Daimler’s flagship is exactly what we expected, a new leaked image shows.

The new S-Class has gotten the leaky treatment, thanks to some keen bloggers in France and an inept website manager for Mercedes-Benz in Austria.

As Car & Driver points out, the new flagship looks a lot like Mercedes-Benz’s recent compact effort, CLA, but for people with very deep pockets. The exterior looks more refined than its predecessor and inside it should prove yet again why it’s the benchmark in executive luxury.

Expect the new S-Class to start hitting dealer lots before the end of the year, with a debut in the very near future.
