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.
I drive this car every day and enjoy each and every minute of it! The power is unlike any other vehicle I have ever driven. Mercedes definiteley delivered this time with AMG! I love my SL65 and I highly recomend it.
I have had the good fortune to own many very fast toys, but this car tops them all, including my 360 Ferrari. It is comfortable, quiet, elegant and ergonomically almost perfect. However, once you trounce the pedal it transforms itself into a raging beast. Cars going at freeway speeds are passed as if they were standing still and the acceleration keeps building and building. Its a little scary and I have track experience. In seconds you are at go to jail without stopping speed. The ultimate power trip.
