    How can that be so??? Top speed shows 250 kph, but yet for this test it somehow hit 300 kph??? Dumbass. Look at what you post. Ass tickler.
    Thanx, jacek

    You can disable the limited topspeed if you want to. you just have to ask AMG to do it. A magazine said the SL could reach 330kph easily.
    They also said it's faster than the Lambo, F550, Vanquish, Z8...

    You dumbass !
    You'd better read the stats in good mag and not in this site were half the perfs are wrong.<!-- Signature -->

    THATS A STRAIGHT LINE, why does this intire community of car fans rely on straight lines the minute this things has to turn is the moment the Lambo eats its lunch.<!-- Signature -->
     
  5. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    The Mercedes weighs more than the Lamborghini. Torque doesn't matter when it comes to top speed. Torque gets you started horsepower keeps you going. The difference in torque is minimal so they would be able to accelerate off the line at about the same speed. That is if the Lamborghini didn't have AWD, but it does, so the Lambo is faster off the line. Then the Lamborghini weighs a good 400 pounds less than the Mercedes, so the almost 100 hp advantage of the Lamborghini means that it'll go faster. I don't care what some magazine says, its just not possible. They are both great cars, why does everybody have to say that this car is better than that, just enjoy!!!

    i think this thing is just as fast as the lambo....maybe not a better 0to 60 or 0to 100 but its about the same top speed as the lambo! if this can take on the lambo just think what the slr is gunna do!!!
     
  8. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    What is the point of this thread? This topic has already been discussed to death yet some Mercedes fanboi decides to make a post so he can bask in the glory again.

    I think we need to get away from the mentality of faster in a straight line means the car itself is faster overall. I mean, since when did straight line acceleration make a good car? The GT2 comfortably gets beaten by both the Lambo and Merc in a straight line yet it would ring rings around both of them on a racetrack.

    This car is no sports car, it is a very fast yet luxurious GT car.<!-- Signature -->
     
  9. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    It is true that in a straight line to 300km/h the Mercedes is faster. It is true that the lambo would undoubtably beat it on a track as soon as a corner comes into view.

    It is also true that straight line performance isnt very immportant for a supercar.

    It is also, however, true that the Merc is the heaviest car tested there, and is a luxury car with performance, rather then a performance car with luxury.

    The fact that the SL range are produced by mercedes-benz as a grand tourer originally (correct me if i'm wrong please) and yet this version manages to perform on par, or better then a lambo, GT2 etc is undoubtably an amazing feat.

    You cant expect something this heavy ang big to handle like a supercar though....if it did it would be abnormally amazing
     
  10. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    The SL55 is very, very impressive because it's supposed to be a luxury car, yet manage to match or exceed most supercars in speed. Much better value, too.
     
  11. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    Yes, faster than Murcielago to 300. In fact, this car has more torque at just 1500rpm than a BMW M5 does at max, and it has more torque at just 2500rpm than the mighty McLaren F1 at max.
     
  12. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    The guys that are relying on this magazines info are idiots, You are taking the word of 1 magazine, 1 magazine "BIG F*CKING DEAL". This car is garbage in all respects, It may be quick, but at that speed it'll start falling apart. Wait till BMW comes out with the V-10 powered M6, Only then can we talk about these kinds of cars. And comparing this car to the murcielago is garbage because the Lambo they used in that test was a production prototype, And these cars aren't even in the same league. Also if you read that artical more carefully you would have also learned that they believe this car is pushing more than 476hp, they think it's making well over 500hp. This car is nothing compared to the Murcielago, GT2, Maybe the 550, But not the 575MM, Peace out dumbasses
     
  13. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    I'm not going to get into the Murcielago, GT2 and SL55 comparo, cuz these cars are just not in the same league and you definitely can't go based on one magazine test. However, if the SL55 is faster, wow, is about all i can say. I haven't been a big MB fan, i prefer BMW's personally, but this is one hell of a kick ass car. I mean this is incredible. Amazing combination of power and luxury, what more could u want (maybe a 6 speed manual). not that u need it to improve accel or anything lol, it just might increase the fun factor. I'm left in awe of this work of art. excellent combo of art and machine.<!-- Signature -->

    Maybe the SL will get a 6-speed manual after, cuz I've heard that the E55 might get one like the E500. but, I don't know.<!-- Signature -->

    Very impresive car. Last few posts have been quite good. Can't compare this car to a Lambo, but just having a big luxo car which can outperforme a lambo in the straight line accel. is just amazing. think about it. did you ever thing that a fat, heavy, luxo car could beat a lambo and others in accel? can a z8 compete with this thing?

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

    actually in car & driver i read that this car could go over 208 mph, which is faster than the lambo, but there are no tires that can handle a 2-ton car that's goin that fast. so you can say that in a race this could actually beat the lambo.<!-- Signature -->

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

    I love this car but how the hell does it go so fast?Im not sure but i heard that it can hit 208MPH.Thats as fast as the murcielago!I am having a hard time believing that this can get a higher top speed than the murcielago,GT2 ..etc.But im not dissin this car.I love BMW's more tham Benz but this car looks so awesome and its really fast!Can someone plz give me some good links to this car's top speed.
     
  20. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    I just read that this car's speedometer only goes up to 300km/h.I don't think that Benz would put a 300km/h speedometer in a 300km/h + car.Maybe they did,im not sure,but i find that interesting.I'm just making an educated guess on this speedometer thing.
     
  21. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    Well, for ppl who told me not to trust the info on car magazines, I don't know which magazine that you read that says this car sucks. If you hate Mercedes, you probably suck, so shut your ass.

    One magazine tested it and it does 0-300 faster than the new Lambo. All other magazines says this is a superb car with good performance, comfort, and styling (everything u need for a car). Some magazines and sites named this Car of the Year.

    Fact is fact, this car is fast, period. I don't care if it's supercharged, I don't care if it has an automatic. All it matters is that I can sit in this car, turn on the A/C, listen to my favorite CD (hell, watch my favorite DVD movie), getting all comfy, and still kick your ass in your whatever crap.

    Unrestricted top speed is 208mph, how can it go that fast? Maybe because it has more torque than a McLaren F1 anyone?
    But as someone said before, no street tire can handle 208mph on a 4000lb car, so you need some special tires I guess.
     
  22. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    Some ppl (BMW fans) say that wait till the whatever rumored V10 and the 6 series comes out. All I have to say is that, why don't u wait for the Mercedes/McLaren SLR to come out, see if you'll have anything to say then.

    <b>AMG's are bloody awesome, they beat on BMW ( i think) and i know mercs have superchargers and all, but i mean they are a better car obviously. This car is awsome one of my favourites, i do love the C32 AMG though 0-100kph in 4.9sec, AND if you remove the chip and change the gear ratio( mercedes do this for demanding customers) you have a 4sec car under ure right foot. unbelieveable but true, there are a couple of articles on it if you search around, here in Australia we have a couple of mags toa segment ( at the smae time) on it, last year.
    so i mean if this would theoretically work on the SL55 AMG i would love to see it do 0-100kph in around 3.4sec. whether it is possible i do not know, if anyone has read the articles on this subject post it up, i'm quite curious on the subject.
    but the c32 AMG thing 0-100kph in 4-4.2sec can be done, i know cause one of my dads best mates in Germany had it done and he burns 911's so yer rock on benz.

    I love Mercedes but I've to recognize you are an idiot !
    C32 0-60 is more like 5.0 or 4,8 maybe if it's its best but not 4.2.
    And if you change the chip of the SL, you won't get a 3.4 car !!!<!-- Signature -->
     
  24. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    the v12 sl is much slower than the sl55.most AMG come v8.there is no sl600 AMG
     
  25. Re: Faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago to 300!

    It's too early to tell will there be a SL600. They could do it, just like the S-class, with a S55 and a S600 V12. But since this SL55 is a supercharged version of the 5.5L engines, even the V12 won't have such performance, so maybe for the SL, there won't be a SL600 V12.

    But hey, remember there's the SLR still to come, which is going to be in the supercar category with 576 HP V12. And there's also the Maybach engine, a twin turbo V12 with more torque than anything.
