The Brabus SL is much heavier than this. This is an SL that's been put on a diet, has been turned into a coupe for structural benefits, and has recieved massive tuning work. The Brabus hardly compares.

And that face? Nobody would want that to be charging down their rearview mirrors in fear of being eaten alive. I think the oversized air damn/brake ducts work better on this than they did for the CLK63 AMG Black Series.
i agree with everything you've said

Something tells me that they could've found other places to lose weight though. 4000lbs is still heavy.

The CLK black pulls off the look much better, IMO.

I think it is a very impressive machine, but for the cash I'd still much rather have a lambo or a GT2.

And the funny thing is that the Nissan GT-R will still be faster because we all know it's the fastest car on the planet

It'll most likely rape the SLR if I do say so myself.

At the Dallas auto show recently MB had a 2009 SL600 on display, and I must say, it was not a particularly attractive car. The front end ("Nose" if you will) looks bulky and ungainly. The wheels were hideous (although I bet the AMG has much cooler ones). Basically, the "new" SL is merely a facelifted version of the 03-08 SL. The interior is practically identical, save some cosmetic upgrades, and the exterior (to me anyway) looks like a 2008 SL with a cheap aftermarket body kit.

The non-AMG SL's aren't that attractive imo. They're incohesive in design.

You're right. Usually AMGs (M's and RS models too) should be moving the performance/design forward to the next level. Instead for the SL it looks like they started with really powerfull, aggressively styled SL's that were stripped back to be tame and badges as non-AMG models.

Okay it's not that bad, but its the only way I can explain it. I think that opinion applies more to models like the 5 series. It looks strange without the Msport kit or being an M5.

That stupid 5-speed automatic slush box needs to go. Had that in my E55 and my C320 and it was far inferior to the ZF 6-speed in the E9X

I agree.^

Their 5spd auto is pretty subpar in relative to modern standards, but I think this one has upgraded software and I'm sure they've tweaked it here and there. I don't think they would want to botch up a car like this with an inferior tranny. The car has so much accessible torque that there really isn't a need for more than 5 speeds as is.

225k... is that USD? If so, I'd say that's a really low estimate.
