Mercedes latest R-Class goes on sale in the UK next month and aims to prove that you can buy class after all
If you ever drew cartoon cars as a child, there ought to be something familiar about Mercedes' ridiculous new G55. Massive wheels, comedy panel gaps and ruler-straight bodywork are all part of a design that's very two-dimensional.
Is Mercedes guilty of a cover-up? It claims this is a new-generation SL, but even the designers can't deny that it's hard to spot the alterations.
While the Voyager - see separate story - is getting a major revamp, you'll have to look closer to spot the changes to the facelifted Mercedes SL.
Better, stronger and faster was the billing for television's Bionic Man back in the Seventies, but it has taken more than 30 years for science fiction to become science fact.
