Am I right in remembering that the CLK55 AMG used to be the F1 pace car? Can anyone remember when it was used (first started and then when it was replaced).

They use the SL65 AMG now, don't they?

Many thanks, Gary.

The SL63 and C63 sounded very good on the weekend and they both got quite an outing :)
