thats why i would rather go for the standard SL65
the torque is exactly the same in both the SL65 and the SL65 BS, and the standard SL is already not so fun to drive, I read a review in which the car went sideway on the highway after the driver (a proper one) simply accelerated at the maximum while doing 60 mph.
at that time, they said the SL55 was way more interesting and fun.
maybe the SL65 BS new set up and reduced weight could improve the handling capabilities of the car, but a new, proper, review is necessary.
