Note that the SLS in Car and Driver differs from the car shown in the first post in that the front end and grill is more upright. Im am told that there is a new ECU regulation or law requiring more upright fronts for pedestrian safety, though I don't understand the reasoning. (Were I a pedestrian struck by a car, I'd rather be slid up on the hood rather than hit square and then thrown under the wheels!) Nonetheless, MB can be observed to be incorporating the more upright front in every new model they introduce. For this reason, I don't think the car in that picture will see the light of day with that sloping front end.
