Hiyah, new model mah...of course sales must beat that of its chief competitor, the 7!

 

If after billions of dollars of redevelopment - the new S Class sales cannot beat an aging 7 Series in sales in the first months, lagi mati man. [thumbsdown]

Every 3 to 3.5 years, a new merc s class and bMW 7 series will emerge alternatively. maybe Merc and BMW pakart one. When the next 7 series arrives, am sure the will achieve similar sales nos.

Yah they will take turns to lead the sales charts - they will also copy each other's design DNA to ensure success.

 

Look at the backside of the new S-Class - copy the one element that looked ugly on the 7 series (other then the headlights). Same backside style - Mercedes just made it look even uglier. [laugh]

The new S-Class already has this feature in the car. The BMW is just gonna implement it in ALL the models of their cars.

 

and i do believe, they are made from the same company.

Actually, the rear of S looks way better than the 7. No way it's uglier than the 7's [thumbsdown]

Its down to personal preference i guess, but I do like the FL 7 series.. Its got a lot more presence than the new s class.. the s class... hmm... looks like a maybach... very un-eyecatching

The new S-class rear gets its inspiration from the Maybach....there is some resemblance.

I think this new model has successfully regain it's king of the road status, it looks big and luxury.

I didn't like it from the picture but the real car looks good on the road, it's the same with the CLS.

A white CLS is madly beautiful... [inlove], but no feel for CLS of other colours [thumbsdown]
