2006 MercSL65 AMG in the 1/4 mile

Drag Star: 2006 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG – Automobile Magazine

Mercedes has a car that eats pavement like cheerios. The SL65 AMG packs 604-hp under the hood and has all the bells and whistles you’d expect in a $179,000 piece of german engineered alloy.

What happens when you take a Mercedes-Benz SL to a 1/4 mile drag track? Ezra Dyer finds out.

My favorite snippet:
Apply too much gas, though, and you’ll not only waste time smoking rubber, but the traction control might decide you’re a man not to be trusted and cut the power. This being a Mercedes, there’s a stern German hiding somewhere under the hood, and that sneaky bugger activates the traction control even when you’ve got it switched off.
