gto vs SL AMG

ok first off on not sure what the numbers where but it was the little SL AMG car 2 seater. anyway guy is riding my ass for about 1/2 a mile and finally the highway opens up he gets up next to me and give me the thumbs up. I beep three times 45mph roll and i was gone wasnt much of a race. shut it down at 120 and was ahead by 7-8 cars lol when the guy drove by me again he looked liek he was crying ha i love beating those over priced sport cars.

Here's some info on the SL. If it was a SL55 AMG they come with a supercharged V8 making 493 hp & 516tq but is a pig weighing 4400+lbs but still pull off a 13.0 @ around 110mph which makes it a good race for a stockish GTO. The newer SL63 AMG makes 518hp 465tq and they also have the SL65 AMG bi-tubo V12 which makes 604hp 738tq and is all done makeing power before 5k rpm lol. Almost done lol they also have a SL65 AMG Black Series which looks like a beast and makes 661hp and I belive the tq is the same as the regular SL65.

LS2+Boost=584rwhp (671.6bhp) lol

Here is the visuals of what euthanasia is asking:

SL 55


SL 63


SL 65 Biturbo V12


It had to be one of those three, could you remember which one because if you smoked the SL55, it really isn't that Godly, the SL63, yeah, pretty fast and the SL65 is one that would be worth bragging....

I know, the SL65 V10 Biturbo runs a 11.9 quarter from what I've been reading.... Kinda the supercar of its class.

I wouldn't mind having the SL55 at all because I drove one before and man! It was pretty quick. Felt like a luxurious corvette to tell you the truth.... Can't imagine how the SL 65 feels like?? Drove the SL 63 and it was even faster just like I had expected. I guess this is what you pay for at 80K new out the door....

Yea...if you can beat an AMG of pretty much any year, you're saying something.

I would definitely like one of those as apposed to like a BMW. They are such overpriced pieces of shit. I worked at a dealer for about a year and I cant believe how much people were paying to not only buy them, but to maintain them. Just an oil change is like 120 bucks! Not to mention all the problems they had. People were in a rental more than there own brand new car. I was not impressed at all with the interior or power from those. The interior has looked the same for like 15 years (except the 740, that iTouch system was pretty bad ass). Outside hasn't changed much either. Sorry, I'm rambling, lol.

M3's and M5's are a different story though
