Front is ugly on the new Mercedes I think. The back looks to be cut off..not a fan...

Interesting. Can't quite decide yet whether I like it or not, on some level it's intriguing but somehow you just know it's wrong... ;-)

AFAIK the 'original' shooting brake concept was indeed two-doors like this one, so kudos for that, but personally I prefer the approach of the new CLS or the Jag XF which are a bit closer to an estate.

On a philosophical point, when is a two-door shooting brake just a coupe hatchback? I can see why the marketing dept would rather call it the former, but aren't we talking about the same thing really?

I was expecting the worst - but that looks fab.

looks wrong to me. the whole point of an SL is to enjoy OPEN AIR motoring bbut with the luxury of a hard top. the folding roof arrangement is gone with that set up as it has nowhere to hide away
