Saw an Azera this morning too (like the Genesis, seems a lot of local Koreans choose these), and my first wrecked ATS, near a customized W212 E63 and a Testarossa with a lightweight front end:

Saw my first ATS this morning. Other than the swoop in the headlights, there is very little differentiation from it and the CTS. Still looks something that came from the same designer who had nothing but a ruler and a block of Butter for inspiration.
Also saw a loaded new Mazda 6 Touring this morning. What a gorgeous looking car.

Ouch on the Ferrari and the E63. At first I thought it was one of your nose-to-nose photo shoots with your E class and a Testarossa you acquired

I'll admit I like the Testarossa, but I'd actually prefer one in white - very 80s. Would match the new car, too ">

Yeah white Testarossa, very Miami Vice-ish.
We had a red TR at the dealer I worked at. Moving it around was a challenge: no power steering, no visibility, very wide and difficult to maneuver. I haven't driven one in the wild though, it's probably a fun experience with a flat 12 , rwd, and no traction control.

Anybody remember the "Married with Children" episode where Al Bundy leased a "Testica?"

I am sure it is a pig to drive, but would go nice with a pastel colored casual suit
Probably better off to find a custom C126 with cheese grater rear quarter trim.

I wonder how many of these widebody 80s Benzes survived? There has to be only a handful of these ever built, maybe in the low hundreds worldwide?

I think it ended up being a lemon. I also seem to remember him winning a ~88 Mustang convertible, which only appeared in one or two episodes.
