  • [Traitor Car] Mercedes CL600 Bi-Turbo

    OK, so as I didn't hide it particularly well - here's the new car!

    I liked the Monaro, with the mods it was VERY quick and it was comfortable and nice to drive BUT I didn't love it. This car came up, I got offered a deal too good to refuse on part-exchanging the Monaro so here I am!

    Welcome to the Mercedes CL600 Bi-Turbo!
    Specifications are as follows:

    Mercedes CL600
    Black
    5.5 litre V12 Bi-Turbo engine
    Petrol
    Automatic
    Brembo Brakes
    500bhp
    0-60mph in 4.6 seconds
    Top speed limited to 155mph (rumour has it removing the limiter means 200mph...!)

    As for gadgets/functionality the list is never ending, but here are just a few things the CL600 option list included...
    Bose speaker system
    Heated leather seats
    Ventilated (air conditioned) leather seats
    Fully electrically adjustable seat
    Massage function seats
    In-car refridgerator
    Auto-opening boot
    Heated steering wheel
    Distronic cruise control (proximity sensors)
    In-car phone
    Full navigation system
    "Keyless Go" system
    DVD and TV
    Tyre pressure sensoring
    Double glazed windows
    Languatronic full voice control
    Electrically adjustable suspension
    Electronic privacy blind
    Electric sunroof
    ... it really is endless!

    It's taking a while to get my head round using all the toys, but as for driving it - can't get enough of it! The power is unbelievable, it just feels effortless and so so smooth! Only downside (maybe) is that it's very quiet, but the addition of the AMG exhaust system (not an if, just a when!) will solve that! On the subject of upgrades/modifications, I have a new set of wheels on the way too as not keen on the ones it came with. Anyway enough talk, see pics below! Comments welcome as always


    Here's the car

              Many many buttons. I assume one of them controls the ejector seat and the machine guns.

                That's really nice.
                Fine fine car.

                Does this feel as quick as the TVR?

                  Not a huge fan, I think they look quite dated. And automatic, not cool. Preferred the Monaro.

                      I like it but don't like the New wheels you ordered, imo those mono blocks would look loads better

                        Not a fan either...

                        Nothing wrong with the auto boxes on these, I just don't think it really has that "special" factor...

                          I've yet to find those, nut hopefully when I do it'll be at an appropriate time!

                          It doesn't feel quick at all strangely, but it is. Very quick - there's a chance it's faster than the TVR!

                          Really? I think the old wheels look boring, new ones are much sportier!

                          You have to drive it for that special factor

                              It probably doesn't feel as fast as the TVR because it'll be like sitting on a high performance luxury sofa.
