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.

Actually according to Top Gear, the CL65 does 0-62 in 4.4 sec, so still you can't compare it with mighty porsche 911 turbo.
