Look at the track on the rear passenger floor. The seat will move all the way forward and it will be very handy as a day bed if you need it in a hurry. Except the center console is on its way. An upgrade version of CLS. A competitor of the Maserati and Porsche New sedan come into the market next year. Dubai dealer is owned by a major MB shareholder, so this dealer always get first delivery.

I think it not too bad, especially when you presume it will be toned down for production costs. Still those high sides are getting on my last nerve. All manufacturers and I do mean all have gone to this fad for aerodynamics, safety, looks, and trunk space. Please stop it now. Please. I had to buy a used Lexus just to get away from it.

Interesting car, but will it ever actually be mass-produced in it's present form?

Don't believe everything you think

No, you need a truck with all the trunk space plus more. Pull back windshield will give you better mileage but you have to relocate your boot into your front like a 911. It will be harder to hit the vertex of the road when you are sitting further away from the front wheels.

I have to agree - that is one more step by MB into the world of senseless, book of records, styling miscues resulting in the eventual terminal ugliness. When BMW came out with their "new" styling ugliness, which started on the Z series cars and then infiltrated the sedan and coupe lines, I was aghast at the sheer ugliness of what was a beautifully styled line of cars. Then MB's current "S" Class came out with the same rear deck treatment - not only was MB now copying another maker's styling direction, they adopted the ugliest features to take a graceful looking line of cars and turn them into concoctions that looked like a hormone driven 16 year old got a "free" coupon for everything he wanted in a J.C. Whitney catalog. Granted they stuck the shit on with what looked like decent craftsmanship, but anyone owning a newer MB can testify that is not something to take for granted anymore.

The front end of that looks like someone started with an Audi SUV. FUGLY. Jim

The tool needed to remove the seals on top of the ADS 2 airmatic struts to install a struts kits retrofit for S500.
