These R231s would look 100 times better, they got rid of those Ghastly head and taillights, i think those are what ruin this car, big time.

I can see 0-60mph in 4.0s ... in america, they just need to be as fast as the european tests plus 1ft roll out, its entirely possible.

Mercedes puts it (0-100km/h) at 4,6.. so no i don't really expect it to crack it in 4,0 but 0-600mph might be 4,3 or so especially since Mercedes has a habit of being a little conservative.

I cant imagine a 3900 pound car with 430 bhp going 0-60 in 4 seconds flat. But who knows.. its seems these days evil wizards are designing cars and the impossible is now possible.
