MRAdvent 13 Dec: the naughty list

Naughty and nice Mercedes-Benz

He’s making a list, he’s checking it twice. He’s gonna find out who’s naughty or nice. Santa Claus is coming to town. Which is good news for all the angelic children across the world.

As we catapult towards Christmas, faster than Clark W. Griswold on a freshly lubed sled, we turn our attentions to a simple but effective festive ad, courtesy of Mercedes-Benz USA. Kids, forget what your parents may have told you, it turns out Santa caters for the nice and the naughty.

Allow us to demonstrate:

Santa appears to take a rather simplistic view, with white cars disappearing into the night under the NICE banner and red cars heading under the NAUGHTY sign. Fair enough, but we’d have thought it should be AMG cars on the left and standard Mercedes-Benz on the right. After all, we all know Affalterbach is German for naughty.

Which got us thinking. If Santa asked us to select 10 naughty tearaways and 10 nice motors, how easy would it be? We started with a list of 20 and split them down the middle. We’re going to need a couple of mighty transporters for this little lot.

So what kind of car do you drive? Is it naughty or nice? Answers on the back of a postcard to the usual address. Post early to avoid the Christmas rush.

Has an unhealthy obsession with cars of the 80s and 90s. Doesn’t really do supercars. Not a huge fan of sports cars. But loves the undervalued and the underwhelming.

Is probably a bit strange.
