Talking funny mirrors

Can someone tell me why Benz had to have the one side large and one side small RV mirrors on the front doors? Makes the car look very lopsided and ugly although the rest of the car is superb. Must be another of the eccentric ideas of the Benz designers which "they had to have". Haven't seen this in any other car I've known about. Looks like they thought it had to be bigger to assist the driver's view of that side of the car's rear before someone invented the curved RV mirror to show a bigger view(though a bit distorted) keeping the mirror the same size. The 190Es and 124Es had this, but they learnt about the curved mirror and had this in the C class from 1994 onwards which look more normal.
