It took Mercedes benz exactly 46 years to copy a Volkswagen SP2…

Our Brazilian friends are all over the place when the new Mercedes-Benz was released…

Look how similar it looks to the SP2. SP2 was a pure VW Do Brasil Volkswagen design, that was not really accepted by VW Germany back in the day. Germany had made its own sports car, the 914…

Off course the striking lines of the SP2 are so much more beautiful that VW Germany didn’t allow the import of the SP2 into Europe… out of fear the 914 wouldn’t sell anymore.

Now Mercedes-Benz do it another way around and  rebuild the SP2 in Germany… smart move….but if VW will like that is another question…:)

Thanks to my friend Luiz for the picture.
