Mercedes S63 AMG vs classic 450SEL

You did read that right, by the way. The S63 is capable of 0-100kph in a scant 4.4secs, and - with the appropriate limiter-extend option ticked - some 300kph. We won't be getting the four-wheel-drive variant (0-100kph in a much more acceptable four seconds), Merc quoting the cost-versus-sales benefit of redesigning the AWD system to convert to right-hand drive or some such paltry excuse, but it's probably enough for most.
