That is one elegant looking model. And I didn't know they collaborated with Pininfarina with this particular model. Love the long hood and the tail lights remind me of the old Cadillac Fleetwood.

I love the brown interior, wheels, it's a beauty all around :eusa_clap:  Congratulations on adding this, another BoS for me to consider.

I assume this means the car can be driven in reverse at the same speed as going forwards.....    :giggle:

Wow, what a great looking car!.  I wasn't aware Pinin Farina worked with Mercedes, though the did work with quite a few.
