The current E-Class from Mercedes-Benz may be a little too anonymous and fits in with an ever-growing cast in which all sedans are pretty a lot will look the same. That was not always the case, and this designer's pet project shows us what we could do with some retro flourishes.
Unfortunately, the Mercedes-Benz Icon E concept is far from official. Instead, it was designed by David Obendorfer, a guy who has a habit of creating super cool retro-inspired concept cars in his spare time that we've written about before. Things like a Fiat 600 Abarth concept, the BMW CS vintage concept, and the super cool retro Citroen van, which actually went into production as a kit.
According to Obendorfer, the Icon E Concept is not just any computer model Autocar. Apparently it is to be built on the current E-Class chassis and almost corresponds to the dimensions of this vehicle.
