            almost impossible to answer because there are just too many, but the most special are of course the old gems like the 300 Gullwing, 600 Grand, 300 Adenaur, W126 S Class, 190..the list goes on and on..as for the worst ones, the first gen A and ML Class.(y)

              Its probable quicker for me to put down what I'm not fussed on more than what I love, the SL FL hasn't won me over much.

                    So easy:

                    Current - AMG GT R [How could it not be? BMW wishes they made a beast like this one.]
                    Past - Even easier (and f#ck you Marcus* for beating me to it) - W124 500E

                    * Still love you man! :love:

                      Mercedes is trying, but they still haven't matched the Sacco era of the W126, W125, R129 and the W201. That is when Mercedes was the envy of the entire industry and caused the creation of all new brands to in an attempt to duplicate some of that magic. The AMG GT, S and C Cabrio models, especially the AMG ones are special though. The G is as well so a lot of the magic is there. CLA/GLC/A don't belong though, but I get why they need to exist.

                          Bring on the dislikes, but I find it quite easily one of the worst looking Mercedes from the past 20 years. The front and back look like they belong on different cars, the side profile is typical Mercedes with it's loooooooonnnnggggg bonnet and vanity panel, but lacks the cohesive design of say, the SLS, to pull it off, so it just looks comical. I hate all the styling details - especially the headlamps. I'm sure it's a very capable car, but if I owned one, I'd probably still look at the SLS more lustfully, even if it isn't quite the performer the AMG GT is.


                          I always thought this was a pretty simple and elegant design, less aggressive, but also less convoluted than the current one....

                            BMW wishes? LOL please my man. BMW does what they wish.
                            Or are you just provoking here?

                            And the AMG GT is ugly.

                            Anyways....my vote is for the G class obviously. Any G class; 6x6, 4x4 r regular.

                              I love BMWs so there's no provocation here.

                              I think the AMG GT R is a belter - more for its mechanical attributes than its looks (which I find to be pretty appealing) and the interior is fantastic too. It's crazy fast, has an insanely good engine and a proper dual clutcher. What part of that make-up wouldn't appeal to me? There's a lotta car there... As for BMW - they don't make anything close to what the GT R is - it's just a figure of speech but you chose not get that.

                              On a personal note, it appears to me that Mercedes Benz are doing some pretty cool stuff - they've got their mojo back for sure.

                                This thread has nothing to do with BMW yet you feel like you had to bring them up in a negative way?
                                Whatever man.

                                Ah, but of course. I chose not to get it, and it was just a figure of speech. Stupid me!
                                And BMW has the M4 GTS, which is pretty similar to an AMG GT I'd say.

                                Oh, and I still love you too Martin! The father of this forum! Don't hold a grudge please.

                                You're making a mountain out of a molehill. It's just a figure of speech as I said. It's not to disparage BMW but to give emphasis on the kind of achievement the AMG GT R is for a company like Mercedes Benz. Just like an R8 is to Audi and so - obviously - I couldn't use Audi in my contentious little comment.

                                The M4 GTS is nothing like the purpose-engineered-from-scratch GT R. And, that's what a lot of us BMW fans lament - the lack of a true balls-to-the-wall halo car aka vanity project. We don't have to care about the business case - all we have to care about is that Audi does one, Mercedes Benz does one but BMW's i8 (as fabulous and relevant as it is) isn't in the same balls-to-the-wall league.

                                That's all I'm saying.

                                  In what way are they similar Klier? Do not want to derail this thread but let me just paste this here. Clarkson said...

                                  Now, at this point, I would normally use the word 'however' and start talking about the car's good points. However, I can't because I'm struggling to find any. The engine for instance has water-injection which sounds cool but it means that every third time you fill the car with fuel, you have to fill the water tank in the boot. I don't know but I'm not sure this is very high-tech."

                                  "And then there is the steering, which in comfort mode is horrid, and in sport setting is even more horrid."

                                  "This is not a car that responds well to my rather brutal driving style. The problem is it doesn't respond well to delicacy either."

                                  "This competition here between these two cars is like a boxing match between an actual boxer and someone who thinks they're a boxer because they're wearing satin shorts."

                                  "How did BMW get this thing so wrong?... It's twitchy, it's unpredictable. And in the rain it's somewhere between spiteful and undriveable."

                                  Clarkson is an idiot, the Grand Tour is terrible and there's far better sources that have critiqued the GTS. Harris for instance.
