    E55 speedo pic....



    Its boring, speed

    Re: E55 speedo pic....

    The speed is not boring but sure it's the cluster design .
    Anyway, credit to AMG for making these powered limo monsters.

    I know it is no problem for a E55 to do around 310 kph on the speedo and even more if tuned and delimited. But this picture looks like a photoshop job to me. Why? The numbers, the design, everything is very clear, just the digital reading is shaky and wiped out. I smell something...

    Re: E55 speedo pic....

    Why the doubts over the pic? User annyson has already shown us a video of the E55 pulling hard at 309km/hr, the car has 500bhp, long gearing and is aerodynamically excellent, why the doubts over its ability to hit 200mph?

    The picture could be photoshopped, but does that prevent us from admitting the E55's true ability? Are you all ashamed somehow the E55 is that fast?

    I seem to recall RC stating that AMG's engineers told him the E55 could hit 330km/hr with no limiter, why the sudden change in thought? I can understand the validity of such a pic being questioned due to the digital readout being fuzzy, but to me, it seems there is the rather sinister matter of jealousy perhaps? Anger? Disbelief ? In the true capabilities of the E55.

    Bilal, did you read my post? Re-read it, PLEASE.
    I said it is no problem for the E55 to drive at 309 kph on the speedo or even more. I just said that I think the picture is a PS job, nothing more. You're getting too touchy too easily.

    Now the impressive part is that the dyno wheels kept up good

    Re: E55 speedo pic....

    Apologies If i came across with an attitude. Its just that I have posted teh pics on other forums, and there the people have clearly expressed the E55's inability ability to perform as such.

    It is dodgy that the digital readout has gone, but what if the car it a bump at that particular speed or the road was bumpy?

    At the end of the day, even if it is a photoshop, there's no doubt in my mind that the E55 can go that fast.

    Re: E55 speedo pic....

    Bilal, there is no doubt that a completely delimited E55 AMG can do 320 kph on the speedo and probably even "true" 320 kph. I don't know why people have doubts because they just need to use their brain for doing some logic thinking:
    why does AMG limit the E55 AMG to 300 kph if it can't run any faster? And when I was doing top speed, the speedo showed 309 kph as far as I remember.
    I suppose most people have a little problem with logic thinking.

    Regarding the picture: I took lots of speedo shots while the car was moving. Even when the analogue reading of the speedo was a little bit blurry, the digital readout was still visible, blurry but readable. Maybe this isn't a PS job but I'm pretty much positive.
