    CR finally did it...SL55 vs. 996 Turbo comparison

    CR already posted a german version of the testdrive and I'll try to do a short translation as soon as possible.

    Short conclusion: the SL55 is performance-wise not even close to the GT2 and can't cope with the 996 Turbo either.
    The tested SL55 in Nardo surely had substantially more power.

    Thanks RC,i need this translations....for a my friend...

    Ha, this confirms my experience...

    ... on the A3. As I posted earlier, when I met a SL55 on the Autobahn several weeks ago, the SL accelerated more or less as qucikly as my Modena - but not quicker. So probably this was although the driver knew how to use kick-down

    Thanks ZZoba.....

    Re: CR finally did it...SL55 vs. 996 Turbo comparison

    RC , would that mean that AMS and Mercedes work hand in hand ?

    I have always suspected something like that from AMS ..but my german isnt that good so i would love if you could give me your opinion ! thanks

    Re: I read an article in Autocar,

    They also were disappointed with the result of the SL55 compare to the Nardo one.

    Mercedes told Autocar Magazine that "the unrestricted topspeed version will unleash more torque thru out the rev range."

    I find it difficult to believe, how can a unrestricted SL55 be that much faster????

    Re: thanks zz..

    How can I to auto translate in an article? Do I need a software?

    Re: translation

    Thanks, zzboba. This will do for the moment.

    I'll post a full translation at the weekend...have a lot of work to do right now.

    Re: thanks zz..

    cheers; zzboba

    Re: I read an article in Autocar,

    The unrestricted would release more torque??
    That is plain bs from Mercedes, they are trying to give stupid explanation for what is becoming a common phenomenon, to give the magazines some "enhanced" models when presenting a new high performance car.
    I suspect that Mercedes is not the only company doing this...

    thanks zz.., translation site is very cool!
