Hypercars should have bold, enticing names that echo confidently after you’ve vocalized them, like Ferrari, or Lamborghini. Even Pagani and Bugatti have a stern sound to it. A brand name, after all, is what evokes the emotions and imagery of the said manufacturers. The aforementioned names strike you as bold and adventurous because the cars they make directly align with those thoughts.

Get ready to short Pfizer stocks, because the brand new 2013 Mercedes Benz SL550 will be putting Viagra out of business. The 2013 Mercedes Benz SL550 continues a tradition that was started 60 years ago. A tradition that is synonymous with sport, style, and comfort.
