I was driving up hill about 30mph on Pelican Hills at Newport Beach with girlfriend last night, some old lady (I think she is like mid 50) pull up right next to me and my gf said why don't we give it a try.............damn from 40-85 we were almost the same right after 90 she pulled away like crazy.............well I didn't past 6800rpm on every gear cuz the ///M still at the 1800 mark but still even tho I redline it still wouldn't past that beast. Damn I need a supercharger badly.

The Z8 is the only BMW that would even have a realistic shot at beating a SL55 AMG (but would still lose). Even though the Z8 has "only" 394 hp, & 368 ft-lbs. vs. the 493 hp, & 516 ft-lbs. of the SL55 AMG, it is lighter by about 800 lbs. (the 6-sp manual tranny also helps reduce the deficit).

Anyways, the avg 1/4 mile time per mag road tests is:

Z8 - 12.9 s
SL55 AMG - 12.8 s

So basically, even if you're a great manual driver, you'd still probably lose in a Z8 (currently BMW's fastest production car), as the SL55 AMG driver just has to stomp & hold on to steering wheel with his/her lazy hands. :D :tongue:

It should be close in a 1/4 mile race, since the M3 vert is much heavier than the M3 coupe (which is suppose to be much faster than the CLK500). If Simon knows what he's doing, he *should* win, but not by much.
