Did anyone see the road test on the Mercedes E55 AMG in C&D this month?! That car is a beast. I am not into Mercedes at all but this I could love.
469 hp, 516 lb-ft of torque
1/4 mile in 12.7@117mph
top speed: 155mph (governor limited)
It's acceleration from 100 to 150 is almost linear. According to the divers, it is STILL accelerating at 155mph. Just for fun, doing a little interpolation, if a stock WRX hits the 1/4 mile around 14.0sec at 96mph, the Mercedes would already be doing 122mph!
