I would pick the SL55, just cause its more than a super charged car, it turns better, its just better than the SL600 and 65 AMG...

but ...if i had to spend one on a brand new 2006 SL55, i much rather take additional 10k and buy myself a SL65 AMG lightly used, those things drop in price like there was no bottom, a 2006 SL65 is available for 135k, about the price of a SL55 + small change with few thousand miles..

now thats a deal..

since the 65 AMG was not really all that on the track, they should have dropped in an AWD system in it along with a little more power to be really really different, 65 AMG has nothing special in it for 50k price diff over the SL55, its just the greedy mercedes trying to rip uneducated buyers..

it kinda depends on if you are the cruising type of guy or the racing adrenalin rush type of guy to me the sl is just the ultimate crusier(barring the slr of course) so i pick the sl600
but here in india i think an sl500 would be just fine
