Once I saw the first picture, I could tell you the order of the day....
First Place Porsche Boxter S
Second Place Chevrolet Corvette
Third Place MB SLK 350
Fourth Place Chrysler Crossfire SRT.

*Sigh*...... so very predictable.

I actually was quite enthusiastic about the review. The third place finish is a bit deceiving. The Slk 350 got beat by a huge V-8 and the quintessential sports car, Porsche. Just to be in the comparo is a compliment I think. Overall, they had great things to say about the car. I don't think the R170 would be in such good company.

I agree with you that they had many good things to say, however, thei final ratings are unchanged.
These chaps rate like they are on the track every day of their lives.
A track-friendly suspension is probably not something you want to live with day after day but this is a topic that has been beaten to death so I'll let sleeping dogs lie.

By the way, I saw the new W221 S class yesterday on US-287... looked quite nice even in disguise.

Cheers!
