What car is this???


This was posted on Motor Trend's FB page.
Taken on the 405 Freeway in L.A.
Most people guess it's a Mercedes. But somehow, the rear headrests and the wheels don't really say Mercedes to me...

Any ideas??

The wheels have a sort of VW vibe for me. Not sure why.

Saab?

New Benz. I'm thinking s class

I believe it to be a Benz or Mabach. Look at the long wheelbae and how the front wheels are closer to bumper then close to the firewall.

New Quattroporte ?

Alfa/Lancia version of the Chrysler 300?

Maybe it's the new Kia K9 (Hyundai Genesis variant)

Lexus IS?

It's the upcoming BMW Gran Coupè...
Slightly covered up with fake taillights and more.

How sad is it that we can't differentiate car brands by their basic shape? Yes, cars have truly become so generically styled that only the grilles, taillights, and symbols differentiate their look.

Look at the side mirrors. It's a dead giveaway for a MB product! Judging from the size, it's a new S Class.

MMD said...

almost certainly the new S-Class. It's a Benz, all the sedan models share the same rear view mirrors, like this car.

Quattroporte.

Looks like an evolution of the Quattroporte to me.

rdis said...

With a Michigan plate you could count out all those without a presence in the state: SAAB, M-B, Nissan.
