At the upcoming 2012 Paris Motor Show later this month, Mercedes-Benz will not be showing the next-generation S-Class. However, what the Stuttgart automaker will show is a sculpture entitled ‘Aesthetics S,’ which provides a glimpse into what the next S-Class will look like.
“The characteristic lines of the S-Class have always represented the expression of automotive culture, as we understand it. The new S-Class will continue this tradition and, with its striking lines, will put a face to our design philosophy over the coming years,” said Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Mercedes-Benz Cars.
The debut of the Aesthetics S will be accompanied by an ‘exciting projection display.’ “The scene will be set for the sculpture with the aid of light in a series of three acts, using a modern means of design and implementation,” Mercedes-Benz said in a statement. “The shape will be revealed through projected light reflections, creating a three-dimensional world in which the creative imagination of the designers can be visualised to impressive effect.”
So when will we see the new S-Class. Not until 2013 Geneva Motor Show. Stay tuned.
