Teemu, how did you like our track in Bikernieki, Latvia?
It was awesome, very fast track. will definitely come next year too. 🙂
there i was created one video for your with this amazing car
Excellent, thanks 🙂
and some photos
VATliX, Tu arī te :naac:
Thanks, I’ve added that above 🙂
That is without doubt the best diesel engine I have ever heard. And it’s also amazing that it can rev high enough for drifting.
Best diesel car i saw so for…others only make alot of smoke and sound like a tractor…
What engine is on it? TDI or a more advanced diesel Merc engine?
In Finland there are these old diesel-mercs with engines up to like 800hp++ and 1000Nm++(and even sicker machines in production). Teemu’s Mercedes with quite normal STD-setup is hmm…mild I would sayl.. 😛
Bikernieki is a sick place for drifting.
car and skills are sweet

what an inhumane way to treat a car like that!!! i have a car just like that and i think that only the original engine belongs under that certain hood, and the car should be retired from that sort of sport. i hate it when a gas engine is placed under that hood. if you ask me, i think that the guy who owns that car should turn it over to me, because that terrifies me when it drifts around those corners, and that is why i have nightmares.
