I don't think it is a very good looking car, in fact Ferrari hasn't made many good looking cars in a while, they seem to have peaked in the 90s as far as styling goes.  Maybe that is why old Ferraris are worth so much, these new ones don't look so good.

I wanna know when was the last time Mercedes built a truly beautiful car?

And I want SMK to answer that question just so I could know what he deems beautiful.

I could compare his Mercedes choice of beauty with what Ferrari has created...and then I could come to a conclusion to see if SMK's opinion on this is genuine or simple fanboy fodder!

The 1930's SSK is truly a masterpiece.

But Ill go 20 years later with the Gullwing and its roadster sibling as the last beautiful Mercedes created. 

The retro Gullwing in the new Millennium is something I admire, but I also see it as a Dodge Viper wannabe negating it as a truly beautiful Mercedes for me.

I am waiting for you to tell me what was the last Mercedes Benz car to be beautiful to you.

I truly want to know so I could judge you and your tastes...

I want to compare your beauty M-B with the same era Ferrari and then compare your M-B beauty with the history of Ferrari beauties as a whole... 

Then we could discuss M-B's overall history of beautiful cars too if you would like...

Every SL looks good, the SLS AMG with the gullwing doors, McLaren SLR, S-class coupe and convertible of this generation, 2004 CLS, G-wagon looks good too.

Not all.  Actually, most SLs in history have a very very generic styling. 

McLaren SLR?  Its not a beauty queen by any means. Its just as ugly as any Ferrari in this era...

You are very fanboyish to even think that these cars you presented are nicer than Ferrari in the same time frame. Even if its your opinion on them...

Ferrari went ugly, I agree.  But for you to diss Ferrari but be serious to tell me that you find these Mercedes cars better looking is telling me you are not genuine...

Ill give you the Gullwing AMG SLS.  In this time frame, the SLS blows ANYTHING that Ferrari created in the looks department. But had it NOT been for Chrysler for the cash and Dodge for the platform, the SLS would have NEVER been created...

Everything else is just as ugly, as Ferrari. In some cases, very generic. At least Ferrari cannot be accused of being generic... 

But thank-you for responding.

  • Chevy Estimated Range for Silverado EV Work Truck Raised to 450 miles

    When Chevrolet initially took the wraps off the Silverado EV last year, GM had estimated up to a 400 mile range based on its own calculations.  As the Silverado EV has made its way through development, it went for EPA certification and came back with 50 miles more than GM's estimate.  With this new EPA certification, the Silverado EV has an over 100-mile advantage over its only on-sale competitor the F-150 Lightning Extended Range (320 miles). The Silverado EV will launch first in WT trim with t

    All New 2024 Toyota Tacoma Yearns For Adventure

    The Toyota Tacoma has been the best-selling mid-size pickup in the U.S. for nearly 20 years. Holding such an important place in the lineup, Toyota has been very conservative with updates in the past.  The outgoing generation ran for a full 7 years, but even that was based on a platform that dates all the way back to 2004.  For 2024, the Tacoma sheds the old platform entirely and joins the Tundra and Sequoia on Toyota's new TNGA-F global truck platform.  The 2024 Tacoma is the latest (and final)

    The Ford Ranger Raptor Finally Comes to the US

    After years of being forbidden fruit offered only in overseas markets, Ford has finally deemed the Ranger Raptor worthy enough to bring to the U.S. The biggest reason for the U.S. not getting the prior version was its standard diesel power and the inability of the platform to take a sizable V6 engine. When Ford redesigned the 2024 Ranger (read more about the 2024 Ford Ranger here), they made sure to alter the engine bay and chassis to accommodate a V6. Powering the Ranger Raptor is a 3.0-li
