Hi guys, could anyone tell me what car this is? I spotted it in Central London a few days back and loved the look of it but have no idea what it's called.
After looking on the Mercedes Benz website, the closest thing I found was a CLA.
But if I type CLA in on Google, they don't have the side grills like this one..

It's an SL. The high-end luxo' roadster 2-seat sportscar by Mercedes-Benz.

I wish that were a CLA. If I had that car it would get me about 5 money-grubbing gorgeous babes per night.

I'll be lucky if the CLA gets me 1 babe and bag of chips, per night.

... lolz @ comments above! :D

SL's tend to just blend-in too much around here, being a warm(er) year-round climate there's tons of convertibles/coupes of all makes/models. For those in-the-know, they'll be able to discern the SL (and the AMG versions), but for the most part these uber-comfy roadsters just don't get appreciated enough here'bouts.

The CLA will actually have some novelty here, at first. I imagine within a few years, it'll be somewhat recognizable, though I'm not too sure if too common. The purists would want a RWD platform, the family-types would want more interior/rear room, the poseurs would want a name (namely, Bimmer), etc. It's a bit of a lifestyle, personal choice type of car, seemingly. Which I don't mind at all! :D

^Well then the "purists" can have their Scion FR-S. God that car makes we want to puke every time I see one. I'd rather have an AWD but in reality don't really need it in SoCal.

Ha, well put! :D

A few friends I've mentioned the CLA to, from around the ways, each said the same thing initially: oh, it's FWD right!?![/] :eek:

The only time I want RWD is on a full-size luxo' sedan, a sporty, mid-size premium GT coupe and/or a proper sports-car. Otherwise, FWD all the way!!! :p
