Hmmm - not quite sure if it's got enough bits on it to give it sufficient groundforce to do that??

It's a strange car - I was lucky enough to see a few at Brooklands, although the SLS is bigger than an SLK, it seems smaller than an SL. It's a very good looking car, but it doesn't seem to have the 'presence' an SLR has(did?).

I have to agree with woolly... I'm still not sold on the front end, but it definitely doesn't seem to have the presence of the SLRs. To me I see an SLR as a super car or an exotic, but for some reason I have a hard time classifying the SLS under that same title, maybe because of the classic design?

I have an overall favorable impression of the SLS styling, but somehow the grill looks like something that should be on a bigger car. Look at the front, okay. Look at the back half, okay. But the 2 together just don't seem right somehow.

But it will probably grow on me.

Unfortunately, all new cars will have higher front ends to comply with European pedestrian collision regs.

This is the one with Schumacer

The more I look at SLS, the more it reminds me of Z8.
