In 1990 I purchased a Mercedes 500sl .
The seat of the pants was great better than my Rx 7s and cruising at 80 felt like 35 an awesome ride.
V 8 | Vee-Type
Displacement : 4983 cc | 304.1 cu in. | 5.0 L.
Power : 322 BHP (236.992 KW) @ 5500 RPM
Torque :332 Ft-Lbs (450 NM) @ 4000 RPM
Knowing my future premium awd will have better stats I'd like to know how others feel about the seat of the pants experience.( 500sl 0-60 6.3 sec.)
Thanks for your input

The first ride thread suggests we will be happy. Not "ludicrous mode" happy maybe, but remember EV=instant torque which really, really makes a difference.
