I have always owned Mercedes. In 2006 I brought a CLK55 AMG. This car was faster than any car BMW made that year. I received so many tickets I had to sell the car. It went from 0 to 60 in 4.00 seconds. 0 to 100 in 7.6 seconds. Threw you back into your seat as it accelerated. If you can find one of these, you would not believe it.
