C Class

So there's a knock on the door. It was my mate David. "Want to go for a drive?" I looked at what was parked in the driveway.

"Hurry up!" I called to him from the driver's seat of the 2008 model Mercedes C class.

This car is so new it hasn't been released yet. They don't go on sale until January next year.

0 to 120kph in about 1/10th of a second, and this is a diesel! I was pressed back into the seat and started giggling like the Genie in that mini ad.. I think I'm turning into a short Jeremy Clarkson. 7 speed auto transmission, almost 100mpg, stereo by Harmon Kardan, satnav, very nice and clear instrument panel with all the important dials (speedo, tacho... oh and temperatures and such) What's this button do? It opened the front and rear sunroofs. Sunrooves.

The suspension soaked up the bumps like magic. We were on the back roads of Dubbo and it felt like we were on a motorway.

And it was $20k less than the Lexus GS450h.

Yeah, I could go for one.
