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! Didnt even ask if I could drive it. Damn it I love my life, I really do! :bigsmile:] Read the rest of this entry »

C320 CDI

I love this car I really do. I wasn’t much of a C-Class fan until the facelift made it much better. And now, with this engine under the hood, the cars kicks so much ass. Under the hood is the new 3.0 V6 CDI diesel engine with 224-horsepower and 510 Nm (376 lb/ft) of torque. Mated to the 7Gtronic, it can reach 62 mph in just Read the rest of this entry »

I had to drive a used 200_ C270 CDI T-Modell to Landshut. This C-Class was still a pre-facelift model so that meant cheaper interior materials and a not so sporty drive.

But the engine under the hood meant that it would be a pretty fun car to drive. Read the rest of this entry »
