SLK AMG competition

Here's a couple charts that includes Mercedes Benz AMG competition. The first chart is sorted by curb weight / (HP + Torque). The second is what most use to determine power... HP per pound (curb weight / HP).

To me, the first chart is Representative vs. the second chart since I've been up against a few SLK 55's. I don't think the SLK 55 folks would like the 32 having a better HP to weight ratio.

...and yes, Bill's Cayenne Turbo is included.

...and yes, this does not represent overall performance. Just a ballpark guide.

curb weight / (HP + Torque):



HP per pound (curb weight / HP):

HP sell cars...torque wins races! j'k

Cool chart, nice way to see some quick (pardon the pun *L*) comparisons.
