Default Pretty cool Mercedes video

Not much going on in boating until Key West so......
This isn't on the boat but it is still pretty cool.
I got a Mercedes CL65 and sent it to Rentech to have the performance stuff done. The car is a friggen animal. It is probably the fastest car I ever drove. I can see the biggest expense on the car is going to be tires!!

I drove a BMW M6 convertible yesterday. Only got it to 130 because of heavy rush hour traffic, but I will never forget it. The owner said it's a 180mph car and I believe him because I was at only half throttle in 5th gear on the "M" setting(550hp).

The fastest I've ever been in any vehicle was 155 in my 1979 Jaguar XJ12L.

With the Renntech package that car will go low 11's in the 1/4, maybe even high 10's. With that package I think the horsepower goes up to the mid 800 range with over 900 ft lbs torque. Those twin turbo V-12's are killer motors.

Hard to judge if it's faster then the Lambos. Completely different kind of power. The Lambos are all wheel drive that come off the line slow and then the acceleration is crazy. This car is power. All i did was turn off the traction control and stomp on it. It will keep spinning the wheels through third gear. I'm sure it will blow out the tires if i keep going.
It's hard to believe it's a Mercedes. If the windows are up, i hardly hear the tires spinning.

You better stick to Cummins stuff......

Unless that M6 was chipped it is 500 HP and electronically limited to 155 as most German cars are. Even with 550 HP an M6 won't hit 180.....
