Do you get 99 octane fuel in India? I thought the best available was 97 octane.

BTW, you have got a awesome car And so many tyres

That is a sinister car. Imagine an unsuspecting friend getting in the driver's seat? He will not know what hit him!

You say no one steps out unsurprised. I say many would step out with sprained necks, maybe more. At least I hope you insist on them wearing seat belts.

Default e55vs 997tt

Dayumm !

Is it really frustrating to drive this beast in traffic ? I found the CLS63AMG very annoying in traffic as I had to wait for a large gap between the front car before I even tapped the accelerator.

With 900nm torque this one must be a nightmare to maneuver in bumper-to-bumper traffic.

Love the innocent look of the E class.
This is what is really meant as a wolf disguised in sheep's clothing.
Would definitely out do the 911 on the straights. I'm Sure.

yepp on a straight line its quicker than pretty much anything in india... as for traffic driving its pretty easy to drive around however its not sensible to floor it if there are cars on the road as it does pick up speed rediculously. if the traction is switched on then its good to go. cant wait for the monsoons

all this while, i, and im sure many many others, used to believe that a certain orange Lambo LP640 with Hamann exhausts was the fastest in a straight line. (barring GSs Skyline, cause its beyond impossible to drive that on public roads). and the car which comes along to beat it happens to be an E Class?
who would have known!! and you dont even have to put up with all the Super/Hypercar tantrums!! really nice car buddy!! only now am i starting see the point in such cars!!
Cheers!!
