2008 C-Class

Click this link for the pic (or can anyone upload pic here? Mine does not work)

http://www.germancarfans.com/spyphotos.cfm/spyphotoid/6050718.002/pageview/photo/photo/Mini12/page/1/mercedes/1.html

Also, you can find the exact same picture @ “The Star� magazine January/February issue.

What do you think?
I think the car is very cool and sleek. Plus, it looks a lot bigger in the picture than the current C-Class.

RE: 2008 C-Class

It reminds me of the W220. Definately better looking than the current C.

RE: 2008 C-Class

I would think that the AMG version would be a C63 rather then a C55. Seeing as they said the 63 engine can fit in the current C chassis.

RE: 2008 C-Class

Do we think these photos are accurate?

Definitely looks more substantial and aggressive.

Which is doubtless intentional. Not crazy about the cartwheels or the Lexus lights though.

RE: 2008 C-Class

You may well be right. Same photo looks more convincing as a C when 8% narrower [:)]
