I raced an M3 SMG my freind just got, from a second gear roll on the highway.
He got the jump on me (or went WOT first) and took half a car right away, by the end of second he had almost a car length on me.. In 3rd gear I started pulling back slowly, and in 4th gear at about 110mph I got right next to him and even pulled ahead alittle to about 120mph!
Not so bad for a stock turbo car; In his defense he had a passenger and I didn't, plus the driver weighed about 250lbs. alone. But still, it's an M3 on the highway so i felt good about it
sidestory, there was also an SLK32 AMG with minor mods in the mix.. making about 330+RWHP out of a SOHC supercharged V6. As you can imagine it was FAST! Last time I raced him he beat me by school bus lengths
