Early images show a fastback design reminiscent of European classics. The interior has a resemblance to what we've come to expect from Mercedes, while the exterior blends muscle with elegance. Without badges you'd draw comparisons to Aston Martin, BMW and Audi.

Under the sleek skin is a 3.3-litre twin-turbo V6 which can haul the Stinger from standstill to 100kmh in 5.1 seconds.
