Was ist das? Under that evil cladding is the Mercedes W212 E-Class, due early next decade after an intro at the 2009 Frankfurt show, say spies.

Under the E-Class's new skin will beat the heart of a cyborg. Roadway precision will be strictly enforced via driver-assistance features like lane-departure warning, retinal tracking, traffic-sign identification, road-condition sensors, and smart stability control that crunches data from crosswinds and tire wear.
