Even so, it was no driver's car - a situation that Mercedes engineers have remedied.

Both come as standard with 6-speed manual gearbox, with a five- and seven-speed auto optional respectively. Otherwise, your best bet would be a less powerful family hatch, supermini or, if you have to have a roadster, a Ford Streetka. Steering is pleasingly light at low speeds and, in manual specification, the clutch is easy to modulate when shunting backwards and forwards.

Richard Simons was incredibly helpful and what surprised me most was when he called me in the ensuing weeks to follow up on our purchase and check that everything was okay.
In fact, the change is so dramatic that critics are often tempted to compare the car favourably to Porsche's Boxster. This is, or course, remedied when the roof is retracted. Enthusiasts can rejoice in the knowledge that this car performs as well as it looks - and it looks stunning.
