    C32 amg?

    I never heard of this Mercedes but I got tangled up with one in the Camaro on the way home from work yesterday. I was merging onto the highway and this guy shoots up the right lane and passes me so I followed him the whole way up to 135MPH and let and him go. I had no idea I was going that fast. I guess he was going to just keep going until his car came off the road. I kept up O.K. but but man, that's a quick little Mercedes. Oh well, not really a kill on my behalf but...

    To those righteous, it was the Holiday and there was no traffic, I mean NOBODY on the highway.

    350hp/340trq supercharged 3.2 liter v6 3valves per cylinder. They are on the low end of AMG engines. The new black series 63 amg is limited through trq management at 740trq, they said if you were to take the limiter off it would reach 880trq. Lol

    Thanks. I probably shouldn't have been able to catch him unless they weigh more. Isn't the E55 A Supercharged V6 too?

    No, supercharged v8 the e55 amg is atleast, 469hp and 516 trq. The number is usually the liter/cc size of the engine. E55- 5.5 liter, e32, 3.2 liter. But the sl65 is only a 6.0 v12 twin turbo. Strange that it isnt a 6.5 liter v12.

    Oh O.K I got it. I raced an E55 in my Regal at the track a while back. She got tired of me going neck and neck with her so she went on red for this last run.
    I think the new ones are a bit quicker though:

    Was she a AMG? Cause if it doesnt say AMG its usually not that fast.

    I don't remember. It was an E55 though so it had the SC V8. I was told the new E55s can trap around 116MPH in the 1/4.

    Only th AMG e55 is supercharged. The base E55 is just a v8. Only the AMG traps 116mph.

    It was an AMG. For some reason it wasn't trapping what it should.

    1/4 in 13.5 or a little quicker, Trapping around 106-108 if it was the 350 horse older model. I pulled the shit out of one in my Dyno Tune/Exhaust/Intake LS2 GTO from 0-100. Decent match for a stock LS1 though, they are very fast for how heavy they are.
