Not in the night on some nice straight roads......Ah. Paradise.

Nice car V10. Well done. Looks like Spiderman will have a replacement in his garage.

Drive safe. This car is a rocket.

@abhinav: Yes this car is restricted to 255 kmph.

I dont understand the reason why even the AMG models have the 255 kmph limit.

I know in India, you cant go upto that speed unless you take to an airfield like ecksreturns too for his LP.


I understand the normal mercs have this for safety purposes(assuming).
But why on the AMG.

It's atleast an '05/06 or so imho. Can't possibly be newer. Likely to be older. Once again, nice car. Get the windows tinted and it'll give the red some justice.

Your probably right, took a good look at the lights once again, it probably isn't an 08 though it interests me to know the exact year

Never realised how jacked-up the Cayenne is. Those alloys look way too small, even though they're not! :o
