The S-Class has led the way in car tech for decades. As Top Gear has said, if you want to know what tech will be in your car in 10 years time, just look at the latest S-Class. Well, here's a new one. The trickle down is about to begin again.

This image is all we have to go on so far, but what we see is a slightly less polarizing front end than the current S-Class had when it was released. The grille is massive and appears to have a radar sensor in the top of it.

Of note are also the headlights that, of course, house LED accent lights.

We've already seen the interior, so we're well on the way to discovering everything that hides underneath that new skin, and that surely includes some outrageous technology.
