Yep. A hand built 5.5L supercharged V8 493hp and 515lbs of torque. The square plate on top of the supercharger is the signature of the person who built it. And yes, once you go black it's hard to go back. High maintenance on keeping it clean for sure.Very nice, the car looks really clean, especially the interior. Whats it got under the hood? Supercharged V8?
I love black cars, they look great when they're clean, but they're such a pain to keep clean. Do you still have the SC? I remember seeing you post pictures of it in one of your threads a while ago.
Very nice. I really like those years of Mercedes with that style of headlights. I think they look great. I'm sure with that power you won't have any worries merging onto the interstate haha. I've got a black 4Runner and it's a pain to keep it clean, so I feel your pain. The good thing about it though is it being a 4Runner it looks good covered in dirt and mud too. Hopefully she treats you well, and good luck selling the SC if you decide to do so!Yep. A hand built 5.5L supercharged V8 493hp and 515lbs of torque.

I do still have the SC. Once I get comfortable with the Benz I'll probably sell it.

I was rear ended in this car a year ago last month and the insurance company totaled it. That morning the odometer rolled 150k miles. It was still a very tight and solid car. In the short time I owned it I went to 16 states and put about 70k miles on it. It was a fantastic car. Now they do eat rear tires but that's due to the active suspension lowering the car a highway speeds causing negative camber. That part wore on my pocketbook some but I enjoyed every mile in that car. It's not a bad car to own as long as you can DIY.Ken, cool as they are, I only really like them in theory. It's one of those cars that I would only personally buy if it had fairly high miles, for the simple fact that a car that's in the shop more often than not can't reach high mileage.
