    Money can't buy you friends, but you do get a better class of enemy.

    LOL? What kind of a comparison is this supposed to be?

    I'd pick a M5.

    SL65 looks the best, is the fastest, and overall best

    I remember reading, that the CL is faster than the SL.
    The choice would be CL vs SL.
    As i said before (in another thread) IMO the V12 fits into the CL and the V8 fits into the SL.

    CL for me.

    How is the cl faster than the sl. They have exactly the same engine could be to do with the cl being heavier therefore sticking to the road better and being able to deliver more power onto the road. The 65 amg is pointless ans the 55 amg is not much slower

    The SL's exhaust is more restrictive, meaning that it produces slightly less power and whatnot than the S and CL.

    Of the three I think the S65 is the most sensible option.
    Thanks for all the fish

    Err google? Mercedes' official website?

    It isn't hard to find things on the internet, you could at least make an effort, rather than expecting to be hand-fed every crumb of information.

    I think Mercedes's gone too further with this V12, at least regarding the SL...the SL55 AMG is an optimum car for sunday out-door trip with the girlfriend and has enough power and torque to be funny even in a track-day.But I think that this engine is not that wrong on the S-Class...even if I think the respectable business man that can afford a 211.000 euros Limo must either be always in a hurry or love tracks (with a 2+ tons car?I really doubt it...
