    Well one of the fringe benefits of working for a Mercedes Dealership is we get all these cool cars to beat on. We got a SL65 6.0L V-12 Biturbo today and had to take it to lunch (predelivery inspection). Let me tell you I've never driven anything that would do a rolling burnout at 65mph until today :banana: . This car kicks A$$, 608rwhp and 748 ft/lbs of torque. I think the torque number is understated. The turbos put out 2.5bar at 2k rpm. 0-100 in about 10sec or less.
    I've never been scared of a car until now. We got it off the truck from the dock - the window sticker said "welcome to the top of the food chain".

    Just thought I'd post - I'll have some pictures when I get home to upload the camera.

    I've never even heard of it. Let's see a pic.
    I think I am becoming more and more domestic the older I get. I think Dodge should grab all the German technology then send them back to their motherland.
