Anyone catch Top Gear Last night?  Lord, the Mercedes AMG CLK 63 Black Series!  The exhaust note alone is enough to heal the sick, feed the hungry, and bring about world peace.  Wow, what a car.

Too bad I don't have a hundred fifty large hanging around.  Come on Mega Millions!!!

The vid is long and bandwidth hungry, but very, very worth it if you're a car nut.

If I was to ever win the lottery, It'd be a new Cub Crafters Top Cub for me, a Toyota Tundra, and guns...lots and lots of guns...and a couple of boats...

I saw it, having become a Top Gear junkie after reading about it here. I'm normally able to disdain a ride that expensive. But, as you say, what a car. It certainly impressed Commodore Clarksonio.

I got to drive a 2005 AMG CLS55 over the summer when my Dad and his friend were too drunk to make it home from lunch...

Holy jebus.  In the past two years since I sold my car, I've only driven a 21' Uhaul. a few F150s, and a Yari (not by choice--long story).  In my entire life, the only thing I've driven with anything even approaching above-average performance is my mom's old Volvo S80 Turbo.

The CLS55, I can't even compare it to any other car I've ever driven.  You touch the gas and the car is somehow much further down the road than it has any right being.  And God is that thing comfortable.

Nice exhaust note on that!

The only "hot" car I'd gotten to drive was an NSX.

Which was a bit amusing, because the controls felt so familiar, but the tiniest touch to the gas pedal quickly reminded you that it was, indeed, of supercar status and barely modified for track racing. That is, you'd remember that after you retrieved your eyeballs from behind the seat. cheesy

Man, did that thing MOVE.

I wouldn't change my life much if I came into a lot of money. I like how I live. I'd probably buy a 09 model Tacoma though.  smiley

I'd buy a crapload of land, so much that from my front porch I could fire a .50 BMG and the bullet will hit the dirt before it leaves the property.

The term "Supercar" seems apt. Kind of like a weightlifter in a suit, eh?

Or, as Jeremly Clarkson described another AMG product, "an axe murderer with headlights."

My favorite part (other than every time the car whizzes by sounding oh so sweet) is where he's reading off the litany of warnings from Mercedes.  He finishes with a dead serious "Sound's dangerous", then breaks out in a big Cheshire Cat This-Is-Gonna-Be-GREAT!!! grin.

Funny, Brad: I said exactly that to my wife at that point in the clip. "Sounds dangerous" is kind of the clarion call for "Men up!"

These guys are kinda like the folks on Mythbusters.  They get to play with all the best toys, and seem to have such fun while they do.  Oh, the envy...  grin

Very cool car.  I'd still like a Hayabusa instead, though.   grin

I'd buy a crapload of land, so much that from my front porch I could fire a .50 BMG and the bullet will hit the dirt before it leaves the property.
The way I heard it put, I'd like to be able to fire a rifle in the air in any direction at random from my home, and be certain that when the bullet came down, the only person it could possibly endanger would be a trespasser.

As for Mercedes . . . my folks had one when I was in high school, and I learned how to drive in it. Nice car - when it was running. It was in the shop a lot. To this day I regard Mercedes as over-engineered, under-executed Eurotrash.
