Some fun with my 2008 Mazda 6i 5-Door
Just having a little fun with iMovie and my baby =].
My 2008 Mazda6 i 5-Door with a Cold Air Intake, Bose Sound System (6
Speakers, 2 Tweeters, and a 10" Woofer), iPod Connector, 17" Wheels,
5-Speed Auto-Manual Transmission. I recently installed the sharkfin antenna
and my next project is a set of HID headlights.
By the way, I shot all the driving video in and around my neighborhood and
we have security officers so I could never really go any faster than 40 in the fly by's without
someone calling me in to the guards and the 60MPH run took way longer than
expected. I've got 7.3 seconds out of this car before, but the one on here
was closer to 10.
By the way, here's numbers from a recent quarter-mile drag race.
R/T - .611
60' - 2.516
330 - 7.098
1/8 - 10.819
MPH - 65.13
1000 - 14.166
1/4 - 16.699

Mercedes Benz SLK-class R170 Development
The R170-platform SLK 230 Kompressor was introduced in 1997 for model year
1998 to compete with the Porsche Boxster and BMW Z3. Setting it apart was
its folding hardtop, though its additional weight detracting from the
performance of the 185 hp 2.3 L supercharged I4 engine and automatic
transmission. The SLK was on Car and Driver's Ten Best list for 1997.
A 5-speed manual transmission was added for 1999 along with the 215 hp 3.2
L V6 and 6-speed manual transmission in the 2001 SLK 320.
An AMG model was added in 2001, with a 354 hp (264 kW) supercharged version
of the 3.2 L V6. This SLK 32 AMG was the best-performing SLK ever, and was
a direct rival of the BMW M Roadster and Porsche Boxster S. It is only
offered with automatic transmission. The SLK AMG engine is also hand built.
Not all Mercedes SLKs were built in Bremen, Germany, the SLK 320 being
built in South Africa. The very first R170 Mercedes SLK was completed on
January 29, 1997 and last on April 7, 2004.
