    CLS63 vs CLS55 vs M5(E39) [track comparison]

    On Hockenheim track(Sport Auto):

    CLS63

    1.18.5 min Top speed on the track: 188km/h

    CLS55

    1.17.8 min Top speed on the track: 183km/h

    M5(E39)

    1.18.5 min Top speed on the track: 182km/h


    Re: CLS63 vs CLS55 vs M5(E39) [track comparison]

    As an e39 M5 owner and enthusiast I am happy with the results. It is a much less powerful car with a much better chasis. The 55 just has so much low end grunt it overpowers the other two.

    So you own an E39 M5.I would like to inform you of something very interesting about the capabilities of your car!  You said that 55 has SO MUCH LOW END GRUNT and it OVERPOWERS the other two but let me show you something interesting about your car when compared to CLS55 in terms of tractability in low revs:

    M5(E39)       in Sport Auto          

    80-120km/h in 5/6 gear = 5.7s-7.8s

    CLS55         in Sport Auto

    80-120km/h in 4/5 gear = 5.9s-8.7s

    This is really interesting that despite 200nm torque difference, the E39 M5 is even more tractable in a gear higher than CLS55 !!!

    That shows proper and excellent gearing of the M5 + excellent and flat torque curve.

    Thanks Karabiner! That is very unexpected and increases the respect I have for my car  Perhaps the parasitic drag of the supercharger causes these slower times...
