Default Merc working on a Flying Spur/Ghost-Rival

According to a recent report, Mercedes is developing a new sedan that will rival the Bentley Continental Flying Spur. Details are limited, but AutoCar says the model will be sold alongside the CL and resemble an "über-CLS." Furthermore, the car is slated to feature dramatic styling, a bespoke suspension and AMG engines. Besides being offered as a Mercedes, there are rumors that the model could spawn a Maybach variant. Nothing is official, but a source indicated the brand is looking at sportier models because of the interested generated by the Xenatec 57S Cruiserio coupe.

Wow, now that looks amazing. Bulky but gorgeous. The name 'Xenatec 57S Cruiserio', sounds like Xenomorph from the movie Aliens!

I fail to understand why Mercedes is persisting with its Maybach obsession. They need to dump this monstrous failure if they want to compete in the Rolls / Bentley segment
