    Yes but the SL600 is to come. Mercedes announced they would produce an SL600 V12 biturbo more powerful than this SL55 aMG
    (source: a french mag : Action auto moto or something like this )

    If the Sl600 is to use a turbocharged V12, then it should be a similar unit used in the Maybach, which generates....oh I don't how much power.

    But in the past, the AMG versions are usually faster than the V12s, so I don't know will this model be the first time that the 600 V12 will be faster.

    if there are any canadians that can tell me where i can buy this magazine up here in toronto i would really apreciate it. what stores is it available in, in the state??? or someone post a site which has this article. im really interested in reading it!

    i just find it amazing that the lambo beats the sl to 100km by 1 second, it also beats the sl to 200km by 2.3 seconds, but somehow the sl beats the lambo to 300km by 1.7 seconds. im not saying its wrong but i find it pretty crazy that the sl comes back to beat the lambo to 300. what i would give to this in action!!

    <b>AMG's are bloody awesome, they beat on BMW ( i think) and i know mercs have superchargers and all, but i mean they are a better car obviously. This car is awsome one of my favourites, i do love the C32 AMG though 0-100kph in 4.9sec, AND if you remove the chip and change the gear ratio( mercedes do this for demanding customers) you have a 4sec car under ure right foot. unbelieveable but true, there are a couple of articles on it if you search around, here in Australia we have a couple of mags toa segment ( at the smae time) on it, last year.
    so i mean if this would theoretically work on the SL55 AMG i would love to see it do 0-100kph in around 3.4sec. whether it is possible i do not know, if anyone has read the articles on this subject post it up, i'm quite curious on the subject.
    but the c32 AMG thing 0-100kph in 4-4.2sec can be done, i know cause one of my dads best mates in Germany had it done and he burns 911's so yer rock on benz.

    I love Mercedes but I've to recognize you are an idiot !
    C32 0-60 is more like 5.0 or 4,8 maybe if it's its best but not 4.2.
    And if you change the chip of the SL, you won't get a 3.4 car !!!</b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->yeah he is an idiot but the c32 can get a 4.4 or 4.5 0 to 60.....Mercedes is sayin it can go 4.8sec and in the US its 4.9 or better like 4.6.....

    AMG is Mercedes' own tuning company. If you enter Mercedes' website, you'll get stats on the AMG versions as well.
    http://www.mercedes.com/e/cars/sl/tech1.htm
    And the only criteria for a production car is that it have to be produced more than a certain number a year (think it's 100).

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA......THAT IS ONE OF THE DUMMBEST THINGS IVE EVER HEARD IN MY LIFE.
     
  9. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    you're the dumbest thing in the world!!!
    IT's true!!! the SL55 is really faster than the murcielago to 300km/h!!!
     
  10. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    I don't get it faster at 300km/h!!!
    Any way Murc is 590 and this 476 I dont think its better than Murc.
     
  11. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    I know the Muracielego is better as a sports car, BUT TO 300, not at 300, from 0 to 300 km/h the SL55 is faster!!

    and the SL55 is 500 HP now!
     
  12. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    it is wierd that without the governor this thing can do about 220 mph before it's tires give out. I think an american magazine did something on this, can't remeber which one. I personally like the murcelago because i'm a sucker for cars like that. The new SL is beautiful though, and i'd probably in the end buy it rather than hording the extra 130 grand to buy the lambo.
     
  13. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    Really? Hmm...honestly, IF I ever have this much money to spend on a car, I'm pretty sure it won't be hard to come up with the extra. According to my sources, the SL55 AMG will do 0-300km/h in 32.5 seconds, and the Murcièlago hits the mark less than 2 seconds later; 34.2 seconds. Since there are VERY FEW places where 300km/h can be legally attained, I see it as a moot point when these cars are put next to each other. Admittedly though...the SL55 is VERY fast, and a bargain, when compared to the Murcièlago.
     
  14. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    Robertt, You're rite. this car's fast shit. my dad owns one.. and its really quick.. scary at times. but seriously speaking.. this car's too silent to be true. compared with a freaking lambo murc that my neighbour owns... this doesn't feel like its at 200km/h like the murc does. seriously.. for driving fun and excitement.. the lambo's better. oh yeah to note, could u nuts pls stop mentioning the F50 for goodness sake? like wad the earlier threads mentioned, we're TALKING Bout production cars.. goodness me. get ur english tuitioned <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>

  16. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    the sl55's top speed is 208 mph ( official statement from AMG), but since no one makes an 18inch road tire for a 4200lb car, its 155mph. you can have the delimiter installed and that ups it to 186 mph ( you cant go beyond the capability of the tire). The Lambo's tops speed is 205 mph. which makes the sl faster
     
  17. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    The acceleration test you are talkin' about has also appeared in Speed (car magazine in my little Czech republic, the source of the test is some english magazine), so here it is: test circuit - Nardo, cars - F550 x 911GT2('02) x Vanquish x SL55AMG(476HP) x Murcielago: 0-100kph (seconds)- 4.7 x 4.0 x 5.6 x 4.6 x 3.6, 0-200kph - 14.6 x 13.1 x 17.4 x 13.7 x 11.4, 0-300kph - 61.2 x 40.9 x 55.0 x 32.5 x 34.2, maximum speed (kph)- 305 x 314 x 315 x 325 x 330. Well, SL55 is really faster. If I have to decide to take SL55 or Murcielago, I'll take them both. SL55 for every day driving and Murcielago is the beast for exciting weekends. Yahoo!!!
