I think I have an oppurtunity to try something here...

Holy crap, everyone know who Kleemann is? If not, Kleemann is a danish company that specializes in tuning Mercedes.

I recently discovered that their US headquarters is in Colorado Springs. That's not too far from where I live. I am planning on drafting my resume and a letter to see if a possible internship is possible. I figure a business internship might be useful in getting me into the automotive industry.

Just a little taste of their E55S8...
0-60 in 3.8
5-60 in 3.9
1/4 miles in 12.2 @117mph.

To put in retrospective:
-faster than the Ferrari Challenge Stradale(4.0, 12.4)
-faster than Porsche 911 GT3 (4.0, 12.3)
-Faster to 60 than Viper (3.9)
-Faster than Lambo Murcielago in 1/4 mile (12.6)
-5-60mph faster than Saleen s7 (5.1)
-only .2 seconds behind Porsche Carrera GT in 5-60mph.

Do you have a link for their company website? My boyfriend has a 2005 SL600 on the way and we were curious what they have to offer. I have never heard of the company. Good luck on the job!
