For some reason the S65 AMG was healthier than the SL65 AMG. Also, the S65 AMG was faster than the tuned S600 with around 560 RWHP.

S65 AMG was not too far from the Kelleners M5. I am not sure, have not watched the videos yet.

Didnt know u had a tuned S600 there also he should have been right there with the 65's if not faster, nice, must have been a healthy S65, i doubt it was because he turned his mirrors in

Yeah, I noticed that earlier on the picture, and not at the event, smart move. On the M5s the will go UP inside of in :p

It was very hot, over 31 degrees Celsius and maybe that chipped S600 suffered more than the factory spec S65 AMG

I like to see a CL out there since you guys are running up top it has the best drag coefficient out of the bunch, carrera GT is a beast up top

Naming

Gustav.....just a humble tip here.....

Perhaps you should consider naming this series:

Supercar Shootout in Sweden

You will get so many more internet hits. Nobody really understands what Airfield Runs are unless you have already seen the videos.....this will help you sell more DVDs.
