Default A big WOW on the way home...

These things are just SO impressive (even in white)!

PS I wasn't sure where to put this thread, so if it's inappropriate here please feel free to move it elsewhere...

I give you the Mercedes SLS:

I like the GTR. I think it would look better without the wing on the back though. The lines of the car feel more cohesive than some of Mercedes other more recent models that seem to be too busy with all sorts of body creases etc. This is why I would also remove the Wing. Not sure of the colour choices available for the GTR but it would look great in a vibrant blue or something like that.

Maybe fans of white cars will not agree, but white is always good colour to see how a car looks. If the design can look good in white (not easy) then it's probably got something going for it. I've only owned one white car and it was one I could not pass by ( a W111 250SE coupe for $3500)

Hanging my head in shame that I didn't recall the difference BW the SLS & GTR, but a web search clearly reveals the difference! That said this must be an 'older' model since it seems the 'new' ones have a vertical grille and not a horizontal bar.

FWIW white cannot be regarded as a 'colour' and black is really just the absence of light.

I prefer either sharper contours, or edges since the new coupes seem to lack a bit of character.

And why on earth did they have to name it a GT?? If I had a dime for every car called that I could actually buy one!!

Easiest way to spot an SLS is by the fact it has gullwing doors, unless itís a convertible.

Being a flagship model they shouldíve retained the gull wing doors unless there was a valid functionality issue for them to be eliminated. Iím still not sold on the shape of the headlights either. The shape of the rear in the coupes is too rounded & makes them look like a boat... That said at $350k theyíll always be a Wow!
I really liked the SLR 722 and itís a shame they were not a big hit with customers.
