RE: E65 AMG
Just some more thoughts -- not that any of this matters, it's just thoughts, so no flaming is necessary, thanks.
Isn't the CL class built on the same platform as the E class? And if so, how come we can get a CL65 and not an E65?
I am beginning to beleive that this is much more about marketing and product positioning than engineering, but again, that's just my guess. Any manufacturer in their right mind is going to line up available products against what the market will bear, so perhaps the E65 just doesn't fit. Said another way, perpaps there is a significant number of buyers willing to pay for a CL65 at $180K but not an insignificant number of buyers willing to pay $180K for an E55.
I just read about the Brabus EV12 in "European Car" magazine. Very cool and fast and stealthy. But there's still just something about the production-model hot rod that would be cool.
I guess maybe the next generation S65 may be interesting...
