Enzo vs. Benz SLK

Is it just me or did the Enzo get his butt kicked? Those two cars sounded incredible.

Yeah, that's the same as seen on google videos (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6562545432920382091&q=slk&pl=true)

What I don't understand is why some one would pay to have an SLR engine put in an SLK. What was wrong with the SLR in the first place?

That has to be Stefan....the guy that left his Enzo wrecked in half and said someone else (Deitrich)did it.


Also why is someone, who I hope had seat time in an Enzo before they chose to race it, giddy about seeing 160mph? You just hold the right pedal down. That has to be Stefan.

Dork!

The video is actually an SLK, allegedly with an SLR engine in it... I just don't get it.
