You have to be crazy to rent this car. I think it's crazy that I own it. AMG turned everything up to 11 on this car. It weighs 4500 pounds. It has 604 horsepower, 738 ft-lbs. of torque, 12 cylinders, twin turbochargers. The speed is insane.
Have fun with the car, but don't chew up the tires too badly. We'll measure tread depth at the start and end of each trip. Also, please give the engine a couple minutes to warm up before thrashing it (I know you're going to go fast, I'll be disappointed if you don't), and let the turbos cool off for a couple minutes before shutting it down. And be extra careful with the interior, it looks new and in a car like this it's important to keep it that way. My other cars are expected to wear out a bit, but this one is about the experience, not the utility.
My driver's review of the car:
I have mixed feelings about the AMG. I'm always looking for an excuse to drive it because it's addicting. But I also think the car is a bit stupid. It's luxurious in a way, being a top of the line Mercedes. It's fast like a Viper. But here's what happens. You're driving it down the street and not turning any heads because it looks like just another Mercedes. So you step on the gas a little to make some noise and hear the turbos spool up. That leads to the limited slip differential throwing the rear sideways as you quickly reach highway speeds. Your heart pounds louder than a Toyota Corolla blasting Reggaeton as your face goes paler than a Scot's. That's not luxury. And it's not the broad smile that redlining a little sports car as you fling it into a turn generates. With the AMG, you're inevitably afraid that you'll get a ticket, hit a pedestrian, scratch the rims, or merely look like an idiot as you lose control. And maybe it ruins the fun of ordinary sports cars a little because almost everything else feels slow after driving the AMG. Go rent an MR2, an S2000, a Mustang, a Corvette, a Boxster. Something that shows you have taste, style, personality. Nobody likes a person who shows up in an AMG. Don't say I didn't warn you. :)
