also watch for the S65.. same powerplant, maybe $20k less.. i'm sure there will also be a SL65 variant eventually as well..

Those cars are simply amazing. The CL65 and the S65 would be the ultimate daily drivers. Both are great looking cars with unbelieveable horsepower. Luxury and performance are a great combination that Mercedes really has a grasp on IMO.

and the SRT-10 looks like a Camero SS or Honda S2000. I know what I would rather have my car look like.

just hope the styling of the GTS version is as edgy as the gen 2 GTS. the different models of the bimmers and benzs just don't set themselves apart in my eyes.

They are great sleeper, luxury sedans.
The only thing is that a much better deal is to buy a super-low-mileage CL600 or S600 for $100K and then add a RennTech chip/pulley, and some nice sporty larger wheels and tires. The chip/pulley setup provides the same power as the CL65/S65 for about $4K. :thumb:

To bad about the price, I can think of a few other cars that would come before that one if I had 200g's to drop.
