Today i had the R500 4-Matic out for a spin. If i wanted a minivan that could easy hold 6 grownups i would go for this one. My style is more of a sedan or perhaps a coupe but a minivan, not for me!
I have almost forgotten that i got to drive the CLS55 AMG some time ago (how COULD i forget that). So here are some images and a little teststory of this super nice car with a a sound that is breathtaking..
Oh yeah, I finally got to experience the joy of driving an SLK350! :sun:] This SLK had a nice light metallic blue color to it. Not my favorite color, but it looked ok on the car and I was happy the thing wasn’t black as it was a hot day. Great car, great car!

I was hoping for some time with the car but a change of plans meant that the car had to be in Landshut earlier than expected so I would only be allowed to drive the car for 30 minutes max. Also, Mr. Schultz said that no automotive journalists in the world have yet driven this car: except for me! I feel so damn lucky!
Testdriving conditions werent ideal sadly. The weather was rainy and wet and lighting conditions were poor (for a photo shoot). Great. Everytime I drive a fun car, the weather turns sour (and when I drive not so interesting cars, the weather is nice and sunny!). (more…)
2005-11-07 I’ve done it!
Now I have finally done it, I have driven the W221 new S-Class. I can easily sum it all up in a big AHH! They have done it again. Mercedes-Benz has once again built a car that will go to history as one of “the best cars in the world”. (more…)
