Is it possible to have a genuine German Panzer, that drives like a sports car?
Sounds impossible, but is nevertheless true. A few bubbling spots in the paintwork, but nothing critical whatsoever. Rest of the paintwork is impeccable.
Tried out another 300 CE 24 Valve, but decided that the 12 valve would do, and saved 50 percent on the purchase that way.
Handles better than the XJ6 Series 2 I had 20 years ago. Is faster than the Galant GTI I previously owned, even when being 300 kilos heavier.
Ever since I saw the 280 Coupe from the mid seventies, I have admired such lines in a car (why I bought XJ6 XK 38 instead of XK 40).
I almost got these lines in this car without the to heavy body like the S Class has got.
Airbag... got it... original onboard computer... got it, even though it's a bit slow being from 1990.
This car will be serviced and maintained, and will probably be in my possession until the GP denies the renewal of my license in 30 years from now.
Why did I not discover these cars before. Also had Ford Capri 2,3 GT and a lot of other stuff... nothing compares to "Big Beautiful Bertha", which I chose to call the Merc.
I hope some of the engineers designing her reads this... they most certainly deserves to know what a fantastic car this is even after 19 years... MB forever!!!
