    wow, only 70 views, and no comments?

    not even any 2 ton plus weight comments?

    Or the benefits of fitting a downforce spoiler? Carlos?

    Just kidding guys, don't flame!

    Could you please summarize on this clip. It has 28MB and I am currently working with a 58k modem...

    Re: RUF RTurbo vs Brabus SV 12 video....



    Thanks for the comments guys.

    As for the video well the two car run down a runway turn around and then floor in second gear. The camera view is from the RUF passenger seat looking at the side view of the Brabus. The Ruf wins by approximately 5-10 car lengths. But IMO it did well, why? Here's why...

    AMS timed the 640bhp SV12 doing 0-300km/hr in 43 seconds (186mph)

    Another guy on the AMG board said it will take a Brabus K8 SL55 with 550bhp and 780Nm to do 0-300km/hr in 35-37 seconds...

    CF and RC from here have said a standard V8 kompressor 500bhp vehicle will do 0-300 in about 43-48 seconds...

    I have personally seen videos of this same RUF Porsche doing 0-190mph in 32 seconds... so at the final trap speeds in the video, The Brabus was 184mph and the RUF at 200mph exactly. In theory the 0-300 time of 43 seconds, vs sub 30 seconds for the RUF, the Brabus must be a mile behind, but it still manages to keep up to the much lighter Porsche albeit by some car lengths.

    you want a mile legth difference? just throw in two or three bends and that will do the job

    Re: RUF RTurbo vs Brabus SV 12 video....

    Bilal, thanks for your summary on the clip.

    Regarding your statement on the different acceleration of both cars I can only contribute that the perceived difference in acceleration and the difference of acceleration numbers on paper often seems to mismatch.

    For example, a 200hp BMW diesel traveling at 180km/h can accelerate remarkably quickly even if you push a X50 to its limits. Of course does the turbo outperform the diesel, even quite substantially so. But if you look into the mirror you are still surprised how quick those diesels are... The same applies to those monster AMGs - they are really quick in the straight line

    sweet video clip, those cars are too fast. one question, anyone know the name of the song in that clip?

    MKGSR I know what you mean, mid range grunt, but the RUF still has 600lbft, thats not exactly "pale" So how did the Brabus keep up so well?

    Re: RUF RTurbo vs Brabus SV 12 video....

    My point is that increasing the power (or torque) of a car has "diminishing rates of return". You know, increasing the power of a car from 100hp to 200hp does make a substantial difference. The difference in real life performance between 200hp and 300hp is smaller. The same applies to the jump from 400hp to 500hp.

    In other words, increasing the power by another 100hp in general does not make that huge of an impact as one would expect by comparing the numbers on paper. Or to be fair, the differences only crystallize at higher and higher speeds. Just my experience

    Re: RUF RTurbo vs Brabus SV 12 video....

    Agreed.

    how on Earth are you going to notice a 50hp upgrade even on a 600bhp vehicle?

    Bilal, why don't you post the link on the PORSCHE Forum, I bet you get more views over there.
