    Got my ass handed to me by a Mercedes

    I was on my way to school about 15 minutes ago. I stopped for a red light and this dark skinned guys (might have been Middle Eastern or Hispanic, I wasn't sure, pulled up next to me in this silver Mercedes. He looked over at me and nodded, I took that as a sign he was going to do something, I was wrong. I launched from the light at about 3k and took off. As I shifted to 2nd I see this silver streak flash past my passenger door.

    ...



    ...

    I was stunned...he flew past me like I was standing still

    As I came up to the next light, I made sure to check the back of his car. Here's what I saw: "S65 AMG". I don't know Mercedes that well, but I do know that AMG is their "Performance Package", or something like that. This made me intrigued as to what was under that hood.

    When I got to school, I made a beeline for a computer to look up "S65 AMG". I found out that it has a 604hp V12...I breathed easier knowing that he had twice my hp...not so bad after-all.

    Just after I moved to the Philly area I was drivin with my girl and pulled up next to a blue Mercedes that had V12 badges on it (I didn't get the model though). I was lookin at the car and I got revved at, so I was like...uhh, I'm gonna get my ass kicked...the guy took off, and I flew right by him....Maybe he just couldn't drive, but I blew right by the guy after he launched on me......??? Need to get some Nitrous lol

    I think I saw this model a month or so ago. It was a silver Merc with an AMG V12 Turbo badge. I was at a traffic light although we were both behind several cars, I was trying to read these badges a second and third time to be sure. I wondered if this guy had some fake badges on the car because it just seems outrageous if he was legit.
