The S65 AMG The M5 will really be toast

Wouldn't a more appropriate designation be S60 AMG

0-200 km/h 13,3 s

Ahhh...

The 2.6 km circuit is an exact replica of the short track at the Hockenheimring which developers have long regarded as the touchstone for judging a vehicle's handling, over/understeer characteristics and traction

It will be interesting to see its times on Hockenheims small citcuit then. My guess is its too heavy...

It's depressing to me that they put all that engineering into the engine, then had to electronically limit the torque for the sake of other components (or for safety because the tires can't grip?).

My question is: How much more than 1000Nm would the thing put out with stronger tranny & driveline and a little chiptuning?

1200Nm? 1300?

Now that's what I'm talkin' about!

Those kind of numbers make me forget all about heavy weight, poor handling, and slushbox. Well, almost.

I mean, standing on it from a roll, say, 40kph, would probably light up the tires for 100m!
