And the car is decent, or the times? A 4.2 second 0-60 is pretty crazy for what that car is supposed to put out. Compared to the 650i its ridiculous - I would say this non-AMG SL is almost in M6 territory (ALMOST... but I can't imagine what the SL63/65 can do!)
The 0-60 times are near-M6 due to traction limitations (bout a half second behind); a low 4-second time is expected for a car with its power and weight. A quarter mile spec is a way better indication of how fast a car is, and the SL550 does it in 12.5s @ ~113mph. The M6 does it more than a half second quicker, and just about a full 10mph faster which is pretty damn huge.

That SL is fast as fuck besides this.
