UPDATED: 2008 Mercedes C-Class spied in the U.S.

(Updated from original 1:44 p.m. posting with new images). Mercedes-Benz has been hard at work testing its 2008 C-Class in Europe in preparation for an official launch some time next year (possibly at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show). Yesterday, Leftlane readers Pietro Devine and Kraig Turner spotted a very similar car just outside of Philadelphia. To our knowledge, this is the first time the car has been photographed on this side of the Atlantic. In total there are seven photos of the car, which were taken by Devine and Turner. We found the fourth image particularly interesting, as it shows how incredibly short the front overhang is on the car. "They were very very aggressive in trying to get away and block the car with other Mercedes as we chased them and took pictures with our phones," explained Devine. Image gallery after the jump...
