The long wheel wheel base sedans or the limousines, as they are popularly known as, are generally customized vehicles and not many auto manufacturers deal in this genre. Infact, only a handful of manufacturer build limousines are available, and one such used to be the Mercedes-Benz Pullman. And it seems like the Mercedes is reviving the Pullman name again and at a price tag double than the Rolls Royce Phantom.

Recent spy of the car in its disguised avatar indicates that it will be a long, extra extra-long version of the S-Class sedan. Spotted testing in a prototype version, this will be the sixth and final variant of the latest-generation S-Class. The other variants include: standard size sedan, long-wheelbase model for U.S, the stylish coupe, an upcoming convertible, and an another stretched model that is expected to revive the Maybach name.

The inside of the Pullman is expected to be a 2+2+2 seating arrangement, with the four seats in the rear facing each other. Aimed at Presidents, world dignitaries and ultra-wealthy individuals, the limo will also come in an armored version. A German firm, Brabus, who has earlier collaborated with Mercedes to launch a car, is believed to be helping with the development of the new S-Class Pullman, particularly in the area of armor protection.

Under the hood, the new Pullman will get the same S600, as the previous-generation S-Class Pullmans, meaning that it will be powered by a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V-12 engine capable of generating at least 523 hp and 830 Nm of torque. According to the photographer who took the spy shots of the car, the prototype was hitting speeds in excess of 220 kmph.

But, as they say, quality comes at a price and so do this large size limo. The Pullman is expected to sport a very large price tag, as high as $1 million and that's twice the nearest competitor, the Rolls Royce Phantom, which retails at around $400k. The expected launch will be next year and some speculate it will debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show next September.
