    Re: E55 AMG - 300 kph (188 mph) Video

    Here is a "funny" one: in this movie, ESP was turned off and I took a fully 90* curve at around 80 kph (50 mph), only with my left hand on the steering wheel (had the camera in my right hand) and you can slightly see how the car starts to brake out. I assure you that in reality, the breakout of the rear was much more spectacular, one reason why you hear a "sh.." from me at the end of this movie.
    Nothing happened but next time I'll keep both hands on the steering wheel, especially when ESP is turned off.

    Check this link for the movie: E55 AMG doing a 80 kph (50 mph) full 90* curve with ESP turned off

    As you can see: a E55 AMG limousine is fun too.

    Caution: do not try to do what I did, I take no responsibility whatsoever if something happens to you.

    Whoa!

    Christian, is it just me or did you barely miss that marker pole?

    I'll never get used to your User name.

    You're right, I missed it by less than an inch.
    I think my ego went through with me today.

    Yes, I made it. And I highly doubt DC/AMG would ever show such a movie because as far as I know, they don't want to know people in the public that they officially offer a speed raise from 250 kph to 300 kph.
    You can't find this option in any DC E55 AMG brochure...at request only.

    Re: E55 AMG - 300 kph (188 mph) Video

    Cool video!

    Btw, which Autobahn was that? There seemed to be
    remarkably little traffic, which is quite rare during daytime
    at this time of the year.

    It reminded me of the A5 between Karlsruhe and Freiburg
    (but this is just a fairly wild guess).

    Do you know if there is a list of Autobahn sections in
    Germany (or Europe) which are considered to be especially
    fit for high speed driving? (Good visibility, low traffic density,
    no speed limit, etc)

    Thanks and best regards,

    I'm lucky to have a short Autobahn (it is actually a "B" street) in my backyard. This Autobahn is pretty well suited for high speed driving, I did over 330 kph in my 996 Turbo on it.
    It is a pretty new street, no bumps or whatsoever.
    Because of the good visibility, the risk is pretty low.

    You can't even imagine how much I miss my Turbo but I also have to be honest to say that I love the E55's engine. The supercharged V8 engine is a real treat.

    Great driving RC! What is your background? I think I read you are an ex-rally driver? Is this true? What rally series?

    Thanks

    I apologize if you have posted them before, but do you have any videos of your Turbo as well? (And thanx for the great E 55 vids)

    2 years Group N, Lancia Delta HF Integrale 16V, a long long time ago. I was pretty young and ran out of money (parents) and sponsors, so I had to stop because I needed more time for university. It has been fun, especially because I met people like Ronald Holzer and had the pleasure to work with them but right now I'm happy I didn't go further.
