    S55 short track vid

    Did a little track vid and after watching the SL600 accel vid popped together some old acceleration vids

    Got a 5MB upload limit so the quality is not the best

    http://us.share.geocities.com/mrjumjum/S55accel.wmv


    Track vid shows chasing down two Lotus Elise type R's

    Track ViD

    quite good that a fat two ton (1985kg) limo can catch these grippy light 860kg track cars

    Elise 111R 189 bhp, 220 bhp per ton, 4.9 seconds 0-60mph,
    150 mph top speed, 0.95g grip skid pan.

    S55AMG 493bhp, 250 bhp per ton, 4.8 seconds 0-62.5 mph, 155 mph, 0.88g grip skid pan.

    Thx for posting.....have often heard that CL/S55 are capable of surprisingly good performance on track for 4300lb+ beasts...what disappoints me most about CL55 is that steering feels same as that of non-AMG big Merc...not confidence-inspiring for fast driving even on busy urban freeways, let alone twisties.....would be much more impressed by CL55 if steering feel were similar to SL55's.....

    i simply love my sl55's steering it's very light and responsive, unfortunately on highier speeds with sharp corners, it tends to understeer. i drove the CL55 before and i must say there is a considerable difference..

    Funny track vid, I'd say 350 hp more in a car MAKES a difference - on the other hand you don't really lose in the corners on those Elises!

    Have you driven the 12-cylinder version of that car? I could imagine that its heavier weight makes it less tossable through those curves.
