Just back from some evening fun.

Here is the setup:

Stock SL55 vs. my stock ( ofcourse! ) M5.

Both cars at 110 km/h constant speed, M5 in P500sport and S5, SL55 in manual gearbox mode. Only the driver in both cars.

Communication between the cars on mobile - at the count of three, full throttle all the way to M5´s topspeed limiter ( which kicks in at 270 km/h on the speedo ).

4 runs was made...................110 km/h -> 270 km/h..................... :M5rev:

RESULT: M5 was 6 - 10 CAR LENGHTS ahead of the SL55!!!!!!!!! :1:

The M5 was, without any doubt, quicker than the SL55. Pulling away all the time! :flag:

A very reliable witness was behind us all the time - member klas!

This car is one h*** of a monster :viking:

Good to know I wasnt getting crazy!

Nice to hear, the M5 is a monster in all speeds :) cidair, next time try S6 mode :1:
Yes, I thought you needed some support here, Gustav!

So thats why klas and I improvized this little test :haha:

You are definitely not crazy, just an enthusiast like all of us M5 lovers.

:eek: :eek: Wow, what a monster. Finally got it past the break in? A daytime video of the race would probably exhaust all of the excuses the MB guys have... :D
:cheers:

Hey, go over to the E55 board at mbworld and post these results. They already have over 30 pages on the most recent testing. Sooner or later, after these guys hear enough tests, they'll admit defeat!

i hope your witness didn't accidently pass the SL55 as he was trying to keep up, and missed the race...

Gustav, have you read the new AUTOMOBIL?

There is a very thorough test of the M5 vs E55 vs 997.

It´s done by a guy, whose been studying wehicle dynamics for 5 yeras at the university in Stockholm.

A lot of graphs and figures, explaining the benefits of the M5´s drivetrain and chassis.

Would be nice with a scan ( sorry, mine is broken ) of all the graphs!

But I thought the car didn't have enough torque.. ouich

*Just kidding*

Great result and more evidence these engines just might be underrated a bit :)

I think the on-the-road performance of the M5 will blow the AMGs away. Tough to beat forced-induction enhancements for straight-line acceleration, and a torque convertor makes power delivery an on/off phenomenon, but there is NO WAY the overall package will deliver like the M5. Nice to toast the current generation AMGs along the way! :M5launch:
