Media day at willow springs

CL55AMG over at the AMG private lounge posted about a media day for AMG at the streets of Willow (Willow Springs raceway) last Wednesday. He put 20 laps on the black series and has a good report. Heres a few photos for those that cant access the lounge.

are you talking about the CLK63 black series? the black series is probabaly getting the 507 hp 6.2 liter v8, while the DTM i think is powered by a 5.4 liter v8 packing 580 horses. well, it's not faster than a DTM of course. it's probably like 1/10th of the price anyways.

p.s. i think the DTM is almost as fast as the SLR from 0 to 60mph.
