i dont understand this : "I like your spedometer, heh heh. How much is a speeding ticket over in France?" (excuse me but i have some difficult to translate !)
you like speedopix ? this is the speedopix of my 560 SEL (but i m not in my maximal speed in this view , i can go to 6000 rpm and 275/280 km/h )

Nowdays I see very few 6.9's around, but back in the early 90's a friend had one (3speed auto) and it was MENTAL!!

One thing is for sure the 6.9 in the movie did not have a limited slip diff. 6.9's are great cars, but they are not very fast by modern day standards. A new S600 would run off and hide from a 6.9.
