On the sexy bulge.
Another possibilty is that the plenums are lower wider and biger, with maybe a stronger cross flow... For increased range of the VLIM.

They used to have them set quite far back and routed them forward for the inlets. But I guess the ERS cooler pipework proved to win out and cut down the Z height in the rear area. I would be curious to better understand what's going on under the skin of these plenums.
It might also be that Mercedes has something up its sleeve, with what is believed to be a super-cooling system within the inlet plenum for short bursts of extra power.
