For sale – 2010 Mercedes SL63 AMG – 32k miles – Sold

What a beast!

Now we know why the Mercedes is the official choice of safety car for the formula one races.

Nothing sounds as raw and brutal as the 6.3 V8 at full bore.

The torque figures are colossal and you can potter around town like a Mercedes diesel taxi or use the V8 as it was intended and turn heads everywhere you go.

Neighbours have been known to twitch their curtains when a 6.3 starts in the morning perhaps worrying that there is an earthquake.

This example is exceptional value and has been maintained to a high standard .

Go topless as often as possible so that you can hear the V8 at its clearest and with heated headrests you can do this with ease.

It’s as easy as they come to drive but massively entertaining at the same time.

Imagine you are leading the pack of F 1 cars around Spa during a safety car period.
