proper classic car. Not that Alfa Romeo nonsense :P
You know how I feel about Mercs. Also, this is a mass-produced, factory-churned vehicle while the Alfa Romeo Disco Volante is coachbuilt so everything you see and touch have been lovingly hand-crafted by Touring Superleggera.
Comparing the Merc to the Disco Volante is like comparing a blow-up doll to a proper girl - they both get the job done but only one of them evokes real feelings and emotions.
Do you know what other cars carry the Touring logo? Aston Martin DB4, DB5 and DB6. Touring designed the lightweight superleggera body of the Aston Martin DB4 and the design (and performance) of the DB4 formed the basis for future AM classics. And do you know who else commissioned Touring to design many of their road cars? Enzo Ferrari.
