    So AMG now comes in two flavors? One hot AMG…and one hotter meaning V8 versions.

    Ever time I see the new E, C, S class I cant help but think they should SO much more elegant and better looking. This generation really take the jelly-bean design language to new heights and is a major, massive letdown. Sure, all dolled up in AMG guise they can look decent enough, but these aren’t nearly as attractive as the latest Audi and, dare I say it, BMW designs (which also mostly suck). The MB’s design isnt outwardly offensive. Rather, its SO inoffensive its offensive. Have some guts, MB, make beautiful cars again!
