I never liked the Gullwing much so I was surprised to find this one good-looking. The headlights remind me of Nissan GTR though.

I think this is the first time I will ever say the vert looks better than the coupe.

Nice.

I can only imagine the amount of spit directed at this car from the aholes of the world. Nice verts seem to bring out the most jealousy for some reason IMO.

Yeah I prefer coupes over convertibles (E92 vs E93 perfect example) but I really like this and for me it looks way better than the coupe. The coupe looks great but this just looks better!

I like but that fabric roof looks like a thin condom. Put some sort of carbon fiber folding hardtop on it i'd say it would be close to perfect.

not feeling the vert at all. coupe is way better in my opinion. hate the wheel color on this car, and the headlights as well - they remind me of the previous gen. CTS-V.

Nice car. But MB's interior design just screams "old man" to me for some reason.

Pretty sure that is on purpose.

Of the 3 big German marques, MB is considered the most luxurious.


And the SLS is really growing on me. This roadster is definitely a step forward. I almost would like to see a 'Sterling Moss'-esque version.
