What the hell does all this have to do with the car? It's PRETTY, and WELL DONE, but has ZERO to do with the benefits of the car. It's a bunch of design masturbation, is all.

I like it. Not very Merc, but perhaps that's the point. Trying to be less stuffy? I like the proposition - be selfish.

brief: make ppl blow cash on a car they dont need
ideation: make people realise that hoarding (saving) is stupid - the money they save will be spent for them if they dont spend it on themselves.
