    I love how MB managed to blend the somewhat retro front end with the modern back and ‘concept car’ gullwing doors. And it seems to flow & make sense. My only complaint is that the side/rear looks a bit Mazda RX-7. Actually, very RX-7.

    this is a beautiful car and not only does it not look like a rx-7 the concept car gullwing doors are actually very retro introduced by Mercedes in 1954 on the 300sl coupe 56 years ago.
