@Agent4Ferrari : Dude are you a poet? I mean, the kind of wizardry you have used have brought about a visionary expulsion in me. It seems that I have actually swapped places with you in these road rambling, mind boggling and tearfully fast cars' cockpits. What a writeup...
Seems like a hit back to ground zero reality when you spoke about the brakes bringing you back to a stanstill from 350+Kmph. Kudos!

You're a very expressive individual I must say! You've managed to make everyone visualize and feel the emotion and sensation that you experienced! Using the choicest words and apt descriptions, you've brought it to life! Fantastic!

Someday, I wish I experience it! You're very brave. And you're lucky!

Thank you. The G forces are so gut wrenching and neck cracking that only a person who's been hit in the chest by a .45 magnum at point blank range and lived to tell the tale could probably have experienced something similar. The engine's sound vibrated massaged and rocked my internal organs just like one would stand in front of stadium class JBL unit with eurotrance or techno churning out at full blast! Could feel the resonance energy tingle on my hair. Imsure if some beans were left loose ont he dashboard they would be dancing away literally. Its machines like these that make you believe that things shown in movies like Hot Shots, like the facial expression of the chicken when shot out of a bow or the roasting of bacon behind the jet are a real life possibility and part of convenient lifestyle. Cant help it, the experience was such that it evoked such description. The only second comparison would be a lunch off an aircraft carrier aided by catapults. Or a Launch at Houston for a trip to the moon or the space station. Which of course would cost $20Mill as a space tourist compared to a few crores of repetitive action in your control There is just abundance of energy. Such that if a dead person be thrown into the co-driver seat he probably would be alive at the end of the journey.

excellent description of the drive! The Zenvo ST1 sounds like a Bugatti killer. Do you have any pictures?

My list:
1. SLK 500 - Driven in Italy
2. 2008 S 600L - Italy
3. 2006 CLS 55 AMG - Driven in Mumbai
4. Bentley Flying Spur 2008 - Driven in Mumbai
5. Porsche Cayenne - Italy

I dont live in Italy, just have to go there for work a few times. Drove the Range Rover Sport in Austria in crazy winter weather. Could'nt have picked a better set of wheels, even with no snow chains on.

@shadow - SLK 500? Pardon my ignorance, but does this model exist? I'm pretty sure I've never heard of one before.
