One of the stars of the Mercedes press conference at this year’s Geneva Motor show is a station wagon. Oh, but not any wagon; this is the CLS63 AMG S-Model 4Matic. It’s a lot of words, but this is a lot of car.

We know that McLaren is working on a successor to its F1 supercar, but now we’re getting word that McLaren is tooling away on another vehicle behind the scenes. 

According to AutoExpress, the new McLaren will be a competitor to the Ferrari FF, meaning it will have shooting brake styling and more trunk space than the traditional supercar . Rumors of a lower price tag (than the Ferrari) are also reported, with the car likely slotting in as a close competitor to the high end Porsche 911.

Apparently the vehicle will borrow the platform and engine from the MP4-12C, which means a 592bhp 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8, that should hit 60 mph in around three seconds.

The new McLaren could arrive as early as 2014.

Maybe the protests at Occupy Wall St. have merit after all. Nothing demonstrates that the rich are getting richer while the poor are getting poorer quite like the new 2012 Ferrari FF Neiman Marcus Edition. Marked a dear $395,000, an extra $95,000 over the “base” model, all 10 examples of the Neiman Marcus Ferrari FF were called for in just 50 minutes.

The Neiman Marcus FF wears its exclusivity on its interior number plaque and each will come in an elegant Grigio Caldo exterior color and a matching luggage set to compliment the Ferrari’s treated leather interior. To top off the package is an awesome Ferrari Winter Driving Experience that will be held in Aspen, Colorado. Rather than taking the limited edition Neiman Marcus FF’s up the mountain and risk damaging any one of these low volume vehicles, Ferrari will provide the drivers with factory FF’s instead for a memorable arrive-and-drive experience.

Moreover, only recently did we report of a brand new Ferrari FF that burnt to the ground so it is slightly assuring to know that each FF will come with a 7-year maintenance program as well.

Individuals who ordered the Ferrari FF Neiman Marcus also get the added bonus of receiving their cars by spring of 2012. This is much sooner than normal FF buyers, as they must wait as long as two years for their car to be delivered.

The controversial looks and unconventional format of the FF hasn’t stopped Ferrari from selling every example they’re building this year.

All 800 examples of the FF’s first year of production have been accounted for, after Ferrari completed their private previews with the well-heeled and interested in January. Those who are shelling out the $368,700 in May, when the FF officially goes on sale in Italy, will receive 2012 models.

Ferrari plans to limit production to just 800 cars a year, and has already started ramping up the assembly lines. They plan to build a maximum of 70 cars per month by June.

Mercedes-Benz will launch a new front-drive model for the United States market, aimed at capturing sales from a younger demographic, as the company seeks to stay competitive with rivals BMW and Audi.

A coupe and SUV have been confirmed for an expected 2013 launch, while a third variant is under considering. Mercedes is evaluating both a convertible and a shooting brake – a body style similar to the recently unveiled Ferrari FF – as possible candidates. The coupe model has been described as a close styling relative to the Mercedes-Benz CLS, while the SUV will do battle with the BMW X1 and upcoming Audi Q3.

The A-Class and B-Class compact hatchbacks (seen above) will also be built on the same architecture, but so far there are no plans to sell either in the United States, though Canada will almost certainly continue to get the B-Class, which is currently sold in that market.
