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.
