      I'd call it a shooting brake if the rear passenger doors weren't there, otherwise it's good looking for a stationwagon.

      This didn't transition from concept to production very nicely although it's really similar.

      If I stuck my R350 in the dryer and it shrunk, it would probably look close to this...

      Or maybe my R is the box this thing came in...

      I don't exactly hate it, but then again, I'm used to the R in the garage, so maybe my perception is off a bit...

      I don't like how the rear glass compromises cargo space so much. Bah.

      Hot damn. Love it. I think we're being double fooled by the window treatment; I suspect it still comes out like the last shown concept or whatever it was. Want.

      whatever mercedes is doing to their front end beak is repulsive. too quick between the model changes, they really are pushing the SLS front end.
