Part of me will forever want a 355 because of that. One of the best sounding Ferrari's ever to this day.

The cls63 and Tesla have almost identical performance figures (acceleration, braking, skidpad) so they are a pretty close match. Both the S and CLS are nice but don't have the Tesla's wow factor. I should note that I haven't driven the s-class or a cls63 so I am not presenting this as a particularly credible opinion. I would also through the panamera into that group. I'm sure it's a nice car, but wouldn't touch it. What's interesting about Tesla is that they're selling cars to guys who own M5s and Porsches, but they're also selling these things to people who've never had anything nicer than a Prius.

Finally saw a Model S in the wild today, my first thought was mehh..., a minute later a 500 Abarth rolled by and I was like icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif


The sound of an MB V8 is reason enough to get one.

This has "wow" factor?



I can't think of a more underwhelming looking vehicle. If it didn't have a Tesla badge on it, I bet most people would mistake it for a Buick.

And I definitely don't think anyone is cross-shopping an AMG with an electric car.

If nothing else, it has the best integrated c-pillar I've ever seen.

if you don't think that's a great looking car it's time for an eye exam

FWIW, the soundtrack is absolutely glorious.

Model s is good looking car, but it's missing some wow factor in stock setup, like a non AMG S Class.

This look pretty good to me. I have a mercedes and like the way they look generally, but think the Tesla is better. I don't like the nose cone on the Tesla and hope they improve it for the model x, but otherwise think it's a nicely resolved shape. I think MB kind of butchered the current generation CLS by chopping up the clean lines of the first generation.

x2.

 

Better looking sedan than the CLS63 AMG.

But to be fair, a banana with wheels looks better than the CLS, too

Right. Because every Tesla is slammed on HRE's.

And I never said it's an ugly car. It's just an underwhelming, inoffensive design that does absolutely nothing for me. YMMV.
post #11744 of 15387
wtf you guys are smoking crack if you think the model a looks better than a cls63.

EWWW.

Not that the model s is an ugly car or anything, but c'mon!

To be fair someone did post a CLS63 dropped on different wheels with CF bits. 

 

The CLS63 does nothing for me like the Tesla for you. The pre-2013 W212 E63 AMG was the nicest looking in the lineup. Not a Merc fan both BMW M and Audi are better cars to me.
