WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW













The world has become a tad more dark for the dawn of the new M3. O yes, thee above has the new ALL AMG 6.3 V8 w/ 481hp and 630NM of torque. Someone save me from myself.

CSL63...








6.3 V8, 514HP, 630 NM of torque..... SICKNESS..... best of all, it looks better than the M5, probably outpace it in the higher revv range... probably doesn't handle as well

That one looks a bit better. I still like the M5 for it's agressive look. That CLS63 has more of a classy sleek look to me. Oh, and the tail lights aren't as HUGE as the first cars which is a good thing.

The CLS's designed is far more well balanced than that of the M5, what the M5 has over this car is handling.......... that's it.

Sorry, but Mercedes-Benz has never done it for me, even though there is one amongst our family.

The days of the manual tranny are numbered. Won't be long til you see BMW sticks replaced by the new "ZSG" box.

i like the look, but not the functionality of the CLS, but personal preference wise, i'm not a big mercedes fan, especially now that the quality and reliability have worsened.

OK, there is one Benz I go for at the moment.(I already saw a 'testmule' driving at the Mercedes testtrack when we had a driftday there a year ago, couldn't take picsrohibited)

582BHP V8 biturbo, 800Nm, 0-100(62mph):3,9secs 0-200kmh(124):around 10secs... BUT the car has an autobox and weighs about 1700kgs....

Forgot to mention what it's called : CLK DTM AMG

But it's as fast as the SLR maybe even faster on a track:

As the saying here in Germany goes, "if I want a MB I'll call a taxi".

Highly doubful as it was the US Market that demanded BMW AG offer a 6 speed manual in the E60 M5 instead of only offering SMG.
