626 HP supercharged V8, 3.8 seconds from 0-60, top speed of 208 MPH.

Sounds pretty good right? I don't think so, and here's why:

3748 pound dry weight, 5 speed automatic transmission, and the fact that it looks like a retarded SL. This car is more than just "uncool"; this car is a bastardization of all that is good about supercars. It tries to be a racecar and luxury car all at once and it ends up being worth less than the sum of its parts. I'm whipping out the MJU card on this one, personally.

And it's Mercedes/McLaren. Definitely very cool, I think.

The complete lack of a respectable transmission makes this "catching PBB humping your sister" uncool.

I think this was meant as more of a luxury car with a big engine than a supercar, that's why it has an auto, I mean do you see bentley's with sticks? And although this badly desrve's a stick, I't can never be called a "Supercar"

The styling isn't as horrific as you all make it sound, and I believe this car is respectable enough to deserve an "uncool" the only thing keeping it out of MJ is the engine, and the fact that is was built by Mclaren and the only thing keeping it out of "cool" is the fact that this is the ultimate "I'm better than you," rich-bastard posuer car...

I love it. It could use less weight though, It'd be great to strip out the interior. Get rid of the heavy automatic transmission.

Honestly man have you no taste at all? Or do you just rate all cars by how much BHP they have? A dragster would be for you what the DB9 is for me....Vulgar and disgusting if you ask me, great car but I'll have a Carrera GT or a Zondaaaa thanks!

I saw clarkma changing votes in the DSCOTY. Why don't you change all the votes to Disgustingly Uncool.

Or you could just move it I mean how much difference is it going to make if it is moved. I used to hate it but its become better looking as time went on, especially in black. It's just the same as all recent mercedes, they dont make lightweight drivers cars, they make super fast luxury cars.
