SLK55 ruins car dealers day

Out for a casual drive, stunning R8 on a test drive pulls up behind quickly. We both end up at lights together and i knew he was going to go for it. I unusually get perfect traction off the line and put him behind by the length of my car. Unfortunately we both got to a bend and traffic and he got stuck. I assume it wasn't the V10, plus mine isn't stock. Good fun! I think the R8 is the only car I would currently change to.
jbanks15 and godfather like this.

Like you I think both the R8 and SLK 55 are cars I would like to own. RWD does have advantages over quattro pulling away in good conditions ;-)
