yeah, but hopefully you have some from the finish line so we can see how close (or not close) it was....you could tell the M won in that vid, but not by how much....

It looked like the C55 had a little bit of a head start.. I thought the C55 was supposed to be able to smoke the M3.. was the M modded?

Is the M stock? I swear there was a thread on this and how a 55 AMG would kill an M3... i could be wrong though.

c55s are more powerful(367hp), but i guess it must be gearing and the auto tranny that caused the loss?

C55 with a good driver will beat a stock m3 with a good driver. Its basically a drivers race. The 55 engines differ between models, the C, CLK, SLK and ML are N/A. The 55's that will SMOKE an M3 are the s/c ones like the SL55, CL55, S55, CLS55, and E55. The new 63's are coming out soon and depending on the model its over 500hp N/A

racing from a roll shows the true power of a car, although the powerband may not be useable in everyday driving.

i could say "put the m3 and c55 on a racetrack with some turns, and you'll be seeing ///M badges the whole way through"

every car has it's niche

i think it depends mostly on the driver if the cars are almost similar in horsepower and weight.

top end the C55 SHOULD beat it, i mean come on V8 362 horsepower? i remember a vid way back with a C55, M3, and EVO. the evo kept losing and the C55 and M3 were keeping up with each other til the C55 slowly pulled away as higher speeds were reached...


and if i remember correctly....the ac schnizter (sp?) exhaust loses instead of gaining hp
