Re: 2004 Mercedes SL600 (supergti)

Decent exterior design
Horrible interior design
Huge performance bang for the buck

Re: 2004 Mercedes SL600 (supergti)

Nice car, would rather get the SL55......more of a sporty car. Has the shift buttons on the steering wheel and sounds amazing.
Plus you have the typical heavy depreciation a V12 Benz takes. Not that resale values are the first thing on the mind of a typical person who buys a new SL600.
But the V12 makes scary power and can be easily modded if one wishes.
Nice car for those with deep pockets.

Using the term "bang for the buck" implies that it is an affordable car. Sorry, but 136 grand is not affordable.

I second that. When I hear bang for th buck I think fox-body Mustang or turbo rx-7. I could buy a very decent house for that money and an awesome grill both of which would give me more pleasure. PLease don't flame and say we are talking cars not houses.

That cool, but $136,000 would'nt buy you a shack in sunny Cali but the stand of living here is also one of the highest in the nation whichs sucks.

Mercedes SL600 - $126,970.00 and 493hp = $257 per hp.
Plenty of power - not much bang for the buck though.
WRX STI - $31,120.00 and 300hp = $104 per hp.

Corvette Z06 - $52,985 and 405hp = $130
I'll spend the extra $26 and take the Z06 over the STi

Re: 2004 Mercedes SL600 (k_)

This car target market is not for the twenty something. Its for the slighty older guy who finances allow latitude for very expensive toys and may have lost some interest in power slides and oversteer but remain a strong appetite for longitudinal g loading.

Don't forget the 590lb of torque too.

0-60 in 3.6 secs? What do the SL65 and SLR pull? They can't be much faster.

No kidding. I was rather impressed by the SL600s performance numbers when I read the article. The SLR and SL65 can only be a tiny bit faster, one would think.
