Hi.

The deal has been done and am now the new custodian of a 2012 S63 AMG BiTurbo.
The drive back from Chelmsford was a painful one, couldn't get rid of the smile all the way. The sound of the V8 rumble is very good but that acceleration is another thing. The turbos in sport mode are fantastic. Puts it in par with the Jensen rumble that I had but that was 8.2l naturally aspirated
Pictures will come once I get it detailed.
Eye candy and pure music for the ears.

Like that - I like that it doesn't shout FAST like so many modern cars seem to need to. Great sleeper for those traffic light moments.

Looks fantastic and satisfying to drive, but I'll bet there's only one of your cars you could fix with a basic tool kit...

Yes, I had an Interceptor for 33 years, and I'd happily admit it would be the first one to break down in the first place!

Over heating was main bug bear of most Jensen owners. We had the engine out and repaired and put back in 6 Hours once with basic tools

Basic tools for the Jensen alright. Complete Big-End and Mains job in-situ, with just a few spanners...

Did I mention I was lying on an inch of snow as well?

I still work on the ML when possible but I choose the projects carefully!
