Rummy and Co. soon to ride in CLS 63's according to "top gear"!

We love the CLS, but this AMG effort is patently ridiculous. It costs £72,995, almost £30,000 more than a boggo petrol or diesel, and all that power does little in the real world for what is still essentially just an executive cruiser. In hell, however, the minicabs are probably all CLS 63 AMGs, waiting kerbside for rumsfeld and his cronies.

It's a given they'll be in hell soon, but I figured they would be riding rusty bikes with no seats on the seat posts...

Thumbs up

Hamster is recovering. Apparently they have a new season in the works from what I have heard. The three hosts, Richard Hammond, James May, and Jeremy Clarkson are an unbeatable trio. I quite like their british humor and I think that they play off one another like few combos of tv history can... well atleast in automotive tv history.
Many of the best episodes are on youtube.com If you aren't familiar with top gear... get over to youtube and start watching... it is highly addictive.

CLS is ugly and too trendy, perfect for Rummy. 63 has less torque than the supercharged one before it. It is a step down from the 55. 7 spd auto is good though.

CLS reminds me of the new redesigned Chevrolet Caprice Classic.
