What are u talking about? The S-Class has remained rellativley unchnaged over the past few years,undergoing a few exterior refinements. But to compare a 1960 S-Class to a 2007 S-Class is like comparing a WWII P-51 Mustang to an F22 Raptor. Both have there pluses and minues. The F22 Raptor basicly evolved from the P-51 Mustange the same way the orignal S-Class has evolved into the current W211 S-Class. Mercedes tends to stay with a traditional look dating back to thier origns, which is probably why the S-Class hasnt chnaged too much over the years.
But the E- Class and C-Class have undergon major refinements so to speak. Take a look at a 97 C230 and a 95 E320, then look at pictures of a 2004 C-Class and E-Class, the lines are more rounded and cleaner giving it a more prestigious look. Ill try to get pics for you to compare.
