    Heard from a source that the SL65 will be a...

    replacement for the SL55 rather than an edition to the exsisting AMG line up. . Not what I persoanally believe, just heard it from a source and thought I'd share. This also gives strength to the rumor of the V-12 replacements for the V-8 kompressor engines. ??? Only time will tell???

    If that is the case then SL55 owners are NOT gonna be happy with residuals!

    ...and that's exactly the typical problem of DC- and AMG-owners.

    This source is definetely wrong.

    The SL65 (IF it comes, there still are a few "problems" to sort out because it might hurt SLR sales) will not replace the SL55 but the SL55 is rumored to get a power upgrade by latest 2006. Rumors indicate 540-560 HP.
    I also heard that as soon as the 7G speedbox is available with the 1200 Nm torque limit, the power of the x65 product line might even go up to 650 HP and more.
    The SLR might get a (free?) power upgrade by then.

    Right now there are so many rumors regarding AMG's future floating around, it is difficult to say. As far as I heard, DC wants to take more control of AMG, so I'm not sure this is a good or a bad thing.

    RC, the 65 engine when producing 1200Nm of torque, produces over 700bhp. So if the tranny can handle the torque, will AMG unleash 700bhp 65 models? Or is that stupid no more power than SLR rule still in place?
