    Because when one thinks of achingly beautiful automotive design, one immediately turns to the Cullinan?

    The few I"ve seen in person are monstrously large and monstrously crass. RR are always a little crass but in a gentile way, the Cullinan is just overtly crass. A half step way from whale penis leather.https://tflcar.com/2009/10/a-15-million-gold-diamond-armoured-russian-suv-with-a-whale-penis-leather-interior/

    reginos:

    What has happened to the traditional Mercedes front grille? It has been abolished on all except the S class or customers prefer the one with the big star in the middle.

    I haven't seen one on C and E  limousines for years now.

    The original grille with which many generations grew up,  had something grandiose that separated Mercedes from the rest.

    With this "sporty grille"  they all look similar from A class and beyond.

    The front is OK but the rear... SmileySmileySmiley

    I think the car is ver good ooking, yes I also have some issues with gthe rear, i basicaly dont like any rear in the actual lineup, but the c- class is wayyy better than the s class IMO.

    all in all a really good looking car.... 


    Re: [2021] Mercedes C-Class (W206)

    Oh, you were responding to the new Mercedes C class.  Was a bit confused for a moment what was being described as the rear.

    Seriously: We saw several Cullinan in Dubai and it really looks much better in person but the car is color sensitive.

    Re: [2021] Mercedes C-Class (W206)

    We have one in our neighborhood, and I had a chance to look at it at length in the grocery store parking lot. I agree it is not as bad as I had assumed; in fact it looks fine. However, it does not have any of the presence one would expect from an RR. The proportions just are not there. It would need to be longer, given its height.

    I'm not a RR fan at all but I always liked the Ghost for whatever reason. The Cullinan looks as if RR tried to make a SUV with RR design elements but I think it looks a little bit too massive for a SUV, more like a Phantom than a Ghost, speaking of design language, if this makes sense.

    Enmanuel:

    Should I hate it today so i can like it tomorrow? 

    Smiley The rear is horrible, same as the new S class (or new E class). 

    The new S class looks hideous from the rear, I already know two guys who owned the previous model (S63) and didn't order the new one anymore. One of these guys got himself a Cullinan, something different (he wanted the new Ghost but kind of fell in love with the SUV). The other one is probably getting a G63 instead. Smiley

    The Cullinan?? Quite possibly the worst example of car design in the last 20 years, only thing that may compete for this award is the Pontiac Aztec....

    Same thing with this thing: Very color sensitive. Saw one live at the dealer in white and it looked really nice.

    Me too! But seriously, the Cullinan is flabby and gross.

    You need to see it live. It is a massive SUV. I wouldn't get one (I think), I still love the Urus and the G63 too much and the only Rolls Royce I would be interested in, if I had tons of money, would be the Ghost. Nothing else.

    I can see the appeal for the Cullinan though, it is a statement.

    Saw the new C class on the Autobahn Munich-Stuttgart last Saturday, without any camo, looked quite nice from the rear, better than I thought initially. My son took a pic with his smartphone, will post it.

    Re: [2021] Mercedes C-Class (W206)

    I have seen the Cullinan. It’s bloated and unpleasant, in my opinion. We don’t have to agree, different strokes for different folks...

    With the right color schemes, I think all the smaller Rolls cars can be very nice. Wraith, Dawn and Ghost. But I am most interested in what they do with EV. There’s chatter that it will be called “Silent Spirit” but I haven’t seen any believable sketches. Maybe someone on RT knows something?

    I’ll watch for your C class pics...


    Re: [2021] Mercedes C-Class (W206)

    Outside of handling and performance, I like the whole Rolls lineup.


    Re: [2021] Mercedes C-Class (W206)

    Best one...nothing spectacular but I think it looks better than on initial pics.

    Looks somewhat Alfa-Romeo Guila like, especially at the rear with the shape of the taillamps.

    Re: [2021] Mercedes C-Class (W206)

    I think this car has great proportions and IMO its the best looking sedan at the moment from Mercedes... I really dislike the S-Class... but here all seems to be right.


    Re: [2021] Mercedes C-Class (W206)

    Suffers from the Prius rear wheel syndrome. The read 3/4 view the real wheel looks so small against the rest of the car. Like it's a 15 inch wheel...
