Today was one of those days where I just love my life. I came up to the Benz dealership this morning and the guy I am working under this week tells me that he has a special treat for me. Outside is a used 2003 Mercedes-Benz CL600, yep the one with the 500-horsepower, 800 Nm (590 lb/ft) of torque twin-turbo V12 engine. And guess who could have some serious fun behind the wheel of that baby? ME! :praise:] I didnt have to drive it anywhere, the dealership just allowed me to go take it out and have some fun!

Holy sh*t… *takes a deep breath*…holy sh*t…*let’s that sink in thoughtfully*… let me begin by saying that this car is absolutely insane!

For a diesel, this thing was brutal: even more so than the already fast E320 CDI! (more…)
Nervous, me? Ooh no!, Ok maybe a little… AARGHH! Who am I kidding !
