It simply does everything brilliantly and that potent normally aspirated six with a just about perfect 6 speed gearbox never fails to impress. I have to say this feels more of a Porsche to me than the current rendition of the 911, the 992. As usual I could not resist ticking far too many option boxes but I hope that you will agree it’s ...

This began with the 300SEL 6,3 model of the 1960’s followed by the 450SEL 6.9 in the next decade. The ...
