Hanna Montana's not driving a (Pontiac) Montana
Here's a change of pace! I usually only blog about classic cars but today I decided to saunter on over across the big pond and try on for size Miley Cyrus' new ride. Ain't she a beaut? Sorry. Not talking about Hanna Montana, here. I'm talking about this honkin' 2012 Mercedes Benz SL500. Man. This is hot. I'm not a fan of the color (black, please!) but this is one fine, FINE automobile!
Miley's rocket has a 5.5 liter, dual overhead cam, 32 valve V-8 making 382 horsepower. You have to be careful driving these because they are very, VERY fast. You can go from 0-60 faster than most toilets flush (wait...what?) and bury a gallon of premium gas like a '60s Buick. For those of us on a budget you can use regular but you won't take full advantage of the big V-8's big power. BTW, SL is for "super light" and 550 is for the 5.5 liter engine. Oh, so smooth. So, so german. Want!!
Cost? Figure about an even $100,000. Give or take.
