Hey pal, just check this out, what i read on Top Gear

Proof that the SL55 is a gay car
[March 2004]

In the last series of Top Gear, there was a lot of evidence obtained suggesting that the SL55 AMG was a gay car. Well, to back up this point, I've come up with some evidence myself.

Mercedes is a German car right? Well, if you say "AMG" in German, it will sound like you're saying "I AM GAY". It is pronounced as, "aa em gay"...

My guess is this has been concoted by some 360 fanatic for this car can completely ruin the case of the Ferrari car. Anyways this is supposed to be taken light-heartedly as a joke This can also be made by some BMW fanboy who knows when its been beated

Well if its the name that makes it a gay car, then even one of my favourite car - The Lamborghini Gallardo, sounds pretty Gayish. Well we know its pronounced (Gay-Yaar-Do), Which in hindi means??
Just trying to make a point thats it. (i know its Ga-Yar-Do).

I doubt its the Ferrari fans or Beamer Screamer's job, I think its the "Anti Jeremy-Clarkson" ppl who've done it (specially coz it being on TopGear). The Fact is He owns one, and there are a huge amount of people *(including myself)* who dont really like Jeremy as much. Can be Ferrari fans too, he said he sold a 355 to buy an SL Five-Five AMG..
Who knows, but I can tell, its utter rubbish. The Huge chunk-o-Mettle that this car is, makes it rather manly.

lets see...496 bhp, v8 and a supercharger. you would need somebody with rather big ba**s and a big whatsit to actually tame a beast as such. and for all the women it would attract with the roof up or down, id say hardly...

You said it ported head. Anyways I guess this is meant to be just one of those jokes..

In that case why catch only the SL55 even the other AMGs can be called gays why just the SL55

This has got to be some anti Merc nerd
