    Re: Mercedes SLS AMG first picture

    On the contrary, it should never have been started. That car is so dam ugly it is not worth talking about, the thread was saved with some great pics.

    Hell its like the GTR, another butt ugly shitbox not worthy of talk that gets endless posts here.


    Re: Mercedes SLS AMG first picture

    Guys- I have to take back what I was saying about that car.

    Today Ive seen the first one in reality and have to say it looks much better as on the picture. The car is wide and wild! Also flat, long... just huge. Much better as on the pictures. Still - will not be my favorite car, but it looks indeed quit good!


    Re: Mercedes SLS AMG first picture

    Lars...Does the front end in the flesh look better than the pictures that are out? I am interested in this car but hope it is better in the flesh. Thx.


    Re: Mercedes SLS AMG first picture

    Jerry, the whole proportions are looking much better in reality. I liked the front end, I just wasnt shure about the new Mercedes rear-light style.

    The car is wide, long and flat, this makes it mean looking. I liked it a lot.!

     

     


    Re: Mercedes SLS AMG first picture

    Thank you for the feedback; there is no substitute for  actually seeing these new cars. It is not too surprising to find that it is exactly the same size (HXWXL) as the SLR which means it is a big car and is lower than most of the competition (3" lower than the Ferrari 599!). The cars will be available to drive here in California at an AMG event  at Laguna Seca this November; unfortunately it is sold out or I would go.


    Re: Mercedes SLS AMG first picture

    The front end is better in the flesh than the rear. The car has SLR genes and its foot print is very similar.

    Re: Mercedes SLS AMG first picture

    I have been studding the first pictures of the new  Ferrari 458. While I have been interested in the SLS, this new Ferrari has great numbers and looks awesome. Guess I better go talk to my friendly  Ferrari dealer. Wonder what the price spread will be? Ferrari had been talking about Scud pricing for this car (285000?) and Mercedes hasn't set a price either but the latest  rumors are 200,000 base.


    Re: Mercedes SLS AMG first picture

    ^^

    The Mercedes will be priced comparably against the 997TT at 146k and come well equipped. In other words, a compentent sports car with high daily usability as oppossed to the 458 which is as close as you can get to an Enzo wihout paying 600k.


    Re: Mercedes SLS AMG first picture

    The SLS base price will be around $170,000. The 456 $230-250,000.

    Each new generation of Ferrari has been made with the goal of making it more of a daily driver.  Certainly the 458 will be more so than the GT2 or 3.

    Re: Mercedes SLS AMG first picture

    Jerry, I guess this is the right approach. For the Ferrari we have seen stable prices even for used cars. For Mercedes we all now how fast they are dropping (even on SLS!)


    Re: Mercedes SLS AMG first picture

    The choice may be more obvious once they are officially introduced with pricing in place. Nick has stated prices well under what I have heard and I hope he is right. Both companies would be wise to be conservative in this economy or they will have even more  inventory sitting around. There is also some rumors that the Ferrari may not have a spider version any time soon which would impact  some buyers including me. The fact that the SLS is thought to  be pretty hard to get in and out off is also a factor. Decisions, decisions. This is fun!!
