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.

  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4

    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron

    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
