Default Re: Car of the week

For CLK's, I am on a nearly impossible quest:
A 2009 CLK500, with the quad cam VVT M273 5.4 litre engine. (last year of the CLK's)
A pocket rocket, but not with some of the AMG extra expenses and harsher ride.

285kW, 530 Nm,
but not not quite as much power as the last of the Holden 6.2 litre V8's.
Nevertheless, even a modern vehicle with electric power, which develops maximum torque at zero revs, should be able to best it 0-30 km/hr.
That's to the other side of an intersection, where you are still well within any speed limit. That is where low end torque is most useful.
