What's outside today 43 - Mercedes R280 CDI

Actually, this has just gone back, but I forgot to take the usual shots of it outside my house. I have to admit, my previously negative feelings towards this rather oddball car have mellowed a bit, but I still have difficulty seeing who would actually buy one.

A lot of good kit under the rather unusual styling - in particular the V6 diesel engine and the Mercedes seven-speed automatic transmission.

The answer to a question no-one asked. Mercedes now admit this was a niche too far and a mistake they won't be repeating. Even Renault had the courage to pull the Avantime, but Merc are too pig-headed to do it. Just an awful car.
