M5 vs E55
M5 (RPI scoops+Hartge Cat-back =540hp)
E55 (Brabus Cat-Back=490hp)
I Made MANY runs on several days.I wanted to reach a conclusion on which
beast is the fastest !
and the conclusion i reached IS:
1) below 120mph(200km/h) :they are pretty much EVEN (who ever gets the lead
first keeps it)
2)above 120mph(200km/h) :the M5 clearly has an advantage and ALWAYS
starts pulling away slowly but constantly,especially after engaging 6th
gear.Hp and gearing advantage in the M5 begin to show.
and by the way, i love BOTH cars so i'm not biased to any of them,that's
why i made more than 20 runs on several days to eliminate any errors.
hope you enjoy the video!
2003 E55 AMG DYNO (STOCK MOTOR) Valvoline Dyno Challenge Pleasanton Night Shift - The Earth Spinner
This is the epic Dyno
video of The Godfather's 2003 E55 AMG. This was done September 20th, 2008
at Night Shift Pleasanton on the Valvoline Team Dyno-Go mobile Dynojet dynamometer. The car is
on 19" Wheels (Work VS-XX) and did the Dyno pull in 3rd gear. Dyno mode was turned on and as a
result ESP and ABS were shut off.
The result is nothing short of amazing thanks to the work of AMG and
Mercedes-Benz: 410WHP and 449WTQ, which translates to 500HP and 550FT/TQ.
In short, this E55 spins the Earth backwards with each blip of the
throttle, thus dubbed "The Earth Spinner."
