    Nothing wrong with that. Scirocco is a good-looking car, but let down by poor interior and bad rear visibility. Can't really judge new A-Class until we see it.

    I can understand what people think it is a step back rather than a step forward, but it is still a Merc and should therefore be a good car.

    Another POS Euro Box!

    Could be any number of VAG vehicles with a different badge, suppose at least it will blend in with the other motorway sheep...

    Never my favourite car, but at least the current A class looks different...

    I think the new standard A class is a nice car..
    This AMG version will only be better!

    We moan about the quality of the bodywork on late nineties and early naugties cars but that takes the biscuit. It looks so flimsy, like the panels have just been stuck on. Check out the panel gaps on the front wing in the photo below.

    That two tone matt/shiny black plastic, and all those dimples at the back of the car just look plain ridiculous. Even the aerial is in a silly place surely they should be integrated into the glass, or at least a sexy "bee-sting" jobby.

    No if this crazy Mad Max school of design is the future of Mercedes, then I'll buy a BMW next.

    Thats a prototype, the body has plastic panels attached to it to stop photographers from revealing the shape of the car before launch

    The ariel is to transmit testing data back to HQ and will not be on the final car. - its out of the window!

    Havent you seen any of the other Prototypes in other threads?

    For example, look at this W210 facelift spy shot from around 1998:

    No, I think you've been well and truly 'trolled' by Bobby D.

    I'll let you in to a little secret: Double-click the white space beneath the photo I included in post #10 and my little banner image, and as if by magic... ;)
