Mercedes strikes again with a boring press conference that had me wandering the Lexus booth instead of paying attention. There was a group of interpretive Rent-looking dancers that made no sense. Otherwise, the cars were very nice inside, definitely aimed towards American tastes, but outside I'm not too thrilled with the droopy side-rear window look. And they are pretty big cars up close. As the crowds die down I'll get some more shots. The R350 is the V-6 and the R500 is the V-8.
