Mercedes has teased the press with this shot of their F 700 concept... is it just me or does anyone else see some Cadillac Sixteen in it:



The sleek long hood, tapered roofline, the abrupt slantback rear, angular posture, the exaggerated grille, and the near vertical jeweled head lamps... all screams Sixteen to me. I highly doubt Stuttgart would actually use a "lowly" Cadillac as inspiration but the resemblances are striking.

What do you guys think? Either way it'll be really interesting once the wraps come off.

Cant make a final judgement call until I can see the whole thing. Except for some similarities in the headlights though, not terribly so.

Eh, I can see it in the profile. Does that make me a profiler?

Hey, atleast it's not Toyota that's taking the Sixteen's design and making it into a production car!
