Blurred Lines

The history associated with the Silver Arrows of days past, most notably those with the SL moniker, is undeniable. These cars came on the scene in 1954 and set the world ablaze. My opinion is that this is the car that singlehandedly set the bar for what a true GT car is all about. The classic ’54 Gullwing is what every GT hopes to achieve when it’s launched. Sultry good looks, built for speed, with enough performance and comfort to suit the gentleman driver during his commute, and the racer on the weekend. It’s a theme well represented in the modern era by a variety of manufacturers. From Aston to Jaguar, Audi to Infiniti – all offer their interpretation of the GT coupe.

Often times, a beautiful street car does not translate into a beautiful race car. With the SLS, I think Mercedes has done what often is elusive: created a race car that is more beautiful than it’s road going sibling. It’s simply stunning. Well proportioned, sounds the business, and goes like stink. A true world class GT race car.
