Now that's impressive. I like the blurb about the "program for the transmission and airbrake". Technology at its finest! I'll take 2 of them!!!

It looks like Count Dracula's nose from Sesame Street. Technology may be great but Benz could have made it more sexy and appealing.

No offense to any owners, but I am not impressed. Yes, the power is amazing, electronics, ride, but it's too similar in looks to the SL500 and SL55.

If you are going to build a supercar for your fleet, it should differentiate itself completely from other models.

I.E. the Ferrari Enzo and Carrera GT to name a couple.

Pictures don't do it justice....you have to see one in person. I was impressed. Salesman said that to replace the hood it is over $40K !!! I liked it. Dave
