Are you kidding? The SVT contour has 200hp and damn near 1000 less lbs than a TL or CL. With the right driver, they can hang pretty well with a stock CL / TL.

My bad - I thought they were lighter than that even.

Hmm - and one mag quoted them at 7.9 0-60. DOG!

I take it back. :D

However, I raced one on the street with my stock CLS that hung on pretty well.

BTW - the stock weight is 3068 lbs for the SVT contour. ;)

the 2000 svt contour weighs in at 3126lbs... that's only 384lbs less than the cl-s w/auto and 320lbs less than the cl-s 6 speed.

at that weight, the contour would need an extra 31hp and an extra 37 ft-lbs of torque just to match the cl-s' power to weight ratios.

but you are right, the 1998 and 1999 svt contours were 3068 lbs.

the 1999 and 2000 svt contours got the 200hp motor, though.
Aah - thanks for the clarification. The site I looked at only listed the 99. :thumbsup:
