well i was at the store the other day picking up some shit for my dad in his mercedes when i noticed a modded 540 pulling out of the lot. He had exhaust and rims and a dinan badge so he must of had some other work done. Well i get up next to him doing about 40 and step on it. I got him by surprise so i gained about a 2 car lead and stuck it. We played cat and mouse for a little while until we came up on an empty street he slowed down to about 25 and got next to me, we punched simultaniously and it was a great race. By about 90 i had only pulled about half a car. I think from a stop he would of gotten me off the line but once that benz hits about 60 mph it really starts pulling the bmw in.

it was a good race

Benz don't shine in stop light race, but once does things going on the highway they like a freight train...

That's strange...

I kept up with S55 AMG in my 540...yes on the highway once moving.

Beat SL500 on a regular basis...

S500 will be my wife's next car!

s55 isn't much faster then the s500. And you raced a new sl500?

or the older one? The older ones were dogs

Old ones ofcourse. I have not come accross the new ones yet. But the engines are the same aren't they?

i think a bit diff, but still in the 6's for 0-60 which sucks for a car thats at least a bill.

Well, turns out I finally got to race a NEW SL500. We were all cruising about 110mph and took off...I would have rear ended the SL. The SL could not pull, when I got in front, I was walking away slowly. The 330i actually hung with us pretty well. The SL is a beautiful car, but lots of bark and no bite.

i think they have about 50 more horsepower. It's not the same motor, but fundamentally it is.


It's about .4 faster in the quarter at most.

I drive a 540i...

New SL will be a beast, I agree with you 100% and can't wait to see one. Test drove E55 today and was a bit dissapointed. Let's just say if I ever see one on the road I'm gonna give him a hell of a run.

something is wrong..... the e55 is 4.6 0-60 last time i read? it's at least as fast as the m5 i am sure. but of course, i still like the 540i sport more.

and yes, the sl500 is "slow". it's not that fast at all. however the sl55 is ridiculously fast. even 911 turbo stands no chance with it. i have video with sl55 gaining over 911 turbo at 140+mph and afterwards the 911 driver said he was pushing everything already

I don't know about 4.6 but the E55 is still very fast. 1st gear was very torquey but moving and gunning it wasn't impressive at all. I will still lose, no doubt but I don't think he will be able to spank me.

Love the new SL though.

Hi fellaz:beerchug:

I've seen a 0-60 time of 5.5 for the E55 so avg a 5 sec car? They said the VSA kicks in ALL THE TIME, even when off.

302 hp in the SL but still weighs a bunch. Nice car. SL 55 is a BEAST, PERIOD.
