some sort of AMG Mercedes

I pulled up next to a silver mercedes that had a the AMG logo on the back at a stop light. I didnt really think too much about racing him, but when the light turned green he floored it and took off. I didnt know we were racing so Ilet him go for that one. At the next light he rolls down the window and says "you cant keep up with me" So when the light turned green I was ready for him. I put about a car length on him to 60 and let off. He did the ricer fly by and when we stopped at the next light he asked me how much nitrous I was running... I told him none and he flipped me off and took off. My mods are CAI tune and exhaust. I dont know what kind of Mercedes it was. I know some of the AMG cars are real fast. It didnt sound like a V-8 and it was a bigger car.

Nice kill.

Was it a 4 door? Perhaps an S-class S55? Very possible to 60mph given a good launch. It would have been interesting past 80mph. The guy was a tool, too bad.

Edit - or an S63?

What a loser he is in many more ways than one. Hmm, well I guess maybe I'd be pissed if I spent all that money "thinking" I had the best and the fastest car in the world only to be proven that I in fact do not. Too bad the class of a car rarely fits its owner.

It was a 4 door. My car has been dyno tuned it wasn't a diablo or programmer tune. I paid 500$ and got 32 HP and 22 TQ to the wheels from the tune(aand the intake and TB Ported. I forgot to mention that. I know it is basically impossible to get 30WHP from just a tune on an LS2).
I only wish I had been driving the WS6... I would have really embarassed him in that.

I was looking online and judging by the shape of the car I think it was an E class mercedes. It wasnt newer, it was maybe 2001-2003. I still cant figure it out. It is bothering me cause I wanted to look up the specs and find out if he should have beaten me.

He was pissed off because you handed him his as*. Too bad he did not handle the situation like an adult and give the proper respect you deserved. NICE KILL...

Some of those AMG's are mean - mean cars that will give you a run for your money and more. If you race one of those make sure it's a straight line deal...

Well I figured out what it was. I found a pic online. It was a CL55 AMG. 362 horses and he outweighs me so not that impressive. Still cool because the guy was a D$%k

The CLK55 TWO door is a mid-size coupe with the NA V8 362hp. A good race for a stock LS2.

The CL55 TWO door is a large coupe with the SC V8, 493hp/510?tq and should edge out a tuned LS2.

You sure it was a 4 door?

Well that can't be it, 4 doors are E, CLS, S and C class.
