R230 body style - pre face lift ie the 4 headlights. thinking of buying one. 604 bhp and 738 lb/ft of torque. not wimpy. 2005 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG - Short Take Road Test - Car Reviews - Car and Driver 2006 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG - Road Test & Review - Automobile Magazine basically this monster does 0-60 in about 3.6 (depending on who does the pedaling), and the 1/4 mile in 11.5-11.9 at nearly 120mph. this is the same or better, than the f430 i have sitting in the garage here in houston. seems adequate to be my daily driver pls give me your thoughts (for those of you wondering why i am not pulling the trigger on the maserati, i cannot find one without issues. suspension bushings, variators, clutch life, etc etc all issues costing thousands have been discovered in my due diligence across several cars. it just seems that out of warranty, these cars are a time bomb).
