Ferrari F430 vs 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG The body styling of the F430 was
revised from its predecessor, the Ferrari 360, to improve its aerodynamic
efficiency. Although the drag coefficient remained the same, downforce was
greatly enhanced. Despite sharing the the same basic Alcoa Aluminium
chassis, roof line, doors and glass, the car looked significantly different
than the 360. A great deal of Ferrari heritage was included in the exterior
design. At the rear, the Enzo's tail lights and interior vents were added.
The car's name was etched into the Testarossa-styled driver's side mirror.
The large oval openings in the front bumper are reminiscent of Ferrari
racing models from the 60s, specifically the 156 "sharknose" Formula One
car and 250 TR61 Le Mans cars of Phil Hill.
The F430 features a 4.3L V8 petrol engine derived from a shared
Ferrari/Maserati design. This new power plant was a significant departure
for Ferrari, as all previous Ferrari V8s were descendants of the Dino
racing program of the 1950s. This fifty year development cycle came to an
end with the entirely new 4.3L, the architecture of which is expected to
replace the Dino-derived V12 in most other Ferrari cars. The engine's
output specifications are: 490 PS (360 kW; 483 hp) at 8500 rpm and 465 N·m
(343 lb·ft) of torque at 5250 rpm, 80% of which is available below
3500rpm. Despite a 20% increase in displacement, engine weight grew by only
4 kg and engine dimensions were decreased, for easier packaging. The
connecting rods, pistons and crankshaft were all entirely new, while the
four-valve cylinder head, valves and intake trumpets were copied directly
from Formula 1 engines, for ideal volumetric efficiency. The F430 has a top
speed of 196 mph It's five and a half feet long. It weighs 8.8 pounds.
Height of an adult female, weight of a gallon or so of gas—these are the
critical dimensions of the carbon-fiber driveshaft running between the
engine and the rear-mounted transaxle in the new Mercedes SLS AMG. We note
this here because, despite the car's retro-gullwing looks, the SLS is
utterly bleeding edge—both in terms of its technical attributes and what
it represents for Mercedes' in-house tuner. It is not simply a Mercedes
with bigger wheels and a breathed-upon V-8 or V-12. It is, down to its
churning carbon-fiber core, AMG's first dedicated automobile and the very
antithesis of the overly complex and overweight half. The SLS is a serious
super sports car," says AMG chief of development Tobias Moers before taking
a shot at the SLR, a carbon-fiber-bodied car that still managed to weigh in
at 3858 pounds. "Our SLS weighs only 3572 pounds," he says, nearly 300
pounds lighter than the McMerc. Keeping the 182.6-inch-long, two-seat SLS's
mass in check is its entirely aluminum construction (save for that
driveshaft and steel A-pillars), a first for Mercedes-Benz. The aluminum
structure weighs just 531 pounds, Mercedes says.

2014 BMW M235i vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG! - Head 2 Head Ep. 53
Fast, small German cars are back with a vengeance on this episode of Head 2
Head! Join host Jonny Lieberman as he compares and contrasts the
Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG with the brand new BMW M235i. Mercedes and BMW have
had small car rivalries like this in the past, most notably the Benz's 190E
2.3-16 versus Bimmer's E30 M3. Fast forward three decades, and times have
changed. Forget natural aspiration, as turbocharging rules the day. The CLA45's engine is
even mounted sideways in a complete departure from Mercedes' tradition.
Regardless of the details, both cars are fast and fun. So much so that
Jonny feels the need to get racecar driver Randy Pobst involved in the
decision-making process. In the end, this one proves to be the closest H2H
comparison yet. Watch and enjoy!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

2012 BMW 3 vs Mercedes S-Class Drag Race
OMG the time has come. 2012 drag race between 2006 BMW 325i and 2002
Mercedes-Benz S-Class 320L CDI. In the video the beamer wins but the
reality is that we ran several tests and both cars are equal. At the
begining the beamer starts first ... then benz is catching up - 470 Nm ...
than the benz is chatching up again - it has higher max speed in the 1st
gear) and then they are even :) They go head to head rest of the way.
