    Want some of that Ferrari "luster"? Try designing a megabuck car that is less ugly than a 1970's fiberglass kit car! Ugh!

    Red is not a flattering color for this model--not sure why. Turns out the final car isn't that much different from the cladding-covered spy shots we've been seeing. While the performance numbers are supercar-appropriate, this update of the 300SL has lost the sexiness and beauty of the original. Would have liked to see those "eyebrows" over the wheel wells, and maybe more of a Uhlenhaut Coupé SLR shape. For perspective, this new car is only 35mph faster than the original 300SL and 15 mph faster than the SLR--from 50 years ago!

    With the Chrysler nightmare banished, Mercedes felt the need to make their own Viper! You know it to be true. LOL.
