I hate when I have to pass a cool car for sale, to work everyday. It’s a real struggle not to walk in and sign the dotted line. Haha. My current struggle is with a ’96 Mercedes Benz SL500 in black complete with the sexy hardtop. Call it weird or odd, but I’ve wanted that car for a long time now, and one just happens to be for sale down the street from my house. What I go through! Ha! One day, one day. I figured I’d show you guys one of the nicer examples I’ve seen. It’s simple but really stands out with the un-common green paint and über-lovely set of BBS’. I understand why this car isn’t popular, but rad 90’s flava can’t be denied.
Lets face it, when it comes to going fast, it really isn’t the priority for a bunch of vdubbers. You definitely see more Honda heads on the quarter mile track then volkswagens when the shows come around. It does get you to wonder. I guess it has to the do with the ease of moding Honda motors as opposed to German motors. You really don’t see many 9-second small German cars, while there are dozens of Honda’s that can hit 9’s all day long. Not sure if its disappointing or not, but it does suck when it comes to quarter mile times, and Honda’s owning the game. At the end of the day it boils down to what guys are into now-a-days.
Found this vid of a 900hp 16v that has been spread around the interwebs, and going into the 8’s. I must say, that’s REALLY impressive for a street car. What’s even better is that he drives it home. Props!
