I tried to shrug it off but he kept on egging. I believe it was an E320 since it was debadged. Since it was late at night and no cars around I said why not. As expected, my car took him on the launch and the other car never caught up. Second light. Same thing. We even tried at a roll. That car is slow but not surprised since its so big. Anyways, just thought I'd share.



and gordonmurray, make that pic smaller before you post it.

my pop has a 04' E-class 320 w/ AWD and although it has decent power, it comes nowhere close to my 330. E-class is sweet though, very luxurious and just beautiful. i love that car :drool:

This is no suprise...those E320's are rather slow...But in any case good kill...

Also the fact that it was debadged doesnt necessarily mean that it's an E320...but considering you gave him a good thrashing I would say it was.


well, it had E500 trimmings, the rims, exhaust seemed bigger. but the E500 is supposed to rape me. So I assumed it was a E320.

According to the #'s, a 330i's performance comes pretty close to an E500 despite the 302hp and V8. Here's what I got from a little searching:

'03-'04 E500:
0-60 time: 5.8 sec.
1/4 mile: 14.3 @ 99mph

330i:
0-60 time: 6.1 sec.
1/4 mile: 14.7 @ 96mph

(source: car-stats.com)

I'd say that it looks more like a driver's race between the two cars. But yeah, from your description it sounds like that was a E320 that tried to run you.

I wonder if any 330 drivers on this board had any experience with an E500?

I TOTALLY 2nd that. I rented a E320 once and was totally disappointed at it's accleration as well as it's braking. The car is just too heavy. I have a 2004 - 330ci now and it will undoubtedly kill the Eclass.

E500 would easily blast a 330 above 80 mph. Remember that inertia is much less a factor when you're already moving.

E320 would not under any circumstances.
