Hands down, the CL63 takes the cake between the two choices in terms of luxury, sportiness, exhaust grunt (which would be closer to the Masi than the standard V8 on the SL550) and toys/features on the inside.
The CL, has that big body appeal that really makes a statement when you pull up, coupled with the AMG Kit, i think it offers a more aggressive appeal as well.
Don't get me wrong, in the summer time, or if you're in warm climate year round, you're the life of the party in your drop top, but if you get a clean CL63 with the 20 inch AMG wheels, you're good to go.
If you were talking about the CL550 versus the SL550, i would say do the SL, but since you are talking about the Beefy CL63 vs the SL550, GO CL63.
A couple of questions though.. Are you replacing your Masi with this new car, or adding to the stable. Also, what year are you looking at? The 2011 has the most refined look with the LEDs.
