E63 AMG - Tie!
So, I rolled through Arby's after spending the day with my mom, who is in a rehab center after a nasty fall on Thursday, and pulled out of the lot with a #2 Roast Beef sandwich in hand. Munching on that nice, hot, sammy, I roll up on an E63, I think it was the last vintage. Tinted windows, black wheels, nice sounding exhaust, we leave the light with me behind him. Rolling past some traffic, I get out in front of him and the car in front of him clears.
I move over to the right and put it in Sport mode and ESC off, and he comes up. We're doing about 50, and he hits it just before I did.
He pulls a fender on me, but does not pull on me AT ALL...matter of fact, I'm making that fender back up!! I'm right with him, going around a left curve (so, technically, the longer path!). His girl is in the passenger side looking over, and I look at her and take a nice bite out of my sandwich and smile. She's cracking up, and gives me a thumbs up!
We run up to about 110 and just as I pull even with him, we have to slow for the light and traffic ahead. I give him a thumbs up and he slides over and takes the right.
Each and every day, I am just more impressed with this car! I freaking love that I hung with a much more expensive ride!!! I love the sound of those Mercs, too!
Wish I could have raced him from a dig....
