Hardly "Leaked" when they are

Hardly "Leaked" when they are all the official pictures owned by mercedes, more likely they have pushed them onto the media before its launch, to get a perspective of how it is greeted by the masses, and to be honest, its not pretty, but then since the Bobby Ewing version, they have not been very nice.

No amount of face lifting can

No amount of face lifting can fix this ugly dog. It's the only truly ugly SL in history and a disgrace. And the new S-Class cabriolet - an infinitely better looking car - will seal its fate. Let this dog die, and Merc better not mess up the next one.

I'd have one in a heartbeat; my R129 500 was a glorious car. It's unlikely the current model will ever be available for the kind of pocket money I paid for mine, unfortunately.

Oh I agree, the R129 was a great car. I just think the SL has moved a long way from that template.
