Having had 5 new SL500s I feel qualified to say I always loved the shape of the SLs. But this latest 2017 one looks very Japanese or USA styling taste. Very mundane if not actually ugly. 2017/18 looks just as bad in the flesh. Those gaping holed air ducts .... 1st SL in 40 years I didn't go ohhh lovely. Looks like one of those Chavvy cheapo body kits. 2015 probably the meanest. Yes I would buy one. 2013 very elegant Well what do you think?
