feel and sense of occasion of S-Classes of years bygone.

What do you think, if you were a pro athlete/rapper/ponzi scheme manager, would you rock a long wheel base Benz with reclining rear seats over a Bentley?
