See the post right above you. He came to this realization already. :green:4i2fly said:May be someone has already said this to the new owner of the sl600: I challenge you on a track and let's see which car is faster through the bends and under breaking then I believe you will start appreciating your Spider more than the Benz.
I gotta give it to the German's, at least the styling has improved to apeal to the younger crowd. Most SL owners were granmmas and granpas who wanted somthing sporty but didn't realy care about the sport itself. How many SLs do you see getting tracked? I love the looks and its drivability. But, how many thousonds of pounds does it weigh more than a Spider? CASE CLOSED! Enjoy your Benz and let Ferrari be enjoyed by the real enthusiasts.
But just imagine two turbos on a Ferrari 5.7 V-12! HOLY CRAP would that be some serious tire shredding power. :evil: :evil: :evil:Bob348 said:it's not difficult to be fast with a v12 5.7 and twin turbo...
ferrari doesn't need 2 turbos to obtain 500 hp from a 5.7....
No holy wars on Ferrari Forum. Just friendly good old fashion car talk.blkonblk360 said:granted, i can't buy my way into the "enthusiast's" club, but i own the car and i'm trying to get there.
as far as the grandma and grandpa blast on the sl's. it's true. i never would have bought one previously (i'm 40), but the car is fresh.
and yes, the 360 is much lighter. no, i haven't gotten them both out on the track.
looks like i started a virtual holy war!
