I would rather by the old one instead of this thats for sure.

I am not a fan of the interior and the exterior doesn't do it for me

Plus it seems B&O pimping out its soundsystem to everyone now. First Audi, then Aston Martin and now Mercedes :/

A few years ago, a mint condition old one here with red paint is asking for around C$ half a million ...

I hate circle vents in luxury cars. Options cost quite a bit but the car is very expensive.

To me, its cool Benz is making it.

For what it's going to cost I think that car is horrible looking. The gull wing doors are the only "cool" part because the rest of the design is quite ugly.

Looks kinda Z4/Z8ish to me for some reason - well maybe even a little uglier. The rear looks kinda resembles a Genesis or Accord coupe or something like that...

I'd much rather take the original if I had like $1m layin' around.

Huh? That's not plastic, that's real aluminum ... and lots of leather everywhere in the interior. I'm not a fan of the interior's styling, but the materials themselves are top notch.

And while it may "look" like a Genesis interior, the only reason for that is because Hyundai interiors mimic so many other brands and have NO originality!

I always find it funny seeing enthusiasts saying "X car looks like a Hyundai _____" or "X interior looks like a Hyundai _______". People have it the other way around. ALL these Hyundai exteriors and interiors look like other cars, NOT the other way around.

It looks good ... for a sports car. For a supercar, I agree ... it looks really dull and very dissapointing. There is nothing "super" about it's exterior or nothing exotic about it.

It's about as exciting as the GT-R exterior, except this car will cost so much more.

The SLR definitely looks more exotic and like a supercar than this.

It's not impossibly gorgeous but it will have some serious road presence. I love it.
