So this is their answer to the M3 Gts then?

Much less interesting than MB UK's DR520 editions shown at Goodwood this summer. They have more power and are actual customer cars you can buy (on the presumption they're not all sold).

Yeah presumably! Made me chuckle - after picking that colour, how could you NOT compare them. Subtlety not their strong suit.

Not the most enormous performance output and as for the colour, looks like another version of Ford's asbo oranges.

MB Australia orders a couple of cars in non standard colours and ticks all the option boxes, sticks them on a stand at a Motor Show, and somehow it's a story? Must be Monday.

Never seen one, nor likely to either, their so understated and often de-badged you'd have to be a right anorak to spot one!.

Have seen 3 today. Not in this colour though. One was the particularly funky C63 estate used by a rather yummy mummy to take the kids to school.
