Confused Chevy HHR thinks it's a Mercedes
If I were a Chevy HHR, I wouldn't want to be me either. Spotted by an Autoblog reader in Anaheim, California, this Heritage High Roof is sporting all manner of Mercedes badging, from the big three-pointed star on the grill, to the center caps on the wheels and the steering wheel. Dubbed an LS 500 4 Matic if the badging out back is to be believed, it has traded in its Motown roots for a purer pedigree that traces a line directly back to Mercedes-Benz HQ in Stuttgart, Germany. GM engineers did tune the HHR SS Turbo on the Nurburgring, but we don't think this is the type of German engineering with which they were looking to associate Chevy's little people mover. Thanks for the pics, Oli!
