I have always loved the big AMG Mercedes cars. In 2003 when they released the supercharged 5.5 liter V8′s with 493 horsepower, I immediately wanted one. I found a very nicely kept 2003 S55 in Atlanta for sale by a private individual with about 90k miles in 2008 and bought it. I drove it about 15k miles and someone made an illegal left turn and hit me head on. We were both going 15-20 miles per hour and it absolutely destroyed his Camry but everyone was ok.
