I've seen them too. But not on a stock engine.

Aww, I'm sorry. But can you do me one small favour? When the Busa comes, send the Bandit over, will ya?

BTW, can anyone explain how the rear diff is cooled?

It'll probably rip the clutch apart.
that's why i love the 55s. they dont need too much motivation to start smoking (too much peer pressure hehe)

Didn't want to open another thread.
Check out this bad boy, the 2008 CL65 AMG. This beast of a machine has a twin turbo 6.0L V12 with 612 horses and 738 lb ft of torque. And those 738 ft lbs are electronically limited!! Imagine how much it'll be if it wasn't limited? Christ!!

And you just don't take a V12 and twin turbo it. Manufacturers make V12 so that they can take advantage of the extra pistons and have naturally aspirated power. That's why you don't see too many twin turbos after 8 cylinders. But if you do, the results are, let's say catastrophic.

The CL65 AMG probably has so much torque that it can drag a 50 storey building on the ground.
That's why they have 10" wide tires with 20" rims.

these new CL65s are mad machines and i love then. It took some time getting use to the new design, but when you see an AMG version all the doubts just disappear. I love it, but i dont know how much i would want one over a Bentley Conti GT, even though it would cream the BCGT in every performance aspect..

but i guess when you have the kind of money to throw on these machines, it wouldnt hurt to keep switching whenever you feel like..
