One of the more beautiful new cars. The slightly upward sloping, curvy "backside" reminds of Porsche 911 a little bit. But its a longer car, of course.

Well done, Mercedes!

AMGs and Ms have surprisingly gotten slower in the (ungoverned) top speed department. The SL55 and SL63 could reach 208mph, the SL600 (although not technically AMG) could do 211mph, the SL65 AMG could do 216mph all back in the 2000s.

It's even worse that the new SL63 makes more power than advertised like all modern Benzes. With 650-700 actual hp is what's required to reach the 208mph of the "old" SL55/63.

The "old" M6 had a theoretical 211 mph top end (202-205 mph in real life). Today, an M8 barely even does 200 without the limiter.

There was a time when between the model distinctions were completely differentiated engines and capacities. I.e. SL55 was a supercharged V8 and the SL65 was a twin turbocharged V12.

Comparing the specifications between the new ones it's simply, atleast on the engine side a simple ECU remap. I'm sure it's not quite that simple, but yes it is.

This car looks like someone took the old SL R231 and photoshopped the CLA or E front on it. Honestly, it looks so weird.

Also it's quite unfortunate they couldn't put in the M177 from the E63s

BMW should really consider stuffing their S58 i6 into their Z4, or a detuned version of their S63.
