    Mercedes E55 AMG Test in AM&S

    German "Auto Motor & Sport", edition 13/2003 of June 11, 2003, has a comparison of the AMG E55 vs. Audi RS6:

    The E55 won with 515 vs. 492 points. Main reasons for winning were superior engine performance, enhanced suspension set-up and lower overall cost.

    These are the main figures:

    ..........................AMG E55 / Audi RS6

    0 - 100 km/h......4.4......./.....4.7 sec.
    0 - 200 km/h.....14.2....../....17.9 sec.
    curbweight........1930...../...1900 kg
    kg / hp............ 4.05....../....4.22
    power.........476 at 6100./..450 at 5700 hp at rpm
    torque........700 at 2650./..560 at 1950 Nm at rpm
    price tag........89,100.--./...87,500.-- EUR

    In order to compete here more successfully the Audi RS6 would definitely need some chip-tuning ....and then the AMG gets an upgraded chip and is in front again....that car is almost unbeatable in its class !

    Now you know why I bought the E55.
    I wonder how much power the E55 really has.
    My guess would be somewhere around 520 HP but I wonder if someone ever did an engine dyno run.

    I knew before....

    that you made a perfect choice !

    But still I would take the Audi, of course equipped with an ABT-Chip, as I would often drive it under wet and slippery conditions here in the Harz mountains. I had an E55 this winter for a day and I was slightly disappointed. On pure Autobahn performance no question, the E55 shines !

    Re: I knew before....

    The ESP on the E55 is indeed very annoying. Even on dry streets during warm days it comes on all the time. When you turn it off, tires do a horrible squeeking noise and it comes on again at extreme driving conditions. 4WD would definetely be something the E55 needs or at least a limited slip differential.

    I'd love to have the bi-turbo charged V12 engine in my E55 because with a little bit of ECU tuning, I'd get a lot of power.
    Unfortunately this isn't that easy with the supercharged V8 engine, you need hardware changes too (pulley for example).
