    Ferrari 360 F1 vs 600S Mercedes

    I just read the lastest issue of AUTOCAR magazine where they tested a Ferrari 360 F1 against the new V12 twin turbo Mercedes 600S. Strange comparison but interesting none-the-less.

    The times for the 360 were an amazingly quick... 0-60 mph in 4.2 and the 1/4 mile time of 11.7 @ 117 mph The 600S posted times of 0-60 in 4.6 and 1/4 mile of 12.9 @ 114 mph, a very quick time for a 4300 pound 4 door sedan!!

    I have not seen a pubished time for the 360 that is faster then that...it is faster then most 996tt's, stock and modified. (not including cjv's car ).

    I wonder what Ferrari did to that motor ?? What ever it was I hope they pour a little of that magic into the 360 S and 420 Modena's coming out this summer!!

    Note: I understand that numbers are not the whole picture when it comes to Ferrari's, but, its nice to see Ferrari posting some great numbers anyway.

    Maybe Ferrari finally has raised quality on engine production?

    I actually think that car manufacturers started to provide car magazines with "selected" test cars. They did that before but over the past few months, it seems that almost all manufacturers started to lend very powerful cars to the press.
    Did you ever see a BMW M3 E46 do 0-125 mph in 16.8 seconds? Or a Mercedes C 32 AMG? Did you ever see a Porsche 996 Turbo with X50 doing a better 0-125 mph time than the GT2? How about a SL55 who outruns a GT2 and even a Lamborghini Murcielago from 0-300 kph?
    Or how about a Porsche 996 C4 S without(!) powerkit who does the 0-125 mph in the same time as a GT3?

    I don't believe those car tests in car magazines anymore.
    We testdrove the SL 55 vs. the 996 Turbo. I testdrove a SLK 32 AMG vs. a 996 Turbo and we did lots of GT2 comparison testing. Funny, none of these gave us similar results to car magazine testing. It is sad but true.

    BTW: the S 600 has a very powerful engine. It is a bi-turbo charged V12 from the Maybach. All information I have indicates that most S 600 deliver at least MINIMUM 500 HP...if you understand what I mean. Highly recommendable car for people who need a limousine.
