    Sport Auto CLS 55/M5/SLK55 acceleration data...

    I don't know where to post this, but some acceleration numbers derived form sport auto with CLS/SLK and M5...


    THE SLK 55 is a ROCKET, check out the in gear acceleration times generally up to about 100mph and then for 4th gear vs the other two 500bhp machines!

    0 - 40 km/h: CLS55: 1.5 sec / SLK55: 1.5 sec / M5: 1.5 sec
    0 - 60 km/h: CLS55: 2.3 sec / SLK55: 2.4 sec / M5: 2.3 sec

    Conclusion, disappointed with CLS 55 (if you can call a 55K engined car disappointing) , but SLK55 is amaaaazing, that 7 speeder is quicker intitally than both CLS and M5!! Imagine a more powerful AMG engine and 7 G tronic!

    Wow that was a bunch of numbers b. Is the CLS supercharged?

    Yes, it's supercharged. It is however missing two gears compared to the M5.

    "b", is that my new nick from now on? I like it!

    I'm sorry about the numbers. The only reason I got excited was the in-grear acceleration times of the SLK55 vs the CLS55 and M5. in some speed ranges, its quicker, with only 360hp! The 7G tronic transmission is really awsome in providing awesome downshift and in-gear acceleration. The CLS is handicapped with only 5 and really long gearing. The M5 is as expected...quick! The ability of that "baby SLR" to keep up and beat the other two is astonishing. One can only imagine what a 500+bhp engine with 7 G tronic will do to other cars!
