Mercedes-Benz will be displaying this concept car called the Mercedes-Benz ConceptFASCINATION at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. It is quite basically a fully undisguised teaser of the next generation E-Class front and possibly the E-Class Wagon’s rear in the guise of a two-door “shooting brake” body style.
If you look at the rear end styling of the current generation W211 Estate you get the feeling that that Mercedes-Benz was kind of at a loss at how to style the rear end. They ended up giving the W211 Estate rear end a similiar look to the W210 while the sedan went on to get a new style of taillamps. For the W212, the new E-Class Estate tail end looks like it came out of Mazda’s design studios.
Look after the jump for a collection of hi-res images.
