  • Support Not only the best photo we have, I think their marketing department would be hard-pressed to do better. Very nice. Daniel Case (talk) 02:52, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Support What a cool picture. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 09:48, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Support. My inclination is to oppose car photos taken at motor shows, but this is very well done without the attendant distractions we so often see; some may think the background overly imposing for an encyclopaedia, but I don't think it's too dominant, especially at full-res. There are some obvious blown highlights on the car from reflections of bright lights, almost unavoidable in these situations, and they're pretty well controlled. A slightly distracting reflection on the windshield, and was tossing up a 'weak support' due mainly to what looks like some minor artifacting in the blacks of the main Mercedes logo in the grille, but overall I'm pretty sold on it. --jjron (talk) 09:27, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Support The image has an odd crop but the quality of this image can easily make one overlook that slight issue.--Amadscientist (talk) 00:00, 3 March 2013 (UTC)
