    I drove an ML63 today

    All I can say is that thing is an absolute beast! The Cayenne Turbo S better be good, because this thing will outrun the Cayenne Turbo hands down! Awesome car, bit pricey though!

    Re: I drove an ML63 today

    Oh no.. here we go again

    But if you got one of those you could park one of your other cars in the back and help relieve your garaging problem.

    I know its not 'politically correct' but I'd love one of those hyper-powered SUVs but they just don't work in the UK with the narrow streets and cameras everywhere... oh, yes... and the 190mph+ turbo I just ordered is soo much more suited

    Re: I drove an ML63 today

    you just ordered a 997tt Rich C ? very good choice... what colours did you choose ?

    Mustn't hijack Mike S's thread, but due to the 12 mth leadtime in the UK I've got 9 months to deliberate.. current possibilities

    Cobalt (demo car I drove was in this - looked stunning and would compliment Dreamcars new Boxster on a future Rennteam UK meet!)
    Carrera White (have wanted a white car for ages, have to be brave to do so in the UK, but the Turbo suits it I think)
    Meteor Grey (well last two P cars were Seal, so a change.. sort of!)
    Baltic Blue (Colour to Sample - but the Cab posted here a while back looked stunning, and whats an extra Pounds1k or so when you're spending Pounds100k! )

    Check the 997 Turbo board for more updates.....

    Mike,

    The environmentalists will love you... keeping buying all those vehicles and keeping them off the road as you can only drive one at a time... you're the 'greenest' person I know.... apart from all of us who are jealous of your ever growing collection.....

    Re: I drove an ML63 today

    That ML63 are so fast. Saw in a test they did 0-200kmh at 17.5sec

    Re: I drove an ML63 today

    Mike, they test the Turbo S in the new car mag.... I dont have it, just read a bit of it so cannot post exact numbers, but I was kinda impressed by its performance...

    Indeed, if he keeps buying cars at this rate he should get his own board here at Rennteam - the Mike S board

    Very good proposal, I support that!

    Re: I drove an ML63 today

    Mike....sorry to be a kill joy , but that ML is SO ugly
    It' s one of the the worst looking SUV ever , close to Sanyoung !!!
    Save some space in your garage for th Q7 V12

    Re: I drove an ML63 today

    ML63 is priced 20% cheaper than the Cayenne Turbo in Australia and more importantly about the same price as the C55. We have different tax for 4WD SUVs compared to standard cars for agricultural purposes. When you say it is pricey, how does the pricing compare to other cars?

    I am green with envy with your collection like others. Maybe I can go visit your "car museum" one day if I do make my way to South Africa!

    Re: I drove an ML63 today

    The ML63 knocked the Cayenne turbo off the throne as best SUV / 4x4 in Evo magazine.

    You mean actually a ML63 is subject to lower tax because POTENTIALLY some farmer could use it as a farming equipment??? GENIUS

    Haha. There are always debates on this issue. But it does make SUV's cheaper in this country. ML63 in particular is a bargain. For the same money I could buy either a E500 or a ML63 to go with my sports cars. I know which one I would choose...if only I can afford the cost of fuel of the ML63!

    After putting the pedal to the metal, I can see past it's looks! Man that thing's performance really impressed me. Absolutely no throttle lag like the problem the Cayenne has, power is instantaneous!

    The ML is about $183,300 US and the Cayenne Turbo with all it's options was $281,000 US

    Problem with the Turbo S is that it still suffers the same disease what all Cayenne's suffer from. It has that annoying throttle hesitation.

    Hahaha thanks Ron I will know by Friday if the deal goes through. They need to get a hold of a white one for me first.

    Mike, you change your cars more often than I change my undies!

    he dont change them resb, he collects them..
    agree with ron , consider the ml in the garage by next week..

    Re: I drove an ML63 today

    I would have never bought the Cayenne TT if this car was out two years ago.

    I went to spec it with options that should be standard:

    ML $88k

    C TT $99k

    C TTS $122k

    Ouch, I don't even think the new Cayenne will close the gap, knowing the ML is faster than the C TTS... Maybe it will not have the sporty feels the Cayenne has (which was the case when I tried the old ML55 AMG). Else, Porsche is in big troubles.

    Re: I drove an ML63 today

    ML 63 is awesome. In Australia they are $159,990 AUD which is about $120,000 USD.
