MPG sucks on my car.

But where did I ever imply that my engine was of the type discussed in the original aricle posted?

EricG You can make a go-kart with "V8-Like" performance too. Most cars with big enignes are big cars too with room in the back seat for passengers. My in-laws are not going to fit in the back seat of most cars with 4 and 6 cylinder engines...the ones that they will fit in SURPRISE do not have the performance of a V8. Mind blowing concept

I love my new 5.5L v12 twin tubo Merc and it's a savage beast with far better fuel economy than my previous 5.0L N/A v8 !

I think about it this way....the big displacement AMG engines that are available right now are like a finely seasoned milf.

They'll fuck your brains out, and they're fully updated with latest and greatest technology (read: $10,000 boob jobs, labiaplasty and the trendy new personal trainer), but I'd rather take the 19 year old sex kittnen who's gonna go for hours and then want more even though you're on the verge of cardiac arrest.

Both packages will rock your nuts off, but the young slut will just keep getting better and better, while the seasoned milf will just look old in comparison.

DJPoop Aren't the new merc 6.2 liter engines n/a? Either way, I'd give my third nut to drive one of those.....but it would be way more impressive if they could squeeze the same power out of say 4.2 liters and get way better gas milage.
