Why Is The Mercedes SL Getting So Ugly?

You know how some car designs grow on you? Whatever the opposite of that is, the current Mercedes SL.

I'm not sure if other cars in the Mercedes stable (like the very clean AMG GT) have made the SL look ugly by contrast, or if there's something about the SL's shape that's just wrong. Maybe it was masked in the thrilling newness of the car back in 2012.


Even with the best color and the best lighting it's just... erf.

Why, why is it so hideous now, in 2014?
