re: Top 5 favorite motors


We had a stock 265 CI in our 55 Bel Air. It was a big heavy car with a huge seat for making out! Oh wait, we were talking about great motors....sorry.

Jaguar engines sure did have the looks to back up their reliability

The V8 in the MB C63AMG sounds amazing. We recently purchased an Audi S6. I love how quiet the engine is at idle, but stomp the gas an it brings smile to your face every time. The sleeper cars are where it's at!!

Yup. Really sucks that MB phased out the motor for the twin turbo mill...nothing beats a 6.0+ liter, naturally aspirated V8 IMO.

Honestly love it. Plenty fast, super comfortable, handles great. Did you get the B&O stereo? It's expensive but worth it.

re: Top 5 favorite motors


Got B&O, innovation pkg.with heads up and night vision, and silver moonlight interior. My exterior is Garnett Red.

I had an A7 for 15 months prior (put 88,000 miles on it!). I realized the power difference big time when I had a loaner last week and they gave me a 3.0 A6 (which is pretty fast)--it just didn't have the raw power of the "S".

426 hemi. I have no other than four more 426 hemis. I'm a fan of raw displacement and power. The 426 did it big and did it ugly. All it wanted to do was twist the crankshaft... and your transmission... and your differential... and your axles... and your chassis.
