Mercedes Benz CL 500

Click To Enlarge

Well folks, I am in Los Angeles again and borrowed another car to test drive while I am here. This time round, I got the Mercedes Benz 500 CL. It is easy to guess if the friend, who lent me the car, is male or female by looking carefully at the photos. Not going to tell you here. I'd rather you go seek out the clues and figure it out.

Compared the to previous Mercedes Benz S65 AMG, this pales in comparison by a big distance. Despite the 5,000 cc enging capacity, the power on this car is really no fight against the S65 AMG.

Initially, I thought I was spoiled by the S65 AMG and that every car that I drive from thereon after will always be under-powered. However, after driving this 500 CL all over the place for an entire day, I've come to the conclusion that this car is really under-powered with or without the influence from the S65 AMG experience.

Still, the consolation for this car is that this is still more chio than the S65 AMG as the latter is a wee too big for my liking.

Since young, I have had this mentality that the BMW is superior to the Mercedes Benz. To make matters worse, driving a Mercedes Benz like very "uncle" leh, while I am of the perception that it is more "happening" to be driving a Beemer. Well, I have to say that after test driving both the S65 AMG and the CL 500, I think I am changing my mindset to favour Mercedes Benz more. More especially so after the 2003 design disaster of the BMW 7-Series (see below and click to enlarge).
