Both the SL600 and the SL55 are total monsters. Aside from the auto trans, I would love to own one. They still are kind of floaty in the twisties, but thats about the only bad thing I could think of. The power both cars produce is beyond insane for such comfortable cars. (The SL55 has a nasty sound as well) Just wait until the SL65 and CL65 come out with a V12 Kompressor motor that makes 603 HP and 738 TQ!!!!! That is going to be for those who weren't fortunate enough to get their hands on the SLR. I guess they would be "Roughin' it?!"
