Merc S550 - Even Uglier Than BMW750!

Thu Apr 20, 2006 8:04 am

I just saw the new Mercedes S class walking home from work. God is it ugly! I thought MB was the last bastion of elegant design, I mean, even a Lexus looks better!

Ach du lieber - what is going on in Germany???  boggled

I don't like the new BMW 3 or 5 series either. And what's up with that mini-van thing that MB came up with? I've seen a few, it's even worse than the E Wagon. I mean, if you are going to spend the bucks for a Benz, please don't buy a minivan or a wagon!

Yes, the new S class is definitely ugly. And it will appear even more ugly if you look at the inside - there is a wannabe-luxury analog clock in an antique grandmother-pearl-brown. My Casio I was wearing when I was 12 looks better Big grin

To be fair, though, the last S-class looked so great that it is hard to make a better looking car. The new S-class is a great car, but I preferred the older one in terms of design. At least, it still looks better than the S-class of the early nineties...

The exterior of the old one was far better IMO. Teamed up with some nice AMG alloys and it looked great  biggrin 

Just a shame underneath it felt like it was put together by chimps....and mal-coordinated chimps at that
