    That car is awesome. But the Ferrari looks classier, the SLR is a phallic rocket. I do like the side pipes though.

    I am sure the car will be a rocket, but the looks just do not turn me on. I almost feel bad for the SLR, as anythign following the McLaren F1 has huge shoes to fill.

    I dont think the SLR looks that great. It looked better in that issue of Car and Driver magazine that first featured the car 2-3 years ago.

    I think the back looks awesome and the nose looks hideous. Too bad they are puttingit on the new SLK too.

    I'm telling you guys... the front is ******. McLaren/Mercedes tried to make it F1 like Ferrari did with the Enzo but their car just came out as a blown (well, supercharged technically...) man-unit with wheels. With that said, I still think it looks cool in black especially if they remove that blasted star on the front end. If it's reliable like most Benz cars are then that would be the ultimate daily driver... and you'll get a supercar out of it too! Two birds with one stone!

    Another fine overpowered, unispired car from Benz. That has to be the ugliest thing I've ever seen.

    I liked it until this quote :

    "its like that penis mobile from the ambiguously gay duo SNL cartoon "

    Sadly, I just can't look at it the same again. :-(

    lol

    Something happened between concept and production which turned me off. The production car just dsnt look fluid and graceful - kind of a mess infact. The concept is gorgeous IMHO.

    If the fins are plastic, like on the SL55AMG, it will be a travesty.

    I am not sure this is really a competitor, I thought the price was close to the Porsche GT.
