Technically it's not a Mercedes Benz, but a Mercedes-AMG.

"Slated for a debut in the fall at either Paris or Los Angeles (we're betting Paris), you'll note straight away that there's something wrong with this car's name. Where's the 'Benz?' Well, it's been ditched to, as Mercedes says, 'make the dream of the authentic Mercedes-AMG sports car come true.' Sorry Karl."

Looks too bulky for this kind of car and the 4 round vents next to each other look just ridiculous (Audi TT's 3 are already pushing it)

I don't know, I have to agree with disap.ed, something doesn't seem right with the interior. And the red lether with the embossed AMG logo seems borderline vulgar

This is a car for those who complain frequently about "soft-touch" interiors. Wow that's a lot of leather everywhere.

Looks like it could have an Android-powered infotainment system. Pretty positive those are Android back and home logos on the thing above the shifter.
Plus Mercedes and Google talked about integrating Android into their cars last year.
Heres a close up of the thingy

And heres the Google logo appearing on the navi screen

It's possible. The back button looks pretty android, but the 'home button' looks a bit more like a plain square, and a star is a bit strange (favorite apps?). I guess Mercedes is just putting their own twist on Android like most phone manufacturers do.

That's just this controller, already seen on the V-Class and C-Class. Haven't heard anything about them and android.
