Somebody put an AMG GT bumper on his R171. Who knew it fit?
Not a chance. The R171 F1-style nose is still there, with it's characteristic downward sweep to the bumper. The reason the R172 has the nose it does, and this holds true for any successor car as well, is EU pedestrian safety regulations. All cars had to get stubbier, higher noses to keep poleaxed pedestrians from sliding up the hood and smashing through the windshield. With higher noses, they'll be shunted off to the side. As if that's better...Hi All
Could we been looking at a spy picture of the R173 ??
I'd say in the eye of the owner.Beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder. Photoshopped or not, aside from the front license plate, I think it looks great!
