IT WAS because he liked his brother-in-law’s Mercedes that former local, Kon Karamitros decided to buy his 2010 Mercedes E63 AMG nine months ago, but as he says, one with more grunt.

Kon said, “It’s a V8 with a 6.3 litre naturally aspirated engine and can go from 0 to 100 in 4.5 seconds.

“It’s black-on-black-on-black, which I love and it has a lot of power and the noise pollution it gives off is intense. That’s why I call it ‘The Black Beast.’

“It has leather AMG interior with electric seats that actually hug you so that you remain still when you are turning corners and has a panoramic sun roof.

“The black front tyres are 20×9 inches 245/35/20 and the rear are 20×10 inches 285/30/20.

“It has heaps of grunt and I love everything about it.”
