Went to look at a G8 today, found out it was a 6 cyl, boo. Just went out and about looking at cars for a time waster. Ended up at the BMW dealership. They had a 03 Mercedes SL 55 AMG. Took it for a test drive, roasted the tires off of it at the first tip in, hmmm. Didn't do any research on it. GF ended up buying it!!! What a ride, OMG! Car was $135K new. 469HP, 516 ft lb of torque! O-60 in 4.6. Got it for $40K out the door with full warranty. Car is sick. Car and driver said it was a supercar with luxury. I have to agree. Not a Poncho, but wanted to share, we are tickled. Bad ass ride.:cheers

Holy Crappola! That thing is super sick dude!

Have to admit your GF has some good taste. Definetly a gorgeous ride, love the rims, color, topless....drool. :D

Nothing like a lil blower to top off an already healthy V8. I'd just hate to be the original owner and take that $100,000 hit on the trade in :eek:.

Thanks. See ya on the next power tour with it, lol.. We can ride. She wanted a convertible with a hard top, saw this thing and said F it, lol.. Dealer said the rims were $7500 aftermarket.. God help us if we hit a pot hole and mess one up, 20's in the back. It's got magnetic ride, and you can raise it 2" up with a push of a button. I still don't know what all the buttons are for, lol.. We're still going to hang out here. I know how the Vette guys are, and I don't hang with them, can only imagine the Mercedes D bags, lol.. Motor is signed by the builder. Has upgraded rods, pistons and oiling, 6500 rpm redline. 2nd pic is the belt to hook up the 5 point race harness. Oh, did I mention the electric rollbar?? Makes my Vette look plain jane. Got the car for the same money as an 05 LS-1 Vette that we were looking at, think this is better..
