Mercedes-Benz recently released a video on their YouTube account, sharing the story of how the latest 2014 S-Class flagship sedan came to be.
Of course, this was no easy task for the Silver Arrow as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is and has been a pinnacle ever since the first one was truly born quite a few decades below. This is even particularly important because this is the first S-Class to be completely redesigned from the ground up after the DaimlerChrysler “merger of equals” ended in 2007—a year after the last generation S-Class was introduced.
And most will agree, Mercedes-Benz suffered some tough years during their DaimlerChrysler years. Though because of its long-standing tradition for being the outstanding automobile that it is, the new S-Class is in terms of build quality, reliability and durability—three majorly defining points of what makes a great Mercedes-Benz. And let’s not forget attention to detail and craftsmanship, all of which seem to permeate through this latest generation.
It’s almost 16 minutes worth of documentary footage, and it’ll certainly provide for your lunch break. Check it out after the jump.
