Mercedes Benz ML63 AMG for First Drive -2012

Given adequate social lubricant it’s possible to mate the rough edges of performance with the loving constrictions of magnificence. And as Mercedes-Benz AMG is now demonstrating so handsomely in its third generation ML, the trick can be done with that most difficult of platforms, the sport utility.

Already fast and contented, the 5-passenger mid-size ML has been thoroughly upgraded with improved fuel economy and improvement foremost, but as this is an AMG, with increased performance as well. Thus, the 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V-8 has been replaced with a more fuel-conscious, direct-injected, 4-cam 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8 rated at 525 bhp. This slightly improves ML performance while gaining a third more fuel economy, now rated at 16 mpg combined. That’s still dismal, of course, but in the ML’s nearly six-figure price range saving at the pump is as much societal statement as selling point.

More germane is the higher-boost schedule package option offering 557 bhp and 560 lb.-ft. of torque. So equipped, our test car rocketed away from standing starts, its AMG-tuned 4MATIC all-wheel drive grabbing with cat-on-a-carpet traction. At street speeds the AMG’s 4.7 zero-to-sixty acceleration is truly spectacular, flattening only slightly on the expressway as the SUV’s 5000-lb. mass and wind fighting come in play.

A Dream Within A Dream

by Edgar Allan Poe

 Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow--
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand--
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep--while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

Spring Morning

Please wake up angels right now
Because if you sleep in you will only waste this
Beautiful day away
And spring arrived today at our door finally
But I want to enjoy this dsy you all of you angels
By waking in the
Black Forest here in Germany
And also I would like to go inside of the castle at the Black forest
So we can visit it
