S65 Driving Impressions? Pig or beast?

So I was next to a brand new ( i presume) S65 bi-turbo monster, look over at the geriatric driver and think.."hmm...is that thing really as fast as it suggests"

MBZ is known for its huge powerplants...but can the s65 deliver?
the driver was putting along at a mere 40mph on a 50 zone...not in any sort of rush...lol

I heard it melts tires at a standstill. It's that powerful.

A quick google or youtube search will give you the answer: yeah it is.

It'll beat a Gallardo in a drag race, but probably not on a course, so yes on both counts.
