My whole life consists of wondering whether or not to make the sarcastic comment.


Awesome -- the kind of driving it was made for :D

Nice!  Another case of "All day long at 100mph..."   ;D
Now:  1976 6.9 Euro, 2015 GL550

A actually remarkable job two additional videos;,

They should be super proud of what they accomplished.


Holy cow that is impressive!  I would love to see the total $ spent on this little caper...For me the best part is that 6 speed manual and how they can cruise @ 130 MPH at lowish revs, incredible.
