Throwback Thursday – Jay Leno’s Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren
In the 2000s, cars such as the Porsche Carrera GT and Ferrari Enzo were all engine – and no hybrid power. Others were, too, but they had a little extra. For instance, take the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.
For 2015, both Maybach and Bentley have new models, and Motor Trend has put them against each other in a proper “Head 2 Head.”
Two station wagons being flogged around a race track makes plenty of sense when you’re talking about the Mercedes-AMG C63 Estate and the Audi RS4 Avant, and there is more than 900 horsepower between them.
At first glance this is a pretty one-sided fight. The Mercedes is smaller, has less interior space, and is far less powerful. Take a closer look though.
When we stumbled upon a glorious thread of members posting pics of their hot C63’s, you can understand why we thought it’d be appropriate to create an ode to such a wonderfully, naturally aspirated beast.
