There’s a reason why Bobby Ewing drove an R107 Mercedes SL. It’s because it was the best of the best all the way from 1972 to 1989, thanks to a group of brilliant engineers working hard to come up with elegant solutions for difficult problems set by American politics.
The Mercedes-Benz SLC nameplate, originally on a hardtop coupe from the ‘80s, is returning to the lineup in 2017—killing off the SLK-Class with its introduction. It’s not to be mistaken with the company’s other recent reveal of the SL coupe and roadster, even though they could be totally mistaken.
Mercedes just unveiled their facelifted SL under the following brief: THE NEW MERCEDES-BENZ SL: THE LEGEND - NOW EVEN MORE DYNAMIC. HOW IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE?

Is there anything that the whacky tuners at BRABUS won't put a V12 into? Our favorite has to be the BRABUS Bullit Black Arrow which is V12 + C-Class + matte black paint.
