Down On The Street

Walking Juno a few weeks ago, I spotted this car just around the corner from the sharp Volvo P1800ES that was previously profiled.
From the front, no big deal, just a ten-plus year-old Mercedes SL-class roadster. But check it out in profile.
Clean, elegant and simple. I approve. Especially when outfitted with these AMG 5-spoke wheels and propelled by a sensationally-smooth V12 engine.
Quite the boulevard cruiser. And while it may not have as much character as the R-107 body style that preceded it (one of the ten cars I'll own before I'm dead), I still wouldn't kick it out of the garage...
...provided someone else is picking up the tab for repair and maintenance.
