My July 4th Weekend: Driving a Mercedes SL500 to The Briars on Lake Simcoe

Merc SL500

We all need some down-time, and this past July 4th weekend I booked a 3-day weekend at The Briars (on Lake Simcoe) and I got there in style driving a Mercedes SL500 from Affinity Luxury Cars.

I must admit I am a fan of toys and this 7 speed “transformer” of a sports car met no equal this weekend … it was surely the way to go.

Seriously, every time I pushed the button to drop the top or raise it, I felt like I was on the set of a Transformer movie. Mercedes engineers rock!

Here’s a quick video I shot. And yes, that’s me squealing like Tigger when I pressed that gas pedal … OMG, that car can move!
