Nice quality on the chop, but I think it's too MX-5 inspired. Consistent with the GT and the other recent coupes like the S Class (including the GLE), the rear license plate housing should be dropped to the bumper and horizontal taillights should be connected, possible with the silver bar:

I placed the numberplate on the boot to differentiate it from the MX-5, visually lower the boot's height and because that's how every generation of the SLK has been up to now.

As always, thanks for the comments!

Looks good, I agree, the rear light should be more like the AMG GT, but overall I like the idea.
