    I love the noise the V8 makes now Alec.

    Most S Class owners would be horrified lol.

    Just left the car with MSL for open heart surgery...

    Got indicated 35.5mpg on the journey down with some traffic

    To get a baseline, on the dyno it made 412bhp and 468lb/ft at the wheels! Around 480bhp at crank.
