    Not only in terms of fuel efficiency for high powered V12s perhaps, but close in performance as well;)

    Ferrari 550 Maranello
    5.5L NA V12
    [email protected]
    427lbs of torque at 5000RPM
    3726lbs weight
    8.3MPG average fuel economy
    0-60 in 4.1-4.5 sec

    Mercedes S600
    5.5L TT V12
    493hp @ 5000RPM
    590 lbs of torque from 1,800-3,500RPM
    4600lbs weight
    15.4MPG average fuel economy
    0-60 in 4.3-4.6sec

    so basically a big ass german sedan thats 900 heavier is cheaper, eats half as much gas, is almost as fast if not as fast, and has more tuning potential.


    once again we are talking about almost a limo here. :o

    mercedes: luxury sports car
    ferrari: classic rare sport car

    big difference. how you can compare the 2 is beyond me. Anybody who can afford either doesn't give a shit about MPG

    Talking about gas mileage with a Ferrari :wtf: I'm not thinking they care about filling up a tank more if they can afford the Ferrari :dunno:

    its not just about MPG people.. its just how fucking crazy MB is to build a car like the s600...

    cmon, twin turbo v12 in a luxury sedan that can run neck to neck with a ferrari flagship (well not on the track, perhaps, but on the street at least)

    I'd rather have the AMG SL55. . but that's just me :dunno:
    I'd feel comfortable driving it all the time.

    the SL55 is nice and amazingly fast but you cannot beat the pimp factor of a Ferrari. Last time I saw a 360 on the road, I followed it for 8 miles gawking at.

    Well, that and trying to get it to race. :)

    its a completely different engine, dumbfuck :slap:

    its like comparing a bmw 3.0 to hondas 2.0 from an s2000

    ferraris V12 is a windup toy made for a sports car... MB engine is a detuned maybach engine that makes over 550hp and over 600lbs of torque in a still luxury form. ITS A LUXURY CAR ENGINE with plenty of grunt...

    the cl65/s65 series will have 600 or more hp and over 700 lbs of torque.. THATS A FUCKING SPORTS ENGINE :slap: so how about you shut the fuck up now? :wavey: thanks for playing!

    We have two 360s in town here, and I followed the one owned by the older guy (surgeon at local hospital). . . followed him around campus for awhile. . hehe he can't drive very well. . I just wanted to listen to it :yum:

    but honestly. . I HATE the pimp factor. . I'd hate to have all those people staring at me.

    You are a moron. You are missing the point of the arguement. I said the Ferrari is better for the same reasons you pointed out. Its a NA high revving motor that puts out the same power as the Benz.

    Now quit trying to act tough. The whole point of your thread is shock value anyway. Look at me, I am different; I like Benz more than Ferrari. Wow you are so cool.

    BTW, Ferrari > Mercedes in pretty much every performance category so I still dont understand the point of this thread.

    If its about what is a better daily driver or something, then you might have a point.
