    Luke, you better check your stats, the SLS BS lapped Laguna Seca just 4/10ths slower than the MP4, I would call that pretty close.

    I will take the SLS BS and its tuning potential over the MP4. 4/10ths of a second is nothing and that was with the same driver Randy Probst. SLS BS will most likely hold its value more than the MP4 as well. I am not taking anything away from it, it is an amazing car but for you guys to say AMG offers nothing that will compete is just silly. I have $185k in my C BS and what it would do to any MP4 on a road course would be embarassing. SLS BS also turned quicker lap than the GTR Black Edition and Porsche GT3 4.0

    I'll take the MP4. Hopefully we can do a comparison next year.

    In all honesty, no AMG has held its value. Not even the SLR. They all tumble like rocks. The SLS BS has the best chance of any AMG produced thus far and deservedly so.

    I didn't say AMG doesn't offer anything that compares/competes. I simply said the MP4 is awesome and after checking it out I'm in love with it.

    I really, really, really, would not advise picking on an MP4 on a road course even one that is bone stock. Embarrassing it would not be keep in mind it is a mid-engine 3180 pound twin turbo dual clutch V8 car with the most sophisticated suspension and traction control systems ever put into a vehicle.

    Have you checked the C BS used market lately? Aero package cars are selling for over MSRP.

    What in the world are you talking about??? The SLS BS ran a 1:35.0 and the MP4 ran a 1:34.6 at Laguna Seca with Randy Probst driving both cars. Thats about two car lengths. Want me to post videos of my C BS raping a couple MP4's at Road America to the tune of about 3 seconds per lap? Or how about the one I raped at shift sector with the C?

    Why do you have to wait til next year, if they have one just go buy it.

    If you are beating an MP4 it is the driver and also strictly due to power. Equal power or the MP4 with even less it will always win as it has the superior chassis, suspension, transmission, aerodynamics, and weight. You can't beat physics. That doesn't mean there is anything wrong with your car.

    That would be nice but I'm just a poor kid who needs to sell his supercharged built motor M3 first before buying a McLaren.

    Sure, why not.

    Let's make it positive for everyone. I always try to emphasize positive over negative as this forum is about positive car enthusiast interaction ultimately.
