Both cars push 493HP however the V12 Turbo has 590lbs torque while the S55 has 516lbs. Iíve driven both and the S55 is a COMEPLETELY different beast. Also the AMG with have a better resale value at the end although neither cars value will be high at all. As soon as the 2007 body style releases its AMG model the old models will see a big drop. MBZ does a HORIBLE job at retaining value.

We here have a 1997 S500 BB Value $8000(Bought new for 102k), a 2006 S500 AMG BB value $60000 (Bought new for 96K) and a 2007 S550 BB Value 75K (Bought new $121k). THEY DO NOT RETAIN VALUE and thatís why youíre getting a 100k-120k car for 50k. Plus they are a dime a dozen, who wants what everyone else got?
