RE: New SL55 and SL65
I saw an SL65/Renntech black sedan today!! After some research, this is what I found at Automobile magazine:
"...possibly the most ridiculous Mercedes ever made, it uses the same 6.0 litre, 604-hp, 738-lb-ft twin turbo V-12 found in the SL and CL65, allowing the massive S-class luxury sedan to reach 60 mph in 4.2 frightening seconds of wheelspin, blinking ESP lights, and prayer. The S65 began terrorizing American highways in March at a price of $170,000, and it may be fast enough to outrun the screams of small children in the back seat."
The Renntech upgrade-for $12,000 adds 81 hp, for a total of 685 hp!!
