Appears to have a soft top this time around.

I really don't know where they'll go with this car. The GT sure seems like it took its market. Rumor is that it will be a 2+2, which certainly seems stupid given the SL history. Outside of this awful thing, it's always been a two seater.

But it is good to see stupid folding hardtops going away on front engine cars.

Probably going to replace the S-Class convertible's place in the lineup since the GT stole its thunder.

Probably not much room for comfortable back seats.

Test mule for SL vs the S class coupe.

Oh, comfortable? Never. Even the S Class has comically upright seatbacks and narrow space. I can't imagine putting adults back there.
