So guys what do you prefer?? An SL 55 AMG or a Stock SL 600 ??

The SL55 AMG has the foll specs: V8, Supercharged, 492 bhp, 250 kph, 4.6s * $120,500


The SL600 has the foll specs : V12, Bi-Turbo, 500 bhp, 250 kph, 4.6s * $126,250



The top speed on both the cars is electronically limited.

I'm not sure on this one. I like my cars without limiters.. But if i have to choose one should be the one making more noise.. oh yeah baby

SL600?? hmm

Nah would stick to the AMG since I've ridden in one

Cheers

SL 55 - sounds wicked, SL65 -might consider but too nose heavy, so the pundits say

SL55 AMG for me. Looks better, has similar power, will be lighter and more fun to drive.

V12,
Those are US specs, For us indians the EU specs which make both cars @ 500 Bhp
While the Sl600 has a torque of 590 lb-ft @ 1800 - 3500Rpm, and the SL55 is 516 lb-ft @ 2,750 - 4,000 rpm

SL600
