God please save me, I seem to be loosing my vision, I seem to be day dreaming. Are these beauties also paying a visit to my residence

We seem to be having a string of shows. Fiat started with Ferrari’s, then Audi, Renault, Porsche & now Merc (Hope I didn’t miss any)

Finally people have started empowering the poser Merc. viz. the SLK.
However, I don't understand the point in buying an E 65 AMG. The understated look part is OK, but the W211 E-class as of today is like an end of season sale product since it's successor is on it's way and secondly makes me feel like someone's empowered a sophisticated cab.

@brabus_E_v12 : The amg v12 bi turbo is one hell of an engine. I drove my uncles cl65 amg ( I think they share the same v12 bi turbo) and it has so much torque, it is unbelievable. A stage 2 kleemann chip woul pump the torque to close to 1000nm if i am not mistaken. (now that is close to small truck and bus territory).
Oh and the noise the car makes is insane espicially when you start it up, it sounds like a hand grenade just exploded.

Good thing though, these cars depreciate like stink..

he he we pushed it to 190mph(~300kph) before we backed out (damn turn, was hoping we could make it to 200). Surprisingly mercedes released it with a 5speed auto instead of the 7 speed auto.

Nice all AMG's, now that's what I am talking about. I have driven a C63 amg and its insane. Its like a monster under a c class body just laughing to itself, knowing it can roast almost any car on the street.

That's because the torque of the 65 engine would shred the 7 speed box. It is not an option for any of the 65 AMG cars I believe. You can get it only on the 55s and below.
