With Daimler on board we can have the best of both worlds, why compromise?

The z would need 355 width rear tyres with that AMG engine in the car =)

funny, everyone's talking about the big AMG v8's for our sports cars when the only reason they have joined forces is to produce eco friendly small cars.

yeah, instead you will get astronomical curb weight, endless electrical problems, poor reliability, and expensive maintenance/repair costs

Well my Benz has 144,000 miles on it, most reliable car I've ever owned, no electrical problems whatsoever. Maintenance is expensive, but mostly due to the shitty US Dollar.
