The new Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 Edition is here, well not really in Australia, but at least it now exists!

2007 Mercedes-Benz GL 320 CDI GL 500

Although Mercedes really likes to think of the GL class as SUVs, I have to put Mercedes in their place, come on guys, these things might have all the capabilities of an SUV, but they never even go on dusty roads let alone off-road!

Mercedes-Benz Australia released details of the new CLK class and they have instead decided to keep the 500 name with the new 5...
