SL vs 650 at Track Test: 2013 Mercedes SL550 vs BMW 650i

As far as comparison tests go, this is a good one. Guys at Inside Line pitch two of the hottest GT/Convertible cars currently available – 2013 Mercedes SL550 and BMW 650i Convertible – against each other on the test track to compare figures. This test can help many people who are wondering between these two to make a better decision. After all, both these cars cost well over 100 grand.

In this video not only you learn about the performance of these cars, you also get a good look at them side by side.

The SL in this test is powered by a twin-turbo V8 engine developing 430 hp. It’s plenty fast in the straight line, but in the corners it’s still a big old Merc. The BMW also has a twin-turbo V8, but it has to make do with only 400. It does handle like a BMW though, which is the best kind you can get. Neither of them are very pretty though, but at the least the BMW doesn’t look like an alien!
