The M6 is a car to have
Daniel Alexander Soutar Feb 15, 2013
I think the M6 looks better, but the AMG has a more rounded repertoire of abilities, is more useable, and that engine... The M6 feels soulless in comparison.
Jacob Burford Feb 08, 2013
The problem with SL65 is the SLS! I could not buy a SL65 over that!
Jacob Burford Feb 08, 2013
I personally prefer the 911 Carrera S and Jag XKR-S over both of these, but they are still sweet car! I'd take the M6 between the two!
Tobias Mersinger Feb 08, 2013
Then call me insane. I'd take a SL65 over a SLS.
Ashton Summers Feb 08, 2013
The only reason you would buy an SL 65 is so you can say you spent way too much money on an SL.
Tyler Tarbox Feb 08, 2013
I never understood why the SL65 was more expensive than an SLS. You'd have to be insane to take an SL65 over an SLS
Cindy Ngo Feb 08, 2013
I Thought it was the M6
Cindy Ngo Feb 08, 2013
The SL63 AMG Is the winner?
Ashton Summers Feb 08, 2013
In terms of out right speed, the 65 is the fastest, But not enough to warrant the $50k premium. The biggest thing one would notice with the V-12 is the smoothness and monster amounts of Torque, that the V8 can't make.
Sam Hansen Feb 08, 2013
The 65 would destroy the M6
Tn Ng Feb 08, 2013
Yah, but the 65 has a V12.
Tobias Mersinger Feb 08, 2013
The fastest SL is still the AMG65, or am I wrong?!
Clinton Burger Feb 09, 2013
Used to love this car but even with the new front it is catching a bit of age
Jacob Burford Feb 08, 2013
M-Power at its finest!
Derrick McCarthy Feb 08, 2013
I like these very much, they went nice and subtle I think. Well, compared to the m3 with the busy front end with its lines and scoops. No doubt I'd buy one if I could but I just think this looks better cause its cleaner.
Jordan Nishida Feb 08, 2013
Beautiful.
Mohammed Suhail Jamil Feb 08, 2013
This car is probably what perfection looks like!! Amazing car and so beautiful. It's simply jaw-dropping to look at. Definitely the car I'd take!! The new SL is strange looking, prefer previous gen.
Patrick Joseph Feb 08, 2013
Justin you mad? It's new how is it getting old. You think it's an e92 I bet.
Stephen Tyler Learn Feb 08, 2013
This is the only good looking car BMW makes these days
Joel Pascual Feb 08, 2013
Sooo much better looking than that Mercedes.
Tyler Tarbox Feb 08, 2013
Didn't much car for the last generation M6 but this new one is epic
Mark Fei Ling Feb 08, 2013
Yeah, 6series is compete with e coupe.
Bala Uncc Feb 08, 2013
You are right Ashton
Ashton Summers Feb 08, 2013
BMW doesn't make a car that competes with the CL Mercedes.
Matt Piccolo Feb 08, 2013
Beautiful
Amer Tawil Feb 08, 2013
Why wouldnt they compare the m6 with the cl63?
Justin Johnson Feb 08, 2013
This car is getting old as heck
Bala Uncc Feb 08, 2013
SL for me
Tn Ng Feb 08, 2013
I would take this over the SL.
Trey Villarreal Feb 08, 2013
The front is like a a pretty girls face
Ghaith AL-sharari Feb 08, 2013
Damn ! That m6 is so beautiful in that color
Pablo Herasme Feb 08, 2013
This car is just good
Adam Thomson Feb 08, 2013
The front is way better than the old M6!

Love the SL, But the front is absolutely horrible. Ill pick the older SL Amg over M6 Any day!
Lucas Raggio Feb 08, 2013
I don't like the new way the sl and the slk look
Carlton Salmon Feb 08, 2013
I'd still love to own a E39 M5 one day...
Zaire Wilkins Feb 08, 2013
There is no legendary M power lol that cheesey V8 they have in the M5/M6 arent close to the E39 or E60
Ryan Patrick Clauson Feb 08, 2013
AMG sounds monstrous, but never a fan of Mercedes, I've experienced some mechanical problems with them, I love BMW for understanding replacement for displacement and can't go wrong with legendary M power
Tino Domingue Feb 08, 2013
I wish I could live in the SL's interior, cuz it looks so nice!
Carlton Salmon Feb 08, 2013
I prefer my modified E24 M6 over the new car, lovely as the new car is. It may have nearly 300 bhp more than mine but it also weighs a whopping 400 kgs more! Had my car over 20 years and I'd never sell it.
Zaire Wilkins Feb 08, 2013
Ummm the M6 died along time ago.
Zeus Mocha Feb 08, 2013
M6 all day
Ryan Faber Feb 08, 2013
I love both cars but this merc is for an older crowd IMO and becuase of my age I would have to go with the m6. ask me again when im 50.
Ryan Spencer Feb 08, 2013
Couldn't agree more about the looks of re SL. Really disappointing.
Vito Portanova Feb 08, 2013
BMW ///M6 for me
Ashton Summers Feb 08, 2013
Hard choice. I like the way the BMW looks over the Merc, but would probably take the Merc instead, might go out on a limb to say that merc is better built.
Jay Kolvenbag Feb 08, 2013
SL because it has so much gadgets and stuff and it has a really good sound instead of the fake sound in the bmw that plays trough the speakers
Mark Fei Ling Feb 08, 2013
M6 vs SL63, a car specific for track and corner vs. gentelman's cruiser . It's like Luxus SC430 vs. G37, but Mercedes wins, and offer u more than just a sports car.
Dennis Choong Feb 08, 2013
I wouldn't consider these 2 direct competitors. The SL is in a market all on its own unless BMW comes out with a Z6
Paul Gladman Feb 08, 2013
love this matchup here. i'll take the M6
Jose Carlos Feb 08, 2013
M6 for me please.
David Parenti Feb 08, 2013
I'm not gonna let looks get in the way of performance. I'm a function>form kinda guy. I'm going with the Mercedes. That thing sounds nasty disgusting. Makes ridiculous power.
Rico Turner Feb 08, 2013
M6 all day, Mercedes ruined the SL's styling...that said, the AMG engine is a monster.
Jacob Lerklint Feb 08, 2013
I love chris harris, he's a really good motor journalist!
Tin Nguyen Feb 08, 2013
M6 looks way better. M6 for me all day.
Nick Schnee Feb 08, 2013
Probably the only thing I ever disagreed with Harris about are the SL's looks. I think it's pretty hot actually...
Carlos Gallego Rodriguez Feb 08, 2013
The BMW looks soo much better. I love that car
Belal Karam Feb 08, 2013
جميله جدادط
Mohammed Suhail Jamil Feb 08, 2013
The M6 and M6GC probably best looking cars on the planet?? Jaw-dropping beautiful!!
Carlton Salmon Feb 08, 2013
Great shot of this gorgeous car.
Ryan Faber Feb 08, 2013
it doesn't get much better than this.
Adam Thomson Feb 08, 2013
German cars these days.... Oh god im in love!
Jacob Burford Feb 08, 2013
Not as good looking as M6 or a lot of other cars for the money!
Jordan Nishida Feb 08, 2013
The only good thing about this car is the engine made by AMG.
Jordan Nishida Feb 08, 2013
M6 is better.
Wyatt Smith Feb 08, 2013
I agree 100% with Tobias, in pictures it's down right ugly in my opinion, but when you actually see it in real life...it's breath taking, that being said, I love the new m6 as well
Vinny Coppola Feb 08, 2013
When this car came out last year even magazines were saying that the styling is way off....I always liked Mercedes but in this contest I think I would take the M6
Tobias Mersinger Feb 08, 2013
This thing IRL is so awesome. Pics don't do it any justice...
Matt Piccolo Feb 08, 2013
BMW for me, srry
Justin Johnson Feb 08, 2013
This is getting long in the tooth too
Bala Uncc Feb 08, 2013
Awesome! This is sexier than M6
Haoliang Li Feb 08, 2013
The headlights looks like alien's eyes...
Mark Fei Ling Feb 08, 2013
I see this one and old SL63 park side by side at manhattan dealer ship, the old one feel really old compare this one if they park together.
Tyler Wallace Feb 08, 2013
I don't like these haven't since the 90s the SL73 with the 7.3 V12 same engine that pagani came to Benz asking for
Sam Hansen Feb 08, 2013
This is better looking than the M6 IMO
Tn Ng Feb 08, 2013
Yah same here, last gen is better, something about the headlights is little awkward, does'nt look agressive.
Vinny Coppola Feb 08, 2013
I like the last generation a lot better. I like the back end of these but the front is way off...
Tobias Mersinger Feb 08, 2013
This is the best looking SL in a loooong time. It's way more appealing to me than the SLS and even the SLR...
Adam Thomson Feb 08, 2013
Aggresive front!
Oscar Galvan Feb 08, 2013
I may agree with you I'm not really sure
Tevaun Morgan Feb 08, 2013
This looks good and all but I prefer the last generation look better...
Clinton Burger Feb 09, 2013
Mark you should write their advertisements
Bala Uncc Feb 08, 2013
Looks very good
Mark Fei Ling Feb 08, 2013
Beauty is not just skin deep, that's Mercedes
