The '65' engine in yet another Benz. Ho hum.

How about an A65 with the huge engine where the rear seats used to be, Clio V6 style? Now THAT would be inetersting.

No doubt it looks good. But i'd still prefer the TechArt Porsche Cayenne Turbo!! That thing is just absolutely stunning.

it doesnt have a V6, the 63 is a V8 i think..NA that too..

i hated the old ML, i hated the new one as well, but somehow its growing onto me, ofcourse i wouldnt pick it over a cayenne or a Q7 but now it just doesnt look bad, infact it has started looking good..

Looks pretty and civilised. But I like trucks more than SUVs. So I'll take an SRT-10 over Cayenne or ML.

Pretty!
Its unfair to compare the ML63 to tuners like Gemballa and Techart....If you compare a ML Brabus its justified but not a stock ML63.
