CARS SPOTTED : SOUTH AUSTRALIA

Recommended Posts

Also was trounced by a brand new AMG C63 Merc. Was feeling a little slow until I read they come with a 6.3L V8 with 510hp, now I feel better.

 

6.2L and closer to 450hp actually... i left one behind just yesterday

 

You may be correct, it seems they just badged it with 6.3L despite it being 6.208L. However, I can't find anything about it being 450hp, most seem to say a minimum of 500hp. I still have no idea what model/type it was, I was just going on the badging and that fact that it was a very quick coupe.

it's not that i "may" be correct. it's that i am correct. i dont know what google you're using but i just did a quick search and i consistently come up with 451hp. oh wait, let me get my mate to check his owner's manual. yep, 451hp. that's the same for both the C63 sedan as well as coupe.

 

there is a development package (option) that brings it up to 481hp but you can't really spot that from the outside.

 

and they all have the "6.3" badge. something about complying to german law and rounding up the displacement.. or something. also, to pay tribute to racing car from 1969 or something.. a Mercedes 300 6.3L...

Either way it cost a f*ckton more than the 180 and has more power so I still don't feel bad :D

there aren't any Black Series AMG's in Adelaide... plenty of normal C63's in both sedan and coupe form (451hp) but not the Black Series (510hp).

That's probably a similar page of which I stumbled onto with my phone hence why I thought it was 500hp but yeah, it didn't look like that so I'm happy to concede that I was wrong and that your response to my question was over the top.

Spotted the start of a police chase at 9:40pm last night on Salisbury Hwy - cops followed a guy in silver falcon (I thought it was a wagon) round the corner near Parafield Gdns High. They put the reds & blues on & he pinned it down the side street. I joked to the missus that it was a bit early for a chase. Heading towards Main North Rd I saw a cop car moving quickly through traffic on John Rice Ave towards the area the chase was, I continued on through the big roundabout by the Holden factory and then noticed a car come flying up behind me and just tail me.

 

A minute later the locals spotted me being patted down by the cops..... The cop car coming the other way saw me ( I drive a silver falcon), turned around and pulled me over. Was a case of wrong place wrong time, even had a laugh with them about it as i told them I'd seen the chase start when they mentioned they were responding to an incident with a silver falcon.

Another case of mistaken identity. At least they had a laugh!

Spotted an Aristo and an RX8 pulled over on the southern expressway the other day (Thursday or Wednesday afternoon). Don't think they were racing. I'd seen the RX8 beforehand, but the first time I saw the Aristo was when it was pulled over.
