My buddy just bought an 2004 AMG C32. Great deal with 8000 miles.
Please understand that I drive a "Semi slow as $h1t" Mazdaspeed Protege, so peddling down on this thing is a different experience.
Granted it's a "Shift Tronic" auto tranny, but it hauls. I planted it with the expectation that I'd take it up to 100 or 110mph on an empty highway. My bad. It was so smooth that I was doing well past that before I came to my senses and throttled back.
Not my type of car, but damn, do I respect it's power now.
M3's beware...this thing will eat them for lunch...
