    :eek3: Is that the same car that barely beat the 03 Cobra? That's a shit load of power. :eek2:

    I can see a fat/bald 55-year-old guy using that car to quickly go to Starbucks for his $4.00 coffee. :o

    Seriously though. Sweet car.

    They have more than 470 I believe. Referring to the S600, CL600 and SL600.

    They also have some cars that are over 500 hp, all big ass sedans, but still.

    Its kinda crappy though because its not naturally aspirated and it still doesn't even manage 100hp/L. But thats Mercedes for you, big engines, supercharged, and fast in a straight line.

    Jeremy Clarkson owns a SL55 AMG though, thats a pretty good advertisement for them. But still, he likes the big tourqey, heavy cars.

    Who cares about HP/L?! 500 HP is a lot of power. Especially for a type of car driven by older/mature people.

    Yeah, but when you have more HP/L is makes the car's power to weight ratio much better. Thats why that car is so damn heavy, its got a huge ass fucking engine. Imagine if they made it with 80HP more, it would be so much faster, but Mercedes doesn't seem to put any effort into their engines.

    mercedes doesnt make sports cars.
    the best way to describe tehir cars is "Its a car that youll feel just as comfortable going 50mph in as you would 150"
