SLR is 6 years older and still didn't submit to the faster car. Really shows what a machine the SLR is.

THE SL65 Black came almost 10 yrs old after the first 2003 SLR so u really cant compare them u could only compare it to the 2002 SL55 / 2003 SL65 ..... but theyre still like a baby SLR or Poor'Mans'SLR
