[VIDEO] 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class gets new promo with Michael Schumacher image

Multiple Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher is the star of the new 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class commercial.

The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz is using Michael Schumacher in the latest add for the new S-Class generation and this is like Ferrari would use Mika Hakkinen for promoting the LaFerrari. Mercedes’ ways are strange but who are we to doubt them? Anyway, the footage in question can be seen below, right after the jump, and if you hear words like “the best car in the world” is probably because this is true. We have to warm you that you won’t get to see Schumacher drive fast the S-Class on a track.

The new generation of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which is wearing the 2014 model year in its name, has been officially presented to the public just a few months ago and it has been referred to as “the best car in the world” numerous times. The model in question is already available for order as the S350 BlueTEC, getting a 3.0L V6 engine with 258 HP and 620 Nm of torque, as the S500, with a 455 HP and 700 Nm 4.7L V8, or with the S300 BlueTEC Hybrid, with 204 HP from a 2.1L unit. There is also an S400 Hybrid, with an electric motor and a 3.5L V6, producing 306 HP.

    I don’t get why is strange that Schumacher promotes a Mercedes car since he drove 3 years for them in F1 (and some more before even getting to F1 in the first place) and is a Mercedes Benz ambassador since he retired.
