What's Wrong With This Picture: Mercedes Catches The Drift Edition
February 4th, 2010 8:38 AM Share
An AMG-tuned S Class Coupe prototype (note that the CL moniker has been dropped) gets stuck in a drift while testing in the icy north. Auto Motor und Sport reports that it took the combined efforts of an ML prototype and an S Class prototype to pull the beast from its icy resting place. Sportisch!

One of the lady engineers on our C5 Corvette development ride did the same thing one winter (Jan 96 maybe) somewhere in western MN. Some helpful locals in an SUV stopped by and helped us out-of shape GM folks push it out. I'm not sure if they knew what it was (it had camo) and we weren't allowed to tell them. But they are curious.
Here we see what happens when a corporation tests its cars by doing what a customer might do.
Hmm so if the ML Prototype sucked does that mean the new Cherokee will be as bad?
If they cover car badge like that, do they really think that folks would mistake A Merc Coupe for some other car with round badge, say an Opel, a VW or a BMW?
