    This is from C&D mag. I think they mistyped the hp on the 5.0L V8 engine.

    This is from MB's official website
    E500 5.0L V8 Sedan - rear wheel drive

    Time wise in the 1/4 mile they're going to run about even with a WRX, with a slight edge to the WRX if both drivers are excellent and an edge to the E500 in most other situations since a monkey could get good times with it. From a roll it will pull a stock WRX since I think they trap close to 100mph.

    I am stock and I have had a little encounter with one...5mph roll and I BARELY edged him out. We hit 100 and at that point he gave up. He had a passanger, both mid 40's.

    I would NOT race for money unless you have some meaningful mods...That is just me...A miss shift and its over...

    they don't...for the sedan at least for now. The 4-matic currently is only available for the E320 wagon.

    4-matic is available on a heck of a lot more cars than that, and is certainly available on the E500. In fact all the new ones I've seen have been 4-matic.
