There's no doubt the SL65 AMG is over the top. This thing goes above and beyond the already incredible SL63 AMG and straight into Audi R8 and Lamborghini Gallardo territory (in price and even performance). If you're looking for that well performing large comfort coupe, then stick to the standard SL. The SLG65 AMG is for the serious driver who respects the performance virtues of such a fine machine.
With a zero to 60 mph time of 4.2 seconds, the SL65 AMG has proven its ability to tackle some of the fastest road cars in the world. Just its general exterior appearance screams "look at me and how much better and faster I am than whatever it is you're driving." There's not much to fault the SLG65 AMG for except its price. But when you think about it, the thing needs to be uber expensive. Why? It wouldn't be a world class supercar if it wasn't.
