The S-Class Pullman is expected to be unveiled at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show next month but a custom luxury automobile design company named ARES Atelier has already released a super-stretched version of the S-Class inspired by the Pullman 600. The company based out of Modena, Italy is relatively young as it opened just last year. However, judging by the pictures, their creation dubbed the Mercedes S-Class XXL looks like a job well done. ARES has stretched the chassis of a regular S-Class, reinforced its structure, and installed a carbon fiber body kit. Additionally, a series of other upgrades such as 6mm thick tempered side glass, better brakes, revised gearbox, and 21-inch wheels have also been added.
A lot of information on the Mercedes-Benz S-Class XXL has been kept under the wraps, which include details on the powertrain. All we know is that the engine has been enhanced to output more than 600 hp (441 kW). This means the S-Class XXL can go from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.8 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). On the inside, uber-luxurious features like Nappa Italian leather, carbon Alcantara, custom sports steering wheel, enforced individual air conditioning, hands-free intercom, 8 spotlights for the rear compartment, 17″ foldable HD flat screen, iPad control, electric curtains, upgraded sound system with 30cm subwoofer and premium 5.1 equalizer complete the upgrades to the cabin.
