Not sure what MB I just saw

Spotted on the freeway yesterday, never seen it before and didn't get a chance to take a picture/video.

-From the back I initially thought it was a C300/C350, except that the mufflers are "encased" in the bumper, rather than sitting under the car.

-No badging on the back except for the MB symbol and some word in italics on the right, couldn't get close enough to read it

-There was some kind of air intake thing going on behind and following the shape of the front wheel

Any ideas?

Definitely wasn't a Maserati. Was -very- similar to C300/C350 body and styling. Also had the MB symbol on the trunk, though we all know that isn't the best indicator.

Just did some Google image searching....the air in/outtake was somewhat similar to the first picture below, maybe just not as 'aggressive' (at least from my vantage point)?

But the exhaust/mufflers were -not- similar to the 2nd picture, they were much closer to those in the 3rd picture below.

Sounds like a C63 Black Series to me.

Possible, but I could have sworn the one I saw had 4 doors.

$h!t. I've seen some aftermarket fenders on here that have vents behind the front wheels, but I don't remember where I saw them. Doesn't explain the exhaust, but it could just be a tuned/heavily modded 300/350.

Yeah that's what I'm starting to think at this point myself.

Sure it wasn't a new CLS 63? From a distance, they match your description.

Where on Earth did you see this? Maybe it was a AMG mule of this W205 prototype/rendering?

Yeah definitely not this. I got as close as 7-10 car lengths away and even at that distance I initially thought it was another C300/350.

Yeah the "Wald International" pictures I posted were the closest looking so far.

Heavily modded C Class I'm guessing. Someone pieced some stuff together to make a combo they liked.
