2009 SL65 AMG Black Series - got widebody?



Who says Mercedes makes boring, overweight luxury cars?

Car and driver estimates under 3.8 seconds to 60 for this widebody lass.

I do see the appeal of this car, but:

car and driver got 3.9 to 60 with a c63

Also, my buddy has a sl55 and he can't really explore its handling because it weighs a ton and with so much torque once the rear goes its gone. so that seems boring. also, no stickshift option. also boring. if i had that much money, i'm sure there'd be more fun options outhere.

Well it does still weigh 4000 lbs. But I'm sure a v12 twin turbo has to have a certain amount of mass.

Also, to clarify, I would die a happy man if I owned this car. I just think like the GT-R it's a bit heavy.
