    they cost roughly the same, so assuming you couldnt really afford the 65 AMG, would you rather have the 600 or 55 models?

    i'd go for the 600's myself

    500 > 600
    600 is slightly (!!!!!!) faster but the balance is fucked becuase of the oversized engine. for posers.

    55 ftw

    ight thought it was NA. difficult decision, having a v12 is always baller, but having an amg is better too. amg prolly gots nicer rims on the whip though

    if it's your only car, the AMG for sure

    if you have a sports car on the side, or any 2nd vehicle that is more of a performance car, then the 600 for the ultimate comfort factor

    that all really matters on the car. i would pick the s600 because it already is a big heavy car and more or less would work at a straight line and the sl55 because i would rather have a more balanced so i could run with some other cars just cuz it would be fun. cl's i am not the biggest fan of them but i would probly go with the 55 for the same reason as the sl.

    i dunno to broad of a comparision in my mind ;)

    600 just cuz v12s are cool :)

    they do have amg 65, twin turbo v12 tuned to make ridiculous power

    they had to limit the power on the engines for the transmissions sake

    they had to limit torque, not power AFAIK.

    it's a incredible machine the SL65!!!
