Fastest 4400 lb grocery getter around...

Here's my best run in my 05' E55. It's the fastest (although NOTHING close to Viper territory) street legal Mercedes run in the US that I am aware of. It was at Atco last month, the 10 second camaro next to me makes me look like a 16 second car:
11.25 @ 129.45 in Atco, NJ

Here is a run up to 190 this past Friday night. WARNING: Take dramamine at least 30 minutes prior to viewing. It gets VERY SHAKY above 165.

190 mph

I'm really thinking hard about getting a viper. They seem like the ultimate sports combination of power and styling. I'd have to head down to Bradenton for some lessons first.

Not bad for a E-class. The E55 will always be a better daily driver than the Viper (gen I/II) If you plan to use it daily I'd go with a Gen III. Nice E-class though :thumb:

Maybe some of the drag strip gurus can chime in here, but 11.25 @ 129.45 is right up there with any stock Viper that I've ever seen.

Nice run.

E55 is the best daily driver on the market, IMO. A 4-door luxury sedan that will blow the doors off of 90% of the cars on the road :thumb:

Nice E55. I thought RennTech had some in the tens though? Maybe not.

Considering my 55 ran a 12.51 at 109ish, your car is badass!

Not sure you could replace an E55 with any Viper for a DD but they are worth checking out if you are hardcore about performance.

RockStar, have you seen the new CLS55 yet? Basically the Gotham City E55. Very cool DD.

Re: Fastest 4400 lb grocery getter around...

I gotta give props to the Merc. engines. Those V8 SC and V12 TT are something else.... The times they run in ++4000 lbs tanks are amazing! IMO, they are a bit underrated from the factory. Anyone have any stock dyno numbers? Imagine these motors in a 3400 pound Viper... Especially the TT V12...

Probably wouldn't be anywhere near the TT v10s we already have in them.

Re: Fastest 4400 lb grocery getter around...

Gerald, that's what I thought.

Chad, I haven't seen a CLS55 in person yet. I've seen pics and it does look pretty nice.

The main reason that I love the E55 is that when it's parked on a street corner or driving down the road, it looks just like every other Mercedes you see.

Until you mash the gas pedal and the dork in the Camaro beside you has to explain to his girlfriend that he didn't feel like racing.

Hey Derek what's up? Nice to see you here too. As a new Viper owner, I must chime in, you should look into getting one. It is a blast, different than the E in a lot of ways.

Thanks guys, the props are much appreciated. Hearing that from Gary (whose video of the motorcycle kill everyone has seen) is cool.

Mods include:
Kleemann Stage 2 (Headers, Pulley, ECU, K&N Air Filters)
Kleemann LSD
BF DR's on the record run but have now switched to MT SR's on CCW 16" in the hopes of reducing my 60' time.
65 shot

Chad, I do not think that a Renntech has gone better than 11.25 though I am certainly open to correction.

Rockstar, that is exactly why I love it. I can drive clients around in a 4 door luxury car during the day, and then run low 11's or 190 at night. Kinda like the perfect wife- a lady in the boardroom and a slut in the bedroom.

Noredline, good to see you and thanks for the welcome. I'm definitely in the serious research mode on Vipers. I'm a good driver of an E but the Viper is a whole different world.

Same here chief, I'm heading to Laguna Seca for a Skip Barber class maybe in July. I will only drive the Viper maybe every other weekend, but still, gotta get used to it.

I saw a CLS55 AMG at the USGP last weekend for the first time. It was black with polished wheels and HUGE brakes. Awesome car.

Re: Fastest 4400 lb grocery getter around...

I love my cls55...its fairly quick and looks different than any other benz out there

I think i need to send my car to Kleemann.. what did they charge for all the mods? Renntech charges $16g for headers, airbox, computer and pully which does about 600hp. Have you ever dynoed yours? How well does it handle spray? I'd love to get my benz to trap mid - high 120s. PM me if you would rather not disclose this information to the rest of the boards

Kleemann Stage 2 was $7900 I believe and the Kleemann LSD was $2900 I believe. It seems to handle the spray very well but spraying that engine is not exactly well traveled ground.

Last dyno was about 555 rwhp & 620 torque on the spray and 450 rwhp & 480 torque off the spray.
