It just looks like something that should be strafed by a squadron of P47's...

I'm glad M-B has the guts to build such a vehicle. This should be an inspiration to other manufacturers to think outside the box and build something different
Tad Dunville
It's awesome because it's what a true MB should be. A fanatically well-engineered car that the marketing pukes don't bother with. Contrast that with the CLA, a car designed by and for mouth breathers. What happened to the real MB?

I'm on my second Range Rover and love it but am strangely attracted to it as well. I'd love it even more if they beefed up the wheels and did a better job harkening back to it's roots as a tougher military vehicle. Too many Suburban soccer moms drive it.
