Yes, but you have to fork out almost $2800 to be one of 10 in the driving experience package....

They will get it to. These super cars \ limted editions are rarely if ever let out on test drives. So for someone willing to plunk down a few hundred thousands, $2,800 is a bargain to actually get to "try before you buy".

They say that this is why some of those exclusive car rental clubs are so successful. Only way to test certain cars before buying.

Me? I don't have $2,800 burning a hole in my pocket. But wish I did!

I guess what I was trying to say is that I'd rather spend the $1400 and go north to the AMG driving/track event and drive my 55 with instructors and drive a C63 around. Sounds like a better deal to me.

If only I hadn't loaned about that much to my dead beat brother-in-law...
