Mercedes-Benz Ocean Drive Concept
I'm not usually over the moon about the design of a new Mercedes-Benz but the Ocean Drive Concept has me intrigued. It's got a bit of Bentley style with its oversized grille and elegant rear. The car is based on the V12-powered, long-wheelbase S 600 sedan and has a soft top but keeps you warm with the Mercedes Airscarf neck-heating system. The car has LED headlamps and taillights, two-tone paintwork and long side-window opening that is not interrupted by a B-pillar or window frames for a seamless look even when the top is up. The interior is done in leather with bird's eye maple trim panels. Some of Autoblog's commenters pointed out that it looks a bit like a Sebring. Perish the thought.
