I can not say enough about this car and I have had some cars with some serious ponies. With the new wider tread (i bit louder in compartment) I thought it would be a no can do on the wheels winding up. I was wrong and still pulls the third gear spin. Power in just such a large range on these cars. I wanted to make a post for other people in these to share their experience in this car. WOW is all I can keep saying. In my times with the w126 it was always about freeway cruising exceeding the posted comfortably.
Today merging on to the freeway windows down I hear the spin up of a new merc on my side going for the pole spot. I was in about half throttle when I hit it and I know I had to shock him as he scrambled to get his throttle buried but it was to late. No question the beast in a dead heat would take me but I know his second of collecting what was happening lost him that spot and left him going, WHAT?
