My experience of Driving a Mercedes SL600 V12
Wanted to Share my experience of Driving a Mercedes-Benz SL600 V12
I had gone to Hyderabad on 2nd March and my uncle who repairs all imported cars called me up on 3rd at about 12:30AM and says to come to his Garage saying there is a surprise for me.
I reached his place at 1:00AM and this is what I saw.
2000 SL600 V12
Huge tires 245/35 *19
The car had 19” huge alloys and 35 Profile Tire.
Then after about an hour looking at the car I said I want a ride.
So me, my Uncle and 2 of his kids went for a drive.
The car is 2 door hard top convertible.
The car had little less than 400BHP.
4 speed Auto
He started the Monster and it roared.
It was the Best sound I had ever heard in my life.
We went to Hi-Tech city for a drive, he touched 160 without any problem.
On the way back he stopped the car and popped out asking me to come to the Drivers seat and drive it.
First I said no no.
Then he was forcing me to drive it so I hoped in the driver’s seat.
Adjusted the Seat, released the Hand break and wala I was driving the V12 Monster.
If I remember it right when I had stepped down on the Accelerator and it did 120 in 4 Secs, I might be wrong but I was too excited to see the stopwatch at that time.
After we reached his home he showed me the Engine bay and there was no space to even put ur hand inside, it had a K&N filter in it.
The best part was that you can adjust the Height of the car sitting inside the car with buttons,
If you want the front part to be low and back part to be High, you can do it...
So at about 3-3:30 I started for home and was on the Top of the World…

Gr8 going Zulfikar!
I personally havent driven anything bigger than a 211 HP 3.5L V6 Engine (Chevy Impala - Auto). That was when I was in U.S. and yes ' that was'.
Hope to be a part of the 'driven-V12' club sometime in future.

I would love to be in your place someday dude!! Yes, right when you are in the seat of that V12.
Does the owner of the car knows about your drive in it?
