The exterior of the R171 AMG just looks so much better. There's not one color that makes the new AMG look good IMO.

Maybe just need to see one in the flesh, but does not have the presence of a flagship model.

I'm with Jeff...a 25ft "run" hardly shows the car in a positive light. There are some great roads in the area, for example, on the south side of the Elbe River is the Altesland, nice two lane roads, some twists, great scenery.

Makes me miss the Alster though...BH?

Its the exterior look of the car i'm not impressed with. I'm not sure a nice twisty road in the mountains is gonna make me change my mind. It's still gonna look drab, IMO.

Hate the look of it, not too aggressive as the 171 AMG.

Well their latest inspiration is the silly looking SLS. And I don't see that changing for several years, sadly.

R171's were inspired and based on the McLaren SLR and they did a damn faithful job of it.

I love how the driver accelerates only to quickly brake behind another car.
