The 65 version is going to look insane.

The LEDs are a blatant Audi/Porsche copy, and the bumper itself is a bit on the generic side, and it's conservative. It's just meh to me. They made it look even more like an old person's car.
After looking at it again today, I think the same. Actually I see some Maybach in the rear design esp with these new rear lights. I still think it would look good with AMG kit but right now the new 7 series is best in the class in design.

I actually like the classy look of the current S-Class.

Im just not sold on the new 7. The new 7 has WAY to big kidney grills...
