The all-new Mercedes-Benz S-Class will be unveiled tomorrow in Hamburg, Germany at the Airbus A380 delivery center.
While the A380 is the world's largest passenger airliner, the new S-Class promises to be "the epitome of a modern luxury sedan and Hamburg is the perfect place to showcase it to the world", according to Joachim Schmidt who works at Mercedes-Benz Cars, Sales & Marketing.
In related news, Mercedes-Benz has uploaded on its official Facebook account a sketch with what appears to be the coupe version of the S-Class. It might not depict the real car but at least gives us a clue about what to expect.

Cookstar - Thank you for some amazing videos. Any ideas when we can order the car? When do the order banks open?

I think the dealers have had a general idea of options for months now.... I read somewhere that delivery will start in September 2013.

No honest man needs a $100,000 luxury sedan, but after learning more about the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, we're drawn in by the astoundingly long list of new technology offered on the German automaker's latest flagship car. The 2014 Mercedes S-Class sedan has the technology to make even the most jaded luxury consumer take notice, and we can't wait to evaluate everything from the advanced automated parking system to the active perfuming system, and -- oh yeah -- the twin-turbocharged 4.7-liter V-8 with 516 lb-ft of torque. The 2014 S550 hits 60 mph in a Mercedes-estimated 4.8 seconds, down from the outgoing all-wheel-drive S550's estimated time of 5.4 seconds. Power is up 26 hp, but more important, the 2014 S550 will make more power than full-size flagship V-8 luxury sedans from BMW, Audi, and Lexus. The S550 still uses a seven-speed automatic transmission, but drag coefficient is down to 0.24 -- 0.02 better than its predecessor and 0.01 better than the 2012 Toyota Prius. While we don't expect significantly improved EPA-rated fuel economy compared to the 2013 S550's 15/24-25 mpg city/highway, the new Mercedes should offer a longer driving range and, like its predecessor, will not be subject to a gas guzzler tax. What may really blow away consumers, though, is the incredible array of new technologies and customization options the 2014 S-Class offers.
The S-Class has always been the car on which Mercedes introduces new technologies that tend to trickle down not only to less expensive models, but also across the industry. While it's unclear how easy it will be to repair all the 2014 S-Class' newly available technology down the road, the cars' first owners should delight in first-class features everywhere. For starters, loaded S-Class sedans will feature lighting from nearly 500 LEDs, including about 300 LEDs in the interior. The LEDs can be lit in seven colors with five dimming levels and four dimming zones. Mercedes is particularly proud of the Magic Body Control system. With help from Road Surface Scan, if the car's stereo camera detects unevenness ahead (like a speed bump), the car can prepare the standard air suspension for the roughness ahead. The automaker calls it the first suspension system with eyes. On the subject of technology with sight, the updated automated parking system can recognize parking spaces nearby. We've seen plenty of parking systems that help drivers parallel park, but are just starting to see systems that can pull into end-on spaces, too. Mercedes claims the S-Class' system can also get the car out of a previously auto-parked space by controlling the steering and brakes. As much as we love driving anything with 455 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque, we'll gladly take a back seat in the 2014 S-Class. Splurge on the luxury or reclining seat options and the rear seat has what Mercedes says is unrestricted legroom even in the full resting position. (The backrest angle is adjustable up to 43.5 degrees.) Mercedes claims the 2014 S-Class will be the quietest vehicle in its segment, a quality we welcome in all S-Class variants except future AMGs. For Chinese customers who'll never spend a minute behind the wheel of their new S-Class, the back seats can be ordered in a two-passenger configuration with a business center console in the middle. The hot-stone-style massaging seat functions can be ordered on the rear seats. Mercedes consulted physiotherapists and psychologists to develop its massaging seats, which in front have an integrated warming function and six massage programs. Seats with ventilation have four fans in the seat cushion and two fans in the backrest. The S-Class also offers heated armrests, and the rear seat belt buckles only appear when the rear doors are opened.
Once your chauffeur gets on the highway, he shouldn't have an issue staying in his lane. The latest version of Mercedes' Distronic cruise control works in stop-and-go traffic and can now keep drivers centered in their lane on straightaways and gentle curves, thanks in part to the stereo camera in the front of the car. The camera can recognize lane markings, or, when those aren't clearly discernable in traffic, the vehicle ahead, then apply the appropriate steering torque and stay in the middle of the lane. Two 12.3-inch displays keep the driver informed; one is an instrument cluster while the other is the central display screen. While some features may not make it to the U.S.-spec model, the screen can be equipped with Splitview, which shows the driver and passenger different content at the same time. The driver and passenger each get two circular air vents below the central dash screen, and there's no shortage of wood trim. All passengers might benefit from the adjustable active perfuming system, which Mercedes notes will not deposit perfume molecules on fabric surfaces or clothes. There's nothing coupe-like about a 206.5-inch four-door sedan, but that hasn't stopped Mercedes from referencing "coupe-style intentions" with the S-Class' revised exterior design. The 2014 S-Class' larger front grille is more upright, and the horizontal strakes stop just short of the chrome frame. From the front or the side, this is a design that current S-Class owners will easily recognize as similar yet different. From behind, a long strip of chrome lines the top of the license plate area and artfully lit LED taillights stretch the length of the car. The rear windshield's upper edges are rounded off for more "coupe-like" appeal, though two-door fans might simply wait for the anticipated CL-replacing S-Class coupe. With so much available safety, comfort, and luxury features, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class has more than enough in its technology arsenal to impress anyone who walks into a dealership. We wonder whether more moderately equipped models will have the same effect on drivers, but one thing is clear: The S-Class is back in the front of its class with plenty of wow

I really like what I see. The design on the front I wasn't crazy about but then I saw the aggressive lower lip look of the front bumper and I think it comes together really well. I mean, as has been said, I need to see it in person to appreciate it's full presence and design aesthetic. Technology/feature wise it seems incredible. What you would expect of an S-Class, and BMW needs to work on countering that with their 7-Series.

They finally updated the MBUSA.com front page to show off the new S-Class! It's only elaborated upon in the upcoming vehicles section but still some nice pictures.
