My SLK55 vs E55

Just a little fun in Mexico... we were trying to do a couple runs from 45 to 120 but we had to cut it off due to traffic. I just got the car tuned recently and wanted to see how I held up against a E55 I was surprised with the results. I know he will walk me at higher speeds but in the second race I was actually very slowly pulling. Clearly with a tiny mod even a pulley he will take me but just cool to see how they stack up. I was very impressed with the tune I got the thing feels A LOT stronger like all the power was unleashed! Sorry for the BS at the beginning of the vid but the vid also gives you a little idea on how my car sounds the loud grumble is mine! Enjoy

They had two people in there car and it was just me in mine but the weight difference couldnt have been that much more than 100lbs I had a good 40lbs on both of them I would say they were about 140 each and im about 180. Good times none the less the car feels like a whole new car. I want to race a stock SLK55 to see what the difference will be!

Cool fall/spring air will definitely give you your best times and can be easily worth a couple tenths or more. Good luck and have fun!

Don't sell yourself short! I've never had an easier, or more consistent, car to drive at the strip than the '55 .
