So how many of those Ultmate Driving Machines did you end up pushing off the road?

By they way, that was the sound I could hear from inside the 500E on I75.

nice Jonathan..... so you have the M119 AMG 6.0 motor.....??

Horsepower: enough power to go from point A to point B
Torque: enough to get the car moving

0-60 mph: not in a rush
0-1/4 mile: about 5 minutes @ 2mph because no need to showoff

My favorite topic, What kind of watch do you guys wear with your Benz...??

Jono,
Don't tell me you yanked the engine out of the "Torquemonster" just to clean it and take a picture. Probably tore it down and completely rebuilt it like the white coupe's engine. ;-) But seriously, that is a nice pic of the twincam 6.0. Did you get the 3pc. AMGs on yet?

Power is rated @ 375/385 depending on which brochure you pick up...AMG would have been happy to sell you one of these for the meager sum of 60,000 USD.

I'll need to look up what the torque was rated at.

I wish I had the time to yank and go through this engine.. Unfort. I would need a lot of time as So much of it is going to be custom work @ this point.

Still no 3 piece wheels..still looking for a 10' lip...

For the moment i'll still running around on these Aero I's w/ track rubber..
