An SL550 costs about 5 times what a Ford Focus costs. Is it really that much better than the Focus? It's not 5 times faster, doesn't handle five times better, doesn't stop five times shorter....You pay $300k for a Black because you can. Just like you pay the money for a Ferrari or a Rolls or a Bugatti. Is the Black worth it? Sure, because you can piss on the shoes of an SL550 owner and get away with it.
