Does the new Mercedes-Benz really look like a PS5?

It might not be a crossover any of us saw coming, but Mercedes-Benz has shared the first release of cars from its collaboration with Sony. It’s purportedly based on the PS5 console, but from where I’m standing any connections are flimsy at best. Sure, Mercedes might be an iconic brand, and it may have one of the best car logos around, but you’d be forgiven for feeling slightly underwhelmed by the design. 

50 of these cars, known as the ‘A-Class Vibes’ have been released. The motor has a ‘Digital White’ exterior with blue ambient lights, and a black leather interior. It’ll be sold exclusively online through Mercedes-Benz Italy, and each purchase comes with a PS5 Digital Edition console and a copy of Gran Turismo 7. It has the latest MBUX multimedia system with a double 10.25-inch multimedia display and a Nappa leather multifunction sports steering wheel, as well as 18-inch five-twin-spoke AMG alloy wheels.
