You're totally lost have you seen the 911 Twin Turbo S perf stats?? 0-60 2.5 sec 1/4 mi 11 flat & in the 10's outta the box in stock form w/good DA & little better 60' are possible & will out handle the new Merc GT in the twisty's all day long sooo WTH are you fappn' about it being made to be a 911 FIGHTER?? stock for stock the 911S destroys it in every perf test period.. Guarantee those 3 mods from Renntech & ADV1 cost $30-$40k out the door lol.. You don't know dik stfup already.. & yes a brand new twin turbo superlight double clutch lightening fast shifting offering from MB should be able to handily beat out accelerate a 10+ yr old relic weighing 5k lbs IN EVERY PERF TEST PERIOD.. It doesn't even come close & needs $30k-$40k in aftermarket mods to barely stand in its shadow, thro $40k @ 10 yr old sl65 & guess what it'll run?? lol..How old are you kid? I don't normally like to educate kids on the net but you seem to be COMPLETELY lost with out somebody telling about how shit works in the car industry.
MB built the GT to be a 911 fighter, and as we all know ( I would think even you would knew this) 911's are all about balance and handling at the track and canyons. So when MB built this car straight line performance was the very LAST thing on their minds as that is what EVERY OTHER AMG is known for. It is not better at the SINGLE performance aspect that a SL65 was good at. And that is what you want to point out LOL...If somebody was as naive as you they would make the argument of the SL65 being trash because it doesn't handle like a C6 Z06, but they don't because you are the only one that doesn't seem to get it.
The GT is 9/10th the better car over the SL65 you are talking about (as well it should be) for less money and it is just these 2-3 mods away for being equal in the straight line aspect. So would you rather have the 9/10th car or the 1/10th car??? Exactly, Sit down shut your mouth and learn before you type dumb shit. You say these cars should be faster than their predecessors yet you are to dumb to realize that the GT isn't a predecessor to the SL class. It is in a class of it's own. When the next Gen GT comes out and it is slower in a straight line and on the track then your posts in this thread would make since.
The fact you're such a blowhard you fail to understand inmop & ton of others it doesn't matter what the new MB GT was intended to replace (baby SLS) it costs $150k has latest tech thru out carbon ceramic brakes, CF driveshaft etc etc it should be a significant improvement over a 10+ yr old 5k lb BASE MODEL SL65 but it sadly isn't...
