    What is it with 90' Lexus style rearview mirrors these days... I know they must be bigger acc. to new EU rules but do they have to be fugly...Smiley

    Those mule pics look like official photos.

    The car will definetly have some retro look to it... lets just hope the interior will be done in the same style and have high quality feel to it.Smiley

          This SLS is pure POS IMHO. Maybe it will be technically something, just I do not like the way it looks...

    Re: News on SLS AMG

    WOW the last 3 pictures have sticker camo only so we see the white exterior through it. Looks rather boring. SL and SLR merged from the rear, and classic look from the front.

    Im excited to see it though!

    Re: News on SLS AMG

    I think the car is too heavy. Also the weight distribution indicates that the car will not be to agile on tighter tracks...

    Will be much faster than the SLR anyhow Smiley
     


    Re: News on SLS AMG

    There is a very intersting technical article in latest Auto Zeitung about SLS engine and gearbox. Nice technical achivement by Mercedes, but nothing special in comparison with Porsche, Audi or Ferrari.

    Re: News on SLS AMG

    Mercedes is good for taxis and comfortable geriatric limousines like a S-klasse lang.

    OK and the SL models have always had something with rich wives/girlfriends.

    The rest of their range, starting with the A klasse,  IMO is below par compared to other competitors from BMW, VW/Audi or Porsche. Even the ultra expensive SLR has proved a big disappointment.

    You guys are right about MB falling behind technologically. They need to catch up fast.

    Mercedes never was a technological leader on a broad basis, they certainly have been in terms of safety. Admittedly, the very first SL (gullwing) featured some impressive technology which this new edition should reflect.

    This car has very unusual proportions for a Mercedes and the curvature on the rear quarter panel is anything but common - so I would refrain from judging that car in terms of asthetics at this point of time. Smiley


    Re: News on SLS AMG

    Sorry but looking at the pics the camo is not that light. there is a lot of plastic that seem s to be higher that the actual metal so not sure you can tell much of the shape. It is a bit heavy when compared with the v8 r8, but not so much with v10 r8 and it packs more punch than both of them !!
