Want a 4-door Mercedes-Benz SLS? Neither Do We.

In an odd bit of marketing, or classic Germanic misdirection to confound their competitors, Mercedes filed a patent application for a four-door version of their enigmatic SLS AMG Gullwing revival. What's the point? Maybe to compete with the ever-increasing bevy of cars featuring true usefulness like the Ferrari FF and all those bustle-back BMW coupes that never seem to do very well in The States.
What do you think? We'd rather have two cars to fulfill the perceived need this car provides, maybe the "standard" SLS and an AMG E-class Wagon, but who knows, in the canyons of Beverly Hills maybe this is what it takes these days to avoid the embarrassment kids elsewhere feel being dropped off at school in a tattered Dodge pickup or a lowly Saturn wagon.
