Speaking to the media at the launch of the new F800 Style study, Mercedes-Benz’s design boss Gorden Wagener said that all future models will have their styling inspired by the new concept. He said most of the styling inspiration will be apparent at the front end of all future Mercedes models, starting with this year with the new CLS-Class.
Wagener also said that all future models will come with LED daytime lights as standard, however, the light’s “expression” will not be aggressive.
When asked by AutoCar what elements of the F800″s design will make production? Wagener said: “the front end shows our new brand face. All future models will get this and there will be a full alphabet of Mercedes cars with this front.”
He also said that there will be a more standardized styling with the interiors as well.
“There will be family recognition in our interiors and things like the F800″s centre console and wraparound dash will make production in future Mercedes,” Wagener said “You can see the F800″s interior in a C-class.”
The new Mercedes-Benz F800 Style Concept, which hints at the next-generation CLS, will debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show.
