Looks like a silver Batmobile. No thank you. I'll keep my classy SLK 55.

It looks weird and its highly unpractical, I'd get a 722 coupe and call it a day the rest of the 500,000 I'd invest.

Let's see, for a million USD, you could get:
A nice new 55 ($75k)
A Lotus for track days ($60k)
A C63 AMG for family trips ($80)
A nicely equipped truck to pull the Lotus to the track ($40k)
Another 55, for days when you want a different color ($75k)
A Porsche Cayenne for off-roading fun ($80k)
A Ferrarri, in case you don't think the rest of the stuff sitting in your drive makes enough of a statement ($250)
And four more 55s for the neighbors, just because I can't think of any other cars I want, off the top of my head...

I agree with DJ...

I would probably pick up a Lambo (250k~) and a Ferarri (250k) so I can alternate between which car to show off in. A Range Rover for the off roading, and maybe a couple V12 AMGS if I get bored.

Actually you need a $1m in loose change as well as an SLR in your garage if you want that.

I've seen all of the other pictures and a video of it and I think it looks pretty sweet. Probably looks better in the flesh. Not worth the potential $1.5m though.
