Here are some amateur shots of a rather unintended early preview of the next generation Mercedes C Class.

When a small group of Daimler-Chrysler engineers with two test cars of the new C-Class took a turn on the German Autobahn A1 near Cologne, one of the prototypes ran into technical trouble and stalled in the middle of the emergency lane next to the shoulder. To dig deep into the innards of the top secret car, the engineers had to lift the disguise from the front end before being able to open the hood.

And there it came to light – the all new front end styling, larger headlights and grille and a new hood. All in all the next C-class is adapting styling elements from the S-class.

The model range will officially debut at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show.
