    Evo vs E55 AMG (LOL)

    Yea right. I'm criusing on Ocean prkway tonight around 7pm. I see a silver benz come flying up behind me. Now when I say flying up behind me I mean it. This guy was tearing A$$!!!. He shot into the left lane and slowed down coming up along side me. Now i'm in the middle lane, he is now in the left lane. My window is down, this guy looked over at me an laughed. He must have been between 40-50? Anyway I laughed too. Just for the hell of it I downshifted into fourth and floored it. I could hear an slight exhaust note from the E55 and then it was all over for me. The E55 was gone left me like I was standing still. I liked getting my A$$ handed to me.

    Ok I'm basically stock still. K&N drop In, boost controller @20psi, Dynoflashed.
    This weekend, full exhaust, fuel pump, HKS Intake, are going in
    I would like to run into this guy again after I install the AMS kit next spring.

    OK yes everyone I didn't think I could even hang with a E55 AMG right now. Just posted because It was amazing the power that car has!

    right around 114mph or so. What is so cool about them is the modability. With exhaust, pulley, and ecu they run solid mid 11's and trap 120mph

    Slight exhaust note? When my dad floors his S55 near me it feels like a freight train has gone by.

    C6 vs E55 would be a good race, but the E55 is still faster in the 1/4mile. The C6 6MT is not as consistant as the automatic in the E55 and therefore will run times anywhere from 12.6-12.8 whereas the E55 will typically run 12.3-12.6
    As far as trapspeed goes, they are similar in that respect as well, but again, the E55 traps about 1 or 2mph higher usually. So no, the new vette cannot take one down.

    E55

    Yeah, its a fast car going straight. Wait next time when you encounter him and then bring him to a curve in the road. See what happens then. ESP is an advantage/disadvantage to that car.

    I had an encounter with an SL65, same outcome. On the turn (wide sweeping circle entering the Fwy), he was behind me the whole way, couldn't pass. After the turn, though, blew past me like I was standing still. (2001 M5 with some mods). Guess the extra 200+ hp, helped him. But didn't help him at all on the turns.

    yeah, the new Z06 will walk the E55 for the most part... but, the new Z06 is said to be relatively maxed out from factory and the E55 will pick up nearly 100whp extra with bolt on's.
