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.
True. And I definitely thing the M6 is a faster and better car. I also personally like the handling of a BMW better, but ill be honest, the faster I drove, it seemed like the steering and suspension just kept getting tighter and more precise. Definitely a joy to drive at high speeds. Comfortable too... I was driving with a massage, heat and neck warmer the whole time. :P
