Mercedes-Benz F700

Dubbed the F700, the large luxury sedan plots a direct path to the next-generation S-Class due in 2012, with state-of-the-art engine and suspension technology, as well as an advanced avatar-based controller system and radical new styling developed by the German automaker’s U.S.-based design studio in California.

WTF is with the front doors!? :puke:

Sort of looks like a big R-class with the wagon cut off it. I am not a big fan. In fact, :puke: :puke: :yuck:

That 1.8L engine sounds like a technological marvel...shame it's wrapped in something so ugly.

Puke after gagging me with a spoon.

I dont' care if it is principally for the technology, there is such a thing as overkill.

Very cool. A true concept, instead of a car that's 99% production ready with a few extra touches. Cutting edge design; an experimental drivetrain... I love it.

As an eye catching design exercise to showcase the company's new technology, it succeeds. This thing sure does attract attention (good or bad).

As a signal of future design direction for Mercedes, it fails. I hope this thing remains a design exercise and nothing more; it looks like they left an S-Class sedan in the sun too long.

I don't think there's an attractive angle on that car. And aren't concept cars supposed to have better materials and panel gaps on the interior than production cars? That dash is n-a-s-t-y.

I like it for the fact that Mercedes has truly and obviously given their designers and engineers the freedom to dream very well beyond production to a concept that is almost out of this world! It suceeds be it good or bad, but I'm sure a lot of this concept will be far more tastefully engineered into the final production piece. I actually like it a lot, and in the process they've earned a lot more of my respect!

OMG: it has fender skirts !!! Shades of 1975 (except that they're plexiglas !)

> FAR too radical for a production mercedes.

> The profile is absolutely, intolerably hideous.

> How is 238 hp (+20 with electric assist) "competitive" in a car that weighs 4500 lbs??? (Not to mention going from 382 hp to 238 ??)

> Is MPG really important to those paying nearly $90K?

> Is something amiss with the current s-class that M-B is showing a finished replacement not due out for 4 years? Backlash over the mazda fenders??
