Mercedes AMG 55 v. 600

This seems to be a long standing debate between me and my friends. If you could afford it, which would you choose: a Mercedes 600 or 55AMG. They both have the same horsepower rating (493) and cost about the same. The only difference is that the AMG sports a supercharged V8 whereas the 600 has a dual-turbo'ed V12.

Personally, for me, it depends on the class. That is, I'd rather have the V8 paired with the SL55, but I would like the smoothness of the V12 in the S600. The CL can go either way. Just my opinions, at least.

Discuss.

and then we can add in the new CL/S 65 AMGs if we really want....i know that would be my choice...an S65. but out of ure two choices I would go 600, simply because of its smoothness.

talk about de-railing a thread!

... s600 every day, i think that the body kit on the AMG mercedes are quite, well cheap and i like subtle preformance cues or an understated look, it is just cool to know that your car could waste an M5 or such while looking totally normal!

and a V12 bi-turbo, i mean come on, how many cars have that

Me either! I think it makes much more sense to register for a forum and then NEVER post... Like about 75% of our members.
