During summer, we posted the first-ever spy shot depicting the futuristic dashboard of the forthcoming S-Class (see HERE), due at the end of 2012. Not many things have changed since that moment, as the prototypes still carry a provisional version of the final piece. While the instrument cluster and the central display of the infotainment system come straight from the F 700 prototype, we know the Stuttgart flagship is bound to receive a revolutionary interior architecture which combines strategic elements previewed on the F 700, F 800 and F 125! research vehicles. Both interesting and intriguing are the looks of the new and uber-classy centre console, defined by a large piece of wood and displaying four circular vents and an evolved variant of the HVAC system. Because of the heavy cladding, other visual details of the dashboard still remain hidden to the naked eye.
