Not likely

Several mysterious renderings of a sleek new Mercedes have surfaced online.

Little is known about the pictures but they were apparently created by Hussein Al-Attar in July 2011. They show an attractive sedan with softy curved surfaces, a prominent grille and distinctive headlights.

The Mercedes-Benz Passion Blog suggests the pictures are an early preview of the next-generation E-Class, but we're not entirely conceived as they seem more conceptual than production-intent. Considering Al-Attar also left Mercedes - to work on the head- and taillights for the BMW 4-Series Coupe concept - it seems unlikely that he would have headed such an important project like the E-Class.

Thanks to Markus for the tip!

The Model Code written above the Sketch indicates W213 which is most probably the Model Code for the Next Generation E Class as the Model Code for the current one is W212.

No it's not, facelifts don't get such codes, they get Mopf I, II etc added (which stands for Modelpflege, which is english for facelifted cars). Only new generations get new internal codes.

The grille and headlights look like conceptual phase for new c class looking at the spy pics for that car and timing of 2011 would fit
