the SLS looks amazing, never mind the colour!

Is it coming on sale in India?

The colour is not all that bad really, though my choice would be silver (ala the old Gullwing) About being on sale, going by the trend, you'll see a few of them on the road before you can say SLS !!

SLS looks hot, i feel somewhat its rear doesnt gel with the front.There is nothing to complaint about Merc Pavilion, except for one thing, No G-wagen (atleast for display).

The rear door looks like suicide one's for me,so 4 door

The SLS looks cool,the design theme is what other supercars should follow(llloonggg bonnet!!)
No sign of GL or the E coupe.
the colour in SLS looks ridiculous,could have been silver or black.

Some more pics of the SLS :

This was the jaw-dropping part of it for me

The wheelwells are lined with FELT !!!!

Pop-out handles (awkwardly low though, and when the gullwings are open, people tend to hit their heads on the door when getting out).

Didnt any of you come across the 6 crore S class. I was watching headlines today about an hour ago and they were showing this car. Super built. Bullet proof. Some B4 grade of safety. Forgot the name given.

I quite like this Desert Edition or whatever it was, right from the time it was unveiled at the Dubai Show. Done quite tastefully, brakes and everything. The door handles are ridiculously low though.

I wish they displayed B-Class as their SMALL car for India and then launch it just below 9 Lakhs


At least I could have afforded a Merc (a B-Class @ 9L) someday

To me it looks like the front (especially the grill ) has been designed by DC Design. I did not like it at all.

Wasn't the E class coupe supposed to be unveiled at the auto expo?

Unhappy

I thought they would launch the C250 CGI with the 4 pot (1796 cc) 204 hp & 310 NM @ 2000 - 4300 RPM & the C250 CDI with 204 hp & 500 NM .

Any news on E250 CGI & CDI ?

The C250 makes 204 BHP & 246 NM of torque (2,900 - 5,500 rpm) from a 2.5 L V6 engine:
