Had a Mercedes experience today that made me giddy

So, I work in retail management for a large southern grocery retailer. One of my regular customers owns a variety of excellent cars. One of the last times he came by, I got to sit in the back of his Maybach 67S and play around for a little while. Today, he brings his 2013 SL65 AMG Black Series to get groceries. He asked me if I wanted to drive it, and there was no way I could say no! While I was nervous at first (I have never driven a car of this caliber) after 30 seconds behind the wheel and getting a feel for how it lot-drives, we pulled out onto the road. Words can't express the way this car moves. I only got to do a couple of half-mile runs and I don't think it had full traction at any speed when I went WOT. Snapped a couple pics when I pulled back into the parking lot:







He said he is going to bring by his new CTS-V wagon after he finishes getting the supercharger ported, polished and car tuned and will let me drive that. Just wanted to share my quick story! This absolutely made my day.
