Mercedes is making good on rumors it would show a droptop S-Class at the Detroit show in '07. It's called the Ocean Drive Concept, and, true to speculation, it's a cabrio version of the company's flagship S600, fitted with LED lamps and something called Airscarf, which blows warm air blows around passengers on cold days. No production plans to speak of yet, but that's how it goes.

When I see a Mercedes driving down the street, I see a well-crafted stylish vehicle that I can't afford. When I see a Bentley I see a rolling waste of money driven by a self-obsessed person with more money than sense. When I see a Mercedes trying to look like a Bentley, I can't help but think that it's a car for people with little sense and less money.
