2001 Mercedes Benz C320
When Butch looked at Sundance and wondered "Who ARE those guys?",
he could have very easily been talking about the folks at Mercedes.
First they create "entry" level C Class models, then they make them
so well that once you've "entered", you are hooked.
The 2001 C320 is a thoroughbred with genetic strengths directly from its
parental S Class. These traits are not just limited to the sleek exterior look,
for under its shiney epidermus are new suspension enhancements, unibody
construction, and special crush zone structures. Also new to the C320
is also a 215-hp 3.2-liter V6, replacing last years inline 4s and 6s.
If you never thought there would be a Mercedes Benz in your life,
it is time to think again, slip behind the wheel of the C320, and prepare
to be impressed. Very impressed.
