    Boxster S kicking ass versus SLK on TopGear

    A couple of weeks ago, I read that the Boxster S beat the SLK with The Stig behind the wheel on TopGear.
    What I didn't know, was that the Boxster nailed the SLK by FOUR seconds!
    That should end any discussion about the SLK being a serious threat to the Boxster when it comes to handling.
    Aaaah. Don't you just looove being an immature Boxster-geek?

    The SLK350 or the SLK55 AMG? Totally different beasts. I'd bet with the new SLK chassis that the SLK55 would give the Boxster S more of a run for its money, even on a short "handling-biased" track.

    Re: Boxster S kicking ass versus SLK on TopGear

    The SLK has 272 BHP, so that makes it the SLK 350.
    I seriously dont think the 360 bhp SLK 55 AMG would have beaten the Boxster S anyways. The Boxster had a 4 sec lead on the SLK, and I dont think the 90 bhps more and a firmer suspension of the AMG will close the gap.

    Mercedes simply cant make cars that go fast around corners. They tested the 612 bhp SL AMG 65 or was it the CL 65 AMG and it was totally useless. It came in so far behind it's direct market competitors that it was a joke.

    They should stick to comfy GT cruisers, which IMHO the Topgear challenge pointed out too well.

    Sports Car v. Tart Cart. No contest.
