Do any of you think that the XLR will make it. Just wondering because the Benz is quite a nice car to drive. Fast and a beautifully smooth ride. Since the XLR is supposed to compete in that luxury class, how do you guys feel the XLR will do? As for my opinion, I would much rather go with the Benz since its been around much longer than the XLR and the price range is about the same. Therefore, the only way I see people driving the XLR over the Benz is that 1. Its American and 2. Because people will want to be the first to own one. After looking at the pictures for a while I don't think is a very good looking car. I guess I have to see it in person.
