Mercedes’ 2014 S-Class is only a few days away from its official May 15 debut, but true form for the automotive industry, more information about the car leaked.

The car’s exterior design is already all but revealed between the accidentally released photo above along with pictures of a scale model. Interior photos were also already released, but the brochure offers a better look at the cabin along with some equipment details and technical specifications.

Technology and comfort features include 12.3-inch TFT screens for the instrument panel and infotainment screen. The climate control system also offers active air filtering and perfuming along with heated armrests throughout.

The regular wheelbase model is 201.4 inches long, 74.7 inches wide with a wheelbase of almost 120 inches. The extended version has a 204.6-inch wheelbase and sits at 206.5 inches from nose to tail. That means the car is longer, wider and lower overall while maintaining the same wheelbase.

European models detailed in the brochure include the S350, which uses a 3.0 liter V6 turbodiesel, the S500 with a 4.7-liter turbocharged gas V8 with 449 hp, and the S400 hybrid, which uses a 3.5-liter V6 with 302 hp.

The engine details come from one page of the brochure and probably don’t represent the entire S-Class range, which currently includes the S550, S600 along with the S63 and S65 AMG models.
