"AMG e55 with 476hp meets Audis Rs6 with 450hp and the bmw's M5 with 400hp.

the 360m slalom is not for the e55, after 200m the powersteering starts giving up and without stabilty cotnrol it's har for experienced driver to cotnrol the car. the sprint on the other hand shows the e55 at it's best..... 0-100km/h in 4.8 sec. 200 km/h after 14.8 sec. top speed 255 km/h governed. brake test 100-0 in 38m


the rs6 is the best in the slalom becasufe of the all wheel drive. it's even easy to control when the stabilty control is turned off. in the sprint the rs6 is off by the OEM numbers 0-100km/h in 5.5sec . 200km/h in 12 more sec (17.5sec) . top speed 255km/h governed. brake test 100-0 in 37m

on the slalom course the bmw feels good too. always easy to control with ot without stabilty control..... the sprint 0-100km/h the bmw needs 5.3sec with an experienced driver and DSC off. the DSC is taking too much power from the engine. brake test 100-0 in 39m


(skipping the details of the cars. and continue on the track.)


the e55 is on it's limit on the track. the ESP (stability control) is working overtime. without it even an experienced driver has problem going around the track.

the rs6 is like on rail tracks. it's almost immposible to bring it out of shape. thanks to its so called IRC (or something) it has very little body roll.

the bmw also has a setup for the race happy driver. especially the good setup shifter is a lot of fun to play with. a bit understeer when going in and a bit oversteering out of the corners only if the DSC is turned off.

(when the cars are behind each other)

the bmw is an old school race car. (saugmotor dont know what it is in english, whatever sort of engine it is) ..... engine, manual shifter and the chasis(fahrwerk if chasis is not the word) are always fun to drive with or without the electronic help (DSC).

the rs6 has the best brakes, good chasis, steering and good traction, but can not keep up with the other ones.

the e55's engine is the best on the whole car. it's the high speed limousine. but the electronic help is needed really bad. and it's not meant for the race track. "



that's going from the beginning of the movie i just hope some didn't translate it now while i'm still typing it

YO that was good, but who won?? It looks like at the end the M5 came in last....but thats not fair because they are comparing two brand new models with an older M5, compare that with the V10 M5 and we will see who owns da road biatch!

Thanks a bunch for translating allen.

ok, from what MP says,

The Benz had the best straigh line speed, and no handling.
The Audi had the best handling, but less straightline speed.
and the M5 was somewhere in the middle, with good handling and good power.


So does that make the M5 the winner since its somewhere in the middle with less flaws?

well M5 came up as a winner for me
older model, non turbo charged, and still very close to amg
amg has just terrible handling, you can see it on the video, he even lost control.

So Vlad, you should reconsider e55

Yeah, but I doubt he's gonna track his E55.. I wonder what will happen when Dinan slaps a supercharger on the M5..

When that happens, look out!!! I think that th eM5 is the better overall car, but when the newer one comes out, oh man it will be the ultimate luxury sports sedan out there without a question, plus think if it was a biturbo like the audi?? No one would ever stand a chance!!

well you saw them race, and I wouldn't say e55 killed m5.
e55 is a bit faster I agree, but it is SUPERCHARGED V8 with 76 more hp we are talking about and newer technology.
