Ummm, well...

According to MB Germany, with the current exchange rate, a bone stock C-350 Sport sells for $59,825 USD. Here in the US, the same car retails for $39,875. So, that would be 45% cheaper in the US than in Germany.

That's funny, I spend a lot of time in Mexico, and down there locals fondly refer to Lincoln Town Cars as, "Mexican Mercedes." Economies of scale, I suppose. Hermosillo, Sonora is just about to get thier first Benz Dealership though, so perhaps that will change soon. LOL
