Dear lord is that ugly. Bentley must be happy, if this is made like this, the bentyaga might no longer be the ugliest expensive car....

However, Lada might have really jumped early onto the Cross sedan band wagon ;)

I think this is the Maybach version of a sedan-ized new GLS.

Certainly it is; Question though: Who exactly asked for a sedanized large SUV? The shape is beyond vulgar and ugly....

It looks quite good actually, and would look good a a sedan (lowered smaller wheels), so S Class, and as a GLS (wagon this). Extending the wheelbase to have a straight rear door and slightly lengthening the rear overhang would make it s luxury hardtop pickup. For comfort it would be nice to have a separated cargo area, like the Volvo XC90 or the armored B6 GLE and X5.

This is horrible photoshop, right? This is not the real thing, right?

It kind of looks like an enlarged 4-door Suzuki X90.

hopefully this front end design actually shows up on the next S class. The entire thing would actually make a beautiful new range topper if you give it a conventional ride height.
