Drive them both and make up your mind then.

Barring that, each car has positive, and negative points. So take whichever has enough positive aspects for yourself.

The SLK is cheaper.
It is also simpler, less electronics that might go wrong.
It has less power and is slower, but not by much.
The interior has less leather, but strikes a good balance (in my opinion) for looks, use and feel.
The SLK has a more 'extreme' look, but it's no MB flagship car (like the SL is).
It might be a bit more nippy around corners.
Could be cheaper to insure and tax.

etc... etc...

(the new 400hp model is speculated to arrive end of 2006... wait for that if you can, just might blow the socks off an SL55, who knows).

Do you really think they will make an SLK that will outgun an SL? Sort of shooting themselves in the foot? SL owners might be less than happy.

Good sales pitch: It's slower, twice the price, not as nippy around corners. Might appeal to the roadster buyer who needs more trunk space.

woooooo... money is not the issue here?

you should really consider the enzo or the paganni. Ford GT's quite nice too. You may have to wait abit for the SLR but i guess a little more money can shorten the waiting time? Of course ferraris may be a little boring but since money is not an issue maybe you should get yourself the 430. Saleen S7 if you're going for raw power and torque. so many choices.... since money is not an issue? wad? SLK55? SL55?

It's just speculation. But the SL is more then just about power. The interior is all leather, you have more gadjets, it's more of a status symbol too.

Plus they've got the new SL coming out in a year or two's time. Perhaps with a 700hp SL69. Once again, just speculation. The current SLK already out beats the older model SL anyway...

Jack,

I did not know you had a brother. I thought you only had a sister. Your Dad wants you to get a car that won't break him, sinc his show is going off MTV. [:D]

Anyway good luck on your choice-SL would be nice with bat plates
