S55, not a fan of turbos, even though they are some of the more nicely tuned ones. But the distiguishing rumble of the AMG exhaust, is what wins me. But if I had the money, and I couldn't decide. Eh, what the heck, buy them both.[:D]

You can't go wrong with either. The S55 will have better throttle response and better stock brakes. The S600 is smoother, more powerful, and will handily out-accelerate the S55 above 60 mph. It's also easier to get 50-60HP out of the S600, and it doesn't void your warranty to do so.

I vote For the S600.

I vote for the S600, because once you get the S55 AMG, there is so little of a price difference between the two, it makes sense to get the S600. My DH really wants to get his hands on an S600. I really could care less, but I would prefer the S600 if given a choice.

I'd go with the AMG model.

I'd go with the AMG model. "One man, one engine." I just love the exclusivity of AMG cars.

If you want the 600 engine, get a Maybach.

You're pulling the same amount of hp, and the wheels are different, and I THINK the interior is a little different. Now is that really worth the extra 22 grand? I know a guy who's pulling 0-60 in his s600 in 3.1. All MAINLY becuase of 1 mod. Something from Renntech, I dont remember.

Just faced the same choice -

I just bought a S55 this week. The dealer also had a S600 they were heavily discounting to nearly the same price as the S55. I picked the S55 because it seemed a bit more fun to drive.... read "younger". The S600 may be great when I get older - my Dad had one.
