It is the second time this year that a biker has captured the best spy videos of a Mercedes-Benz test mule. Earlier this year, a biker captured the A-Class prior to launch on the Lanzarote, and today the 2014 S-Class was spotted testing in Spain.

Mercedes’ new flagship will take several of its new design cues from the F700 concept that we saw debut back in ’07. More specifically, we can expect to see a larger, more upright grille and redesigned headlamps incorporating LED running lights. Based on the video and past spy photos, the shape of the saloon won’t change much from the current S-Class.
As for the engine, expect to see Mercedes’ latest lineup of engines, the 4.6-liter twin-turbocharged V8 as well as some V6 options. Without question, an AMG model will also follow suit with the new 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 in the S63 AMG.
