this car is not a merc concept, but a car made by alpine, as rightly prooved by google.

Mercedes-Benz RLS by ALPINE - Mercedes-Benz RLS by Alpine gives drivers the best 'seats' in the house

that said, this car is really ugly

This has got to be the ugliest car I have seen of late.
Pic#4 reminds you of nothing other than a swine!! However, I liked the concept of the seat attached to the door; seems pretty practical to me. Rest of it still remains ugly.

Ulgy it sure is, if this is made by Alpine then Merc should sue them for using their brand symbel upfront.

2 highly overrated, overpriced brands that price their products much more than their (better!) competition and skimp on really essential stuff at times (alpine, atleast)

Yuck ! What a waste. Comparing this concept to any animal would only be insulting the latter.

Just goes on to prove that all the resources in the world are useless if one cannot harness them in a proper way.

What a way to ruin an automobile. Wonder, how designers get such awesome ideas to ruin a vehicle?? Any idea what they do with such CONCEPTS after the displays and advertisings are over??

sk456 : Even Austin powers may think twice before touching this vehicle .

Looks like one of the Chinese knock-off designs ("replica" anyone?). Very surprised that Merc would even agree for one of their designs (and brand) to be butchered this way.
