Because Styling-Garage had so many customers at a certain point of time they just couldnt cope with the demand for exotic cars that came from the middle-east. They could have done two things.

Four years on from its launch, the successful Mercedes-Benz SL-Class has undergone a number of enhancements, the most significant being in the areas of technology, design and interior appointments. The engines, powertrain and chassis have been optimised to deliver a sportier response so that the unique Roadster now offers an even more enjoyable dynamic driving experience while perpetuating the “SL legend” which has existed for over 50 years. New V6 and V8 engines, as well as an uprated V12 powerplant, deliver assured driving pleasure. Second-generation Active Body Control and the more direct steering make for noticeably sportier handling without compromising the high level of comfort which is one of the hallmarks of the SL. The redesigned front section, new rear light units and new light-alloy wheels reflect the more dynamic character of the revised SL even when it is stationary. New interior appointments as well as painstaking attention to the details of the new materials and colour schemes give the interior an even more luxurious look and feel. Shift paddles on the steering wheel which form part of the optional 7G-TRONIC Sport package underline the dynamic character of the enhanced SL-Class. Read the rest of this entry »

STUTTGART, Germany — Mercedes-Benz probably didn’t have the geek set in mind when it designed its new flagship 2007 S-Class sedan. But when the luxury car hits U.S. streets in February, it’ll be packing a bundle of electronics that would make David Hasselhoff green with envy. Read the rest of this entry »

The grille is from a not so lucky Rolls Royce in the rallye. I have heard of rumours that no less than three of the participating SLRs have had alternator breakdowns and that service personnel from the factory was flewn to Thailand for repairs. I will get back in that matter as soon as i know more on that.
