    I'm not sure but I think the same is happening to Ferrari...the 360 V8 is faster than the 550 V12.<!-- Signature -->
     
  2. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    I think the new SLR coming in 2003 with 560 hp and 800 Nm torque and 1500 kg weight will be even faster. This is a great car, the best one in its class, but let's still wait for the SLR. <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    Yeah I read that article in Autocar...I think it was EVO in which they did a comparison against the 996 Turbo. It was faster but the Turbo had a faster 0-60 time and better handling. Nonetheless this thing is monstrous.

    Of course Murcielago has a certain "style" and beauty. But still in the long run this faster than the Murcielago, Porsche GT2, Aston Martin V12 Vanquish and Ferrari Maranello 550.

    First off this car slower than all the other cars that you mentioned
    The only one that can compete with them is the SLR
    This car is faster to 300??????????????????

  7. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    V12 I would like to see that!!!! can you post the links for me i think those comparisons are interesting.thank you.
     
  8. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    V12 is correct I baught that particular issue of autocar as well. The SL55 is the second fastest production car in the world next to the Lambo. It is quicker than any prod car from 0-186 MPH. It takes just 32 secs where the lambo comes 2nd at 35 secs. Before anyone says anything just remember PRODUCTION CAR. It's quite unbelievable.
     
  9. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    just one car i have to mention. Ferrari F50 GT. Thank you.

    The V12 is cool but the Aston Martin V8 is faster...<!-- Signature -->
     
  11. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    that was a prototype model that they tested, it clearly stated this fact and the lambo that was brought did not have the full option package so therfore this is a invalid comparison, but i am still impressed with this car, it is a shame however that Mercedes has taken the easy route and decided to use superchargers instead of good old engineering!!!!<!-- Signature -->

  13. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    Mr. OzyF1 do you understand engligh mate? If not please leave this message forums. We said production cars, not bloody one offs or limited production cars. If you think the Ferrari F50 GT is a production car well then good for you. Not other people think so. Get your facts straight mate. For other people who question why mercedes use superchargers. Tell me why not? They make it seem like building a supercharger is a piece of cake. Like they can make it at home themselves. So all these people who try to mercedes down just shut the f up. I'm sick of hearing this bullshit. If it made sense then it's whole different story. Some people even try to say that renowned car mag editors are liars. What is the world comming to?

  15. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    i never said that it was wrong!!!! don'y misquote me please, i think that it is a great idea, i just like the idea of high reving engines, the sounds that those engines produce is just awe inspiring, i mean a Ferrari or Lamborghini V12 at 7500rpm, peace<!-- Signature -->

    yall should look at www.exvitermini.com
    not to burst your bubble but there is a tuned skyline r32gtr,that can do 0-300kph in 13secs flat and there is footage of it doing a 13.72 run,and it is on street tyres and it is everyday drivable.lots of other good movies,too.(mr.nagata doing 194mph,while being chased by 3 t5 volvo police cars on the a1 in england)!!!!!!!!Check it out.

    pfft . . . can't beat my Buick.<!-- Signature -->
     
  19. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    **** your skyline, My '67 tuned Mustang (1540hp) can run 1/4 mile in just 7 sec@205MPH (IHRA record). Remeber, Production car!! no tuned car.
     
  20. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    all i have got to say is that a my pacer, is oh so much faster than this carand it looks better too, but it is stock. I can handle turns at a breath takin g12 mph it is amazing!!!!
     
  21. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    "...0-186 MPH. It takes just 32 secs where the lambo comes 2nd at 35 secs"

    I dont believe the Murciealago needs 35 seconds to 300kph.
    The McLaren F1 takes 23,4, and i dont think the Lambo is so much slower
    the Viper GTS takes 30 seconds to 173mph (287 kph), so the lambo should be faster...

    btw, the McLaren F1 takes 48 seconds to 380kph (234mph) if someone here cares about that..


    and btw guys: It doesnt matter if a car is street LEGAL or not, we talk here about what production cars.
    i hate those people bullshitting "on street legal tires" or "not tuned, but 1500bhp", i wonder what those comments are for<!-- Signature -->
     
  22. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    Can someone tell me the issue no. of this article.

    I'm having trouble believing, Lambo is lighter, more powerful, and the torque difference is minimal, I would have thought that the Lambo would be more aerodynamic also.

    Also about AMG being a 'production' car, I thought they tune Mercedes-Benz production cars. so they are no more a production line than say Koenig is for Ferraris. If this was a MB production car why does it have AMG in the name?

    hope someone can clear this up for me.
     
  23. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    i am probably wrong but i always thought that amg was the mercedes version of BMW m cars
     
  24. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    Any1 who believes this car is faster than a Murcielago should think twice. I like the merc too, its the best performance/luxury car in the world, it beats any Bentley in my book. But when it comes to track performance, come on, if u want this to beat a Murcielago u would have to pump as much money in it than u already paid for it, so to speak <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">.
    Anyways, Mercedes did a great job, this car is hard to beat but if u want to beat it on the strip a Murcielago will surely do just that.
    Peace and PS Ferrari still rules!
