It looks like the Benz GulWing right !
Any way the new design looks a bit funny from the front.
Interiors are pretty sporty

I can't wait for this car to get out soon, and if the reviews are anything to go by Mercedes-Benz is really getting back with a bang!

Do check out the new FEP pictures on some of the websites, the car looks so gorgeous, so perfect as if god took some time off the world and sat down to create something new, and the result is just amazing!!

Default Some pics

The new super sports car from Mercedes-Benz and AMG dazzles with its unparalleled technology package which includes: an aluminium space frame body with gullwing doors; an AMG 6.3-litre, front-mid V8 engine with a top power of 571 hp, 650 Nm of torque, and dry sump lubrication; seven-speed dual-clutch in a transaxle configuration; a sports chassis with aluminium double-wishbone suspension; and a kerb weight of 1,620 kilograms. It's a combination that guarantees supreme handling dynamics. The car's ideal weight distribution between the front and rear axles (47 to 53 per cent respectively) and its low centre of gravity emphasize the concept's pronounced sports car nature. The gullwing accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 3.8 seconds and has a top speed of 197 mph (electronically limited).

I'm sorry to say - but that is one of the most rubbish, fake and boring videos i have ever seen!

You have a great car like that, close to the pinnacle of MBs, and have to resort to hoopla to make an interesting video? That too 2+minutes of build-up and 10 seconds of fake action. Nah. Doesn't do it for me.


Here are some awesome pics straight from the Frankfurt motorshow.

I know I'm replying 5 months too late but just couldn't resist : What a super speedo shot. She's at 240 kph with the rpm on the redline....and there's still two more gears to go!! Talk about making a statement.

I hate the rear. Looks like they had no idea what to do with it. Profile is sweet though.

Looks more like a muscle car to me than a roadster.
