The build is cool, but asinine, downgrade IMO.

If it was an SS or another model, sure. But it's already a T-Type FFS.

That's insane. Well done. I was expecting a better exhaust note though.

Like most "T Types" and "Grand Nationals", I wouldn't be surprised if it's just a Regal with some of the T-Type/GN body parts.

But the exhaust note isn't far from what the v6 sounded like, so I don't really hate it. It probably would be a better driver without the MB 5AT though.

I remember the Jalop article for that S600. "Turn your used Benz into a Pagani"

That article and especially videos have become part of my soul..
I regularly look for W220 S600s...

Not great quality video, but loved how these sound spun up, too.
