Oh my word!

This is the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, modern-day replacement for the unforgettable gullwing 300SL from the 50s. It can be hard to reinvent a classic – the MINI is nice, for example, but so not a Mini – but these photos certainly look like a success to me. I can’t wait to see a video of this thing.

Coming to Frankfurt next week apparently, as is a reinvention of the venerable Citroen 2CV. I can’t see them getting that right! Click through for more photos.
