Pic Of The Week: Wing'ed Wonder

Going 'retro' doesn't always work where four-wheeled exotica is concerned, but if you had any doubts about the desirability of the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Gullwing perhaps this image will help to dispel them.

Picture yourself hunkered down behind the wheel of this 'instant classic', gazing keenly over the sculpted bonnet as you glance the apex of your favourite corner... feeling the thickly rimmed wheel pulling back to the centre under your finger tips... the rear of the car squatting as you unleash the might of that 6.3-litre AMG motor...

You're a goddam hero, and you know it!

    What I find interesting is the "Retro" trend.

    First Motorcycle manufactures did it a few years ago and now sell more retro bikes than sports bikes.

    Then Euro box makers did it with the Mini, Fiat 500 etc.

    Then the good ole boys did it with the Stang, Challenger and Camero.

    Now this high end version that is the first Merc I actually like the look of.

    So what is next?

    Do they do a manual box option since they've gone retro with the looks? smile
