A top-class model that is superior to its predecessor in all respects and, thanks to improved safety features and supreme ride comfort, sets new standards in the luxury car segment. With a sure touch, Carlsson, the renowned tuning company from Merzig in Southwest Germany, has discreetly customised the new S Class and given it a convincing power boost. Now, the CK 50 based on the S 500 can be seen for the first time at the Motor Show in Essen.

If Minivans could fly! .The R-Class will seat six people in quite considerable comfort, in three rows of captain's style chairs. Mercedes wanted to make the point that the R-Class is a luxury crossover, not a van, and so it resisted any temptation to stick a third seat in the middle row. Consequently, all occupants have plenty of shoulder and elbow room, albeit the third row offers slightly narrower accommodation. And because the R-Class is actually a bit longer than the current long-wheelbase S-Class, legroom is outstanding in all three rows.

On the launch, three large 6'2" blokes sat behind each other with legroom to spare - the middle row of seats have generous travel fore and aft. Also, the middle row seats tilt forward and up to make access to the rear row easier. Which works very nicely indeed.

This is it folks, the Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR, the most expensive and outrageous Mercedes that you can buy. But exactly how outrageous is it really?

Here's the thing. Just a few weeks ago, I drove an SL55 AMG, aimed right at Ferrari and Porsche. It has the specs to strike fear in the hearts of other supercar owners, but my experience behind the wheel was rather disappointing. I found the car was too soft, the rear-end was not stable enough through tight corners, high speed jaunts were a floaty affair, and the traction control (when on) was a bit too intrusive.

All in all, it felt just like any other Mercedes, which is a bad thing if you want a sports car. So, if you can spend about £90,000 on a sports car, take my advice and buy yourself a Porsche 911 Turbo or a used Ferrari 360, and you’ll be much happier.

However, if you have about £250,000 to spend on a supercar, your choices are a lot tastier -- which is as it should be.

Walk into a Ferrari showroom, and you’d be tempted to go home in the SuperAmerica, the limited edition 575M with a unique rotating roof. Walk into a Lamborghini showroom, and you’ll be seduced by the awesome Murcielago Roadster, the one Nick Hall recently tested and fell in love with.
