Remember two months ago when Rolls-Royce
revealed an illuminated hood ornament? Well apparently Mercedes-Benz
has taken notice, offering its iconic tristar emblem in illuminated form as well. The glowing star is being offered by on the M, GL, C, CLS and E-Class models – at least those that have the star mounted in the grille (instead of atop it) and not fitted with Distronic adaptive cruise control (which houses its cameras in the grille emblem). The star illuminates when the doors are unlocked or the engine turned off.
