Nothing compares against the CL65AMG and SL65AMG. There is not sedan version yet planed. Using Maybach's V12 and coupling it with bigger turbos and intercooler the AMG 65 series provides upwards of 738 Torque and 634BHP. These numbers would take the SL65 into mid 3 seconds 0-60 and quarter mile in high 11's .
So there is no chance any bmw is currently in a position to fight with BENZ on the straight line performence. The only way I see it posibble: if bmw use force inducution in the new 5.5 V10 or take the displacement to 8.1 L.
PS: EVEN in the last C&D issue thier long term test SL600 trumped many super cars on the stats. 0-60=3.6 secs and 1/4mile in 11.9 secs. That is faster than GT2, GT3, straddle, Viper, current ZO6, Gallardo and many other exotics.
damn 8.1L would be insane, thats like a heavy duty industrial use chevrolet
gas mpg: 3 (city) 16 (highway)
i think the S class and SL class own the 7 series engines
but the 3 and the 5 own the E and the C
not sure if the z4 owns the SLK
i love comparing them.. botttom line is that volkswagen has no place in germany
