    <b>there are many of you who doesn't understand my point , and other that do.
    When i say its the best car in the world i really mean it..there's no other car in the market COMBINES ALLTOGETHER ALL THIS CHARACTERISTICS: -folding hard top..ITS FAST!! VERY FAST !!! FASTER THAN AN M3 OR A Z8,even a marranello ITS VERY VERY PRETTY, IT HAS THE MOST AMAZING ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS EVER TO BE FOUND IN A CAR, for exemple the new brake control and others and others...not to mention that the inside is better than a limousine with the massaging , body heating seats and all the great stuff...
    compare it to modena's , Z8's and lexus's for exemple you will notice the differemce, don't compare it to a MCLAREN F1, you can't its silly!!!
    the mclaren might be faster but it isn't nearly confortable, not to mention that's she's not a roadster, and ooh good i almost forgot the price....
    When i say its the best car in the world, i mean the best car that everyone can have, for only 140000$ you won't find anything like it....and if you do, please give me an exemple and fulfill my knowledge, i would be really glad

    and thank you

    Hey Idiot, the Modena, Marranello, the 996 Turbo, probably every TVR beats this in every way possible to compare a car. Its a pretty crappy car actually, its not even that great for the class its in. Wow, its faster than the four seater M3, but not much faster. I hate to tell you, but this thing sucks.

    Oh great argument, you're stupid. How do you know that he can't afford it, you don't, and if he had this much money why would he buy this piece? Why wouldn't he get a 911 turbo? Or a TVR? Or an M3, which isn't actually much slower, and it can seat four.

  2. Im saying that U CANT afford it. Its an amazing car, so just accept it. You say that its a piece of shit! i cant believe that. I think your just jealous (that its better then many other cars).

    Yeah, and "the best car in the world" is just your opinion. No, not all mercs suck. The CL definetly does sucks though, it sucks hard core.

    I don't like Mercedes very much because I have my youth and driving fast is fun. I really don't give a rats ass if my seat is giving me a massage. Maybe that will be one of my priorities when I'm like 65 or something, but right now I would rather have a sports car with a real transmission.

    Angus<!-- Signature -->
     
  8. By the way about the transmission stuff, i DON't think that the SL55 has a normal automatic transmission, i think it has a sequential gear box with gear changing on the steering weel, just like in F1..
    So how can't it be a sporty car?
    even the C32 or the SLK32, they might have automatic transmision,but it's the Speedshift 5-speed automatic transmission, combining the advantages of an automatic transmission with the dynamic immediateness of a standard transmission. anyway...

     
  9. Angisio_66 is a dumb ass bull-shitter.
    The only arguments you seem to pull out are, there are faster cars that are way cheaper, and ....'who needs that luxuary anyway' !!

    TVRs have a nice inside, nice leather, but they're not luxuarious what are you talking about. these cars weigh about 1 ton. They're not gonna put any extra luxuary stuff on it, it's a #$%#ing sports car. TVR beats Ferrari, porsche, BMW, mercedes.... what's your point !!
    They are meant to and they do a great job doing it !!

    The SL accelerates in 4.4 s with its 500bhp !!
    faster then a 360 (4.5), Z8 (4.7), DB7 (5.1). Now the Turbo is a COUPE not a convertible.
    THe SL accelerates faster the most cars out there
    (Can reach 300km/h) and 0-100 under 5 sec. the WHOLE world has been saying how awesome looking it is. It is very luxurious. It can be used everydays. It's a convertible with a retractable hard-top. Now how many ROADSTERS are as good as this !!
    If it had the 4-seater option like the older on it would be awesome but it's already one of the best out there. and in it's range is definitly untouchable !!<!-- Signature -->

    So you just proved my Point that all TVR's are better!

    You quoted "TVR beats Ferrari, porsche, BMW, mercedes.... what's your point !!" Well that is exactly my point, the SL 55 AMG isn't the best car in the world. You just completely proved my point while trying to argue it. By the way, an exclamation (!) comes directly after the word, not a space after. What grade are you in? 2?

    0-60 times are important yes, but they aren't everything. For instance, the 360 modena is faster than the SL 55 AMG after 0-60 in everyway.

    Your point wasn't TVRs are better. of course they are better. But they are PURE sports cars. the 360 modena isn't faster then the SL after 60mph, because the SL accelerates faster then the Murcielago (to reach high-speed). You need to grow up too, i put an ! point where the #$%# i want to. And i'm a Senior thank you not a 2nd grader.
    The SL is the best in its class and there's nothing you can do about it :p name one car that is better then the SL (in it's range)<!-- Signature -->
     
  12. i wanna know cause he did say hes "young and likes driving fast." What car it is that he actually drives. Unless your cars quicker, I really don't want to hear you whinge about how "its a shit car"

    K, what day could you drive a SL 55 AMG and not a 360 spyder? I couldn't imagine a situation where you couldn't. Why don't you go check a track site and see which one is faster, don't just guess.

    look, your not going to take your 360 to go shopping, how will you park, speed bumps, etc.... Now i'm talking about europe because in america roads are huge, etc.... but here in europe some streets are really not that wide. Now your 360 can be used to for long distances but the noise of the engine will get to your head sooner or later, and it's not that confortable. THe SL can do all of this with no probs
    "you go check a track site and see which one is faster, don't just guess." why are you bringing in track times ? i said already street wise the SL is a little quicker in MOST ways then the Modena.
    Do you have a lick to a track site ?? because i don't, seems you don't know either so why talk about it !<!-- Signature -->
     
  14. The temperamental nature of Ferrari's is pretty well documented. I would never use a 360 Modena or Spider for everyday use (well, maybe I might, resale value be damned!). In this regard, the SL far excels over the Ferrari.

    In terms of speed, consider that the SL55 is a mere 3 seconds behind the 360 Modena and 5 seconds behind the 550 Maranello at the Nurburgring, which is a long-ass track. I'd be surprised if the soft-top versions of these cars can maintain that kind of edge over the SL. Maybe on a super-short, twisty track the Ferrari's might have an advantage.

    Oh, your gonna have me banned eh?! That sounds like the talk of a defeated man, (or woman in your case). "I swear i'ma do something to your childish piece of sh1t !!" OHHHH!! I'm scared now.

    Are you like 80 or something? The noise of the engine will get your head? Man, who cares if you gunning it down the autobahn.

    Any day you could drive the SL 55 AMG, you could drive the 550, or probably the 360. The ground clearance on the SL 500 is 4.5 inches, it would probably be lower on the SL 55 AMG, while the ground clearance on the 550 is 4 inches. Thats so small a difference you would never even notice it.

  17. For sure it isn't the best, but it's very complete. It doesn't handle like real sports cars, this car is more like a luxury roadster. But I think there was no need (except for marketing reasons) for this car existing, because the SL500's engine suits the car phylosophy better than this one (smooter, more quiet). And this engine, although good, it's certainly not the best in the world, even with supercharger doesn't have a very good specific output (power to displacement ratio)

    I don't care how old or young you are, seems like you'v never been inside a ferrari, the noise WILL get to your head after a couple of hours, i'm talking about the 360 here !!
    I wanted to do something about ur ass, because it seems your veery disrespectful to ppl, insulting them for no reasons what-so-ever when all we do is talk about cars, what's the point !!
    Maybe you haven't noticed but ppl are jelous when they see a brand new, red 360 pull over next to them. Thieves-wise, your car will last only a couple of months if you drive it everydays. The 360 is freakin' wide, there are some places where you wont be able to go <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
    ground clearance: 360 modena 4.2
    500 SL 4.5

    there is a difference, but i guess you are right...not that much <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
    Oh well, i'm tired of getting mad at ppl.....

  19. Man, do you honestly think that that many Ferraris get stolen as compared to Mercedes? I highly doubt that. But if you can find some facts or evidence that prove otherwise I'll believe you. And can you find anywhere the ground clearance for the SL 55 AMG? I can't, I would assume thought that it would be lower than that of a SL 500, so the ground clearance thing doesn't matter.

    Its impossible to discuss with BMW nutters. CL is ripoff, CLK is a pile of junk? MB has many cars that BMW cant compete with... its too hard for them to face that. And they allways state the fact that most Beemers have faster 0-60. Well BMW and MB are going for different markets. BMW for younger sportier image, MB for a tad older, comfy and status oriented ppl. Remember the E36 3series? Yes it ended up being a gangsta ride. Most E36s I see has wings, mufflers, eyebrows and digusting wheels. The E46 will prolly end this way too.

    Now take the '94 C-class. People will not look at you in disrespect if you drive one of those.

    Nomatter how many times you try to say that MB sucks, you still know that in the whole world, Mercedes is known to be a CLASSY brand. And BMW has never been THAT classy.

    First of all, I have never seen any riced up E36s, second of all, in every rap video you see there are a bunch of gansters riding around in there shitty CL and SL with 20' rims and they've been lowered. Second of all, most of the M cars are faster than their AMG counterparts in everything, not just 0-60 times, not all, but most. Third of all, I've gone for rides in Mercedes and BMWs, and the difference in class in is nothing at all, both use the same leather, features and everything. Forth of all, I say that the CL sucks because its so expensive and it does not perform well, and its a coupe. So if its a coupe it can't be that luxurious if you have to fold the seats down to get in the back.

    Angus<!-- Signature -->
     
  22. Ya I don't really think you could quite compare this to a new Ferrari of Lambo, but i'm sure it'll be a true wonder to drive.

    I test drove the new SL500 and its amazing, not to mention how handy a hard-top convertable is. I'm really looking foreward to when this beast comes out.

    Just as a lil note, i think anyone who tries to steal/scrath or spit on someone's car should be given the death penalty (no reason for them to pollute the gene pool).

    the seats fold electrically <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">.
    the point of a coupe is that it's not a sedan, thus having onl 2 doors. The CL is a proof that coupes can be luxurious.
    the CLK is also more luxurious then the 3-series <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
    he CL is as luxurious as the S-class, using the same technology, inside quality, and options (gismos)
    People that have money (rappers) do 'pimp out benzes' because they can, i personnally like a CL in black + tinted wiondows on 19-inch AMG wheels. Ever seen one ?
    well it does look A LOT better then a modified BMW.
    how many lowered BMW, with huge rear-wing, modified interior, etc... i see.
    there's about 20 around the block, i'll go down take pics of them if you want to.

    the SL can be compared with Porsches and ferraris, considering its as fast <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->
     

  24. Oh? The CLK is more luxiourious than the 3 series? Thanks! Thats good information considering they're in direct competetion with each other and their prices match dollar for dollar. No no no, all of that isn't true. Oh, captain dumbass Gizmo thinks that the pimped out CL looks better than the pimped out BMW, well I trust your opinion.

  25. Angisio you're really boring sometimes, and you're pissing me off too...Everyone who knows about cars knows that mercedes-benz is on top, and by that BMWs are not bad and crappy cars. On the contrary, BMWs are on the top also. BUT MERCEDES IS SLIGHTLY BETER. IT's KNOWN IT'S THE FACT, YOU'll have to accept it.
    Despite that mercedes cars are more expensive than bmws, in 2001 mercedes sold approximatively 1 200 000 PASSENGER CARS, while bmw sold 900 000. that's a difference of 300 000 cars!!! I think this fact shows what company is better. So please get a life. More of that, all major automotive technologies where introduced in a Mercedes car (series i mean) : Airbag, ABS, ESP, ABC, EBC, fuel injection, folding hard top, active suspension was first introduced in the 70's on a citroen and i t didn't work well, and mercedes was the first to re-introduce it succefuly on the S class in 1997. Every single gadget in the car was introduced in a mercedes! remember the new S class 4 years ago? now you can look up in the new E, SL, ANd clk.!!!
    I've drove a 1998 CLK 320 and a 2000 bmw 330 coupé, and belive the CLK is better, it's more confortable, performance is quite the same and the material used in the two cars is not the same at all. the 330 is awesome but still the CLK is better, and now that the new CLk arrived there's no way you can say that the 3 series are better. I have a convertible 300 CE-24 from 1994, 8 years old car, and it's still in very good shape, and when i park it next to a 325 cabrio from 1996, it still covers it...
    Bmw has 2 cars that are better than any of its counterpart at mercedes and those are the M3 and the X5. The M5 was better than the E-55 , but the new E55 is coming in 3 months and it's way ahead of the M5, go check some magazine and you will see.


    GOd!! If you don't accept what i'm saying don't reply cuz you're really a child and you never wanna admit that mercedes is a gr8 car manufacturer, and i don't blame you, that's what all stupid fans do, they consider all other cars as crappy , while fans who knowns something about cars don't (generally thos are mercedes-benz fans)

    And that's all..please don't reply angisio
