Had a quick but short run with a C32 in my M5.
They are as quick as a M3.
I pulled him at higher speeds.

So it is definintely faster than a 540.

That's what I though ... is C55 faster than C32?

Quack 05-11-2006 03:32 PM

according to MB website the C55 runs 0-100 in 5.1sec, but MB always underates their times

Yes you can.

1) If the other drivers sucks.
2) He is on a heavy load you on a light load.
3) His tires are on wet pavment and you on dry.

There are many variables, however MBc32 is a faster vehicle.:moon:

I would say so.
That's a BIG engine to stuff into a small car like the C class.
That car is sized like a Civic or a 3 series.
Imagine a 5.5l engine in a 3 series car!!!

I wonder if they are planning to put the new 6.2l engine into the C class.
Now that would be insane!

Actually they did put it into the CLK63:-

475hp of madness!
Hey if you can't sell the customer on the handling and driving dynamics that you don't have compared to a BMW, sell them the BIG hp!

Quack 05-11-2006 05:23 PM

that's true, MB can't handle at all compare to BMW, but most of the customers from MB aren't looking for a vehicle with good handling, they are looking for a comfort vehicle that looks fancy & if needed to go fast the power is there, but it isn't a car meant for the track

What about S/C 540i6 ... say ESS stage I?

Quack 05-16-2006 06:06 PM

well if you can drive a ESS S/C 540i6 should do 0-60 in about 4.8sec

Now that would smoke not only a C32 but probably my M5....
