    According to the german pricelist they have composite brakes, what ever that means?

    The F12's aero package is really impressive. That is true trickle-down technology from F1. This car is what supercars should be about today: fuel-efficiency and performance via really novel thinking.

    FWIW, the F10 M5 will have carbon-ceramic brakes as an option.

    Saw they spoke about it on TG last night or I saw some of it, as my eyes keep wandering.

    How about a 800hp (w/ 1,047lb-ft of torque) C-class?

    I could do w/o the fender detail, it looks out of place, and the huge Brabus "B" in the grill but damn they fitted it with a V12.

    Isn't it "just" an updated Brabus Bullit coupe?

    There should be a new Rocket on the way, which should be interesting to say the least.

    Speaking of Brabus I'm pretty sure I saw a GL 63 the other day.

    that thing would go down the street sideways, retarded. Hate the back end of the C-class coupe too, looks like a $20K Civic/compact segment car.

    the only thing MB has ever made that is weaker looking than the new C class coupe is the old C class coupe/hatchback.

    I don't think the C-Class coupe is so bad but damn I saw the CG3 in person and that thing makes the regular C-Class look like a little girls car. I'll see if I can dig up a pic from the Autoshow last year.

    The A, B and CLC are far worse looking than the C and R.

    I wouldn't mind having a R63 big boot, 5 seats and a 6.2 V8.

    Thats a money-no-object type purchase. What you'd get because the F12 is too small, the bus is too slow the Limo too flashy and the helicopter is too noisy for your 4 children who are late for school 100 miles away.
