Best GT car you can buy!!!
By MattD on


2005 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL65 AMG 2dr Convertible (6.0L 12cyl Turbo 5A)


This car is simply amazing. From its 604 horsepower to its elegant and civil nature, this car offers it all. If you are looking for an all out performance car you wan to take to the track, the SL65 is not for you. This car is all about the everyday driving experience. The power is nothing short of incredible. The car does have trouble getting off the line cleanly, but its purpose is not to be a dragster. The power is best used for passing, and passing is does. Hanlding is plenty ample but nothing to get all that excited about. Creature comforts, build quality, and techno-gadgets are what you'd expect from a top-of-the-line Mercedes, but the COMAND system can be a bit intimidating at first.

Best Features

6.0L Bi-turbo V12, retractable hardtop, subtle exclusivity (no children's noseprints on the windows like a Ferrari or Lambo), ABC suspension (smooth yet stiffens up in corners w/ virtually no body roll)

Worst Features

Could lose a few pounds, wider rear tires/wheels, less complex COMAND (navigation) system
