Something I wonder is how certain ideas go from the drawing board to actually make it into production. Today’s car is one of those ideas. This is a 2016 SL550 Mille Miglia 417 edition. It was thought up to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the 1955 Mille Miglia that the W198 300SL competed in. The “417” comes from the original race number of 417 – itself derived from John Fitch’s 4:17 a.m. starting position in the legendary Italian race. In my view, that’s a little random to attach to the name of a car, but I guess I get where they are coming from. What I don’t get is everything else about the SL ‘Special Edition’.

Mercedes-Benz has done special editions before with the SL so it shouldn’t be a huge surprise that they’d go to that well again. But that doesn’t mean you go the well full of raw sewage. It’s as if Mercedes tried to make this car as offensive and unattractive as possible, and I see no links to the legendary 300SL which this is supposedly an homage to.…
