2006 Mercedes-Benz R-Class
just woke up and was taking-in my daily automobile news & coffee, when I came across these pictures and this article about this new thing that Mercedes-Benz is apparently coming up with.
Talk about a bad start to a Sunday! Now, I'm a hardcore Mercedes-Benz lover but to me, this is an eye-sore (a horrible one at that) - maybe it'll look better when its done - will just have to wait and see.........

"Spy Shots: '06 Mercedes-Benz R-Class
The best view yet of the Alabama-based crossover.

GST, Grand Sports Tourer, Vision, W251. Call it what you want to call it, this is Mercedes' newest luxury crossover - now referred to as the R-Class. And these pictures - with only a few inches of tape covering the Mercedes star and parts of the lights - show more styling details than ever before.
The R-Class will be built along side the new M-Class and G-Class SUVs at the Mercedes facility in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and will arrive late in 2005 for the 2006 model year."
