I went back home (in MD) for a few days to spend time with my family for T-giving... While there, I went to my local Mercedes dealer in Silver Spring, MD (Herb Gordan) to finally get the useless teleaid feature activated. Outside was a brand new 2003 Black CL600. Michael Jordan was taking delivery of the car... Twin Turbo V12... 0-60 in 4.7 seconds... Damn.. and no, I didn't approach the b&b legend..

A TT V12 that only does 4.7? Why does that sound a little underachieving?

The CL/S600 is a MASSIVE CAR which weighs about 4800 lbs or more... Compared with say a BMW M3 which weighs 1500 lbs less... What amazes me is that a car so heavy and big can be so fast

1) slushbox
2) grip
3) who cares, that thing is sick!

I don't think it has anything to do with "slushbox"... Automobile magazine had a comparo with the E55, M5, RS6, and X-type R and the automatic RS6 did 0-60 in 4.3 sec... Much faster than everything else.... And grip is not a big factor cause the sports pkg on the CL600 give it HUGE foot prints.... It's more weight than anything else I'm sure...

Is the 4800lbs with or without the price tag on it? :crazy:

By the way, the dealer told me that the Jordan's CL600 as equipped carried a very heavy window sticker of $139,000 which must be the culprit for the extra weight....

Did he take you out back and poke you in the shitter with his Alabama blacksnake?
I thought he was from North Carolina?


















Shut up. I know it's from Platoon.
EDIT: I'm stupid. It was Full metal Jacket. I always get those two mixed up. My bad.
