Re: Mercedes CL65 AMG 'revealed'

My neighbour had the old one, but chopped it in for a bog standard E class. Hard times I suppose.

Yeah, its dirt cheap to create a high performance engine and handbuild it from scratch, and to fit a bespoke drivetrain including steering, suspension and brakes.

if you dont like the car then so what, there has always been,and always will be a (relatively) large worldwide market for these cars.
