So true. It may be awesome, but it's hideous. Hideously awesome. Awesomely hideous, even.

I'd rather have a hot Focus.
Ya that price tag has got to be at least $45000.

And I'm with you, I'd rather have an ST for probably half the price.

$45k? For a 350hp Benz? Hahaha you have got to be kidding.

I would not expect to see this for less than $55k

I would rather see the US get cars like the Citroen DS3-R, which is clearly part of the inspiration in the Merc's rear design.

We all know that the awesome incredible ST would destroy this car but you have to give MB some credit for trying.

Audi RS3 comes to mind, but whether or not it's cheaper is up to the projected msrp of the Merc.
