10 Best Performers, 2002

Acceleration, 0 to 60 mph ......... Porsche 911 GT2, 3.8 sec
Street start, 5 to 60 mph ......... Dodge Viper SRT-10, 4.6 sec
Quarter-mile ......... Porsche 911 GT2, 12.0 sec @ 121 mph
Top-gear acceleration ......... Ferrari 575M Maranello F1 and Mercedes-Benz C32 AMG, 5.6 sec
Top speed ......... Ferrari 575M Maranello F1, 200 mph
Braking, 70 to 0 mph ......... Dodge Viper SRT-10, 153 ft
Roadholding, 300-foot-dia skidpad ......... Dodge Viper SRT-10, 1.00 g
Interior sound level @ 70 mph ......... BMW 745i, 65 dBA
EPA city fuel economy ......... Honda Insight, 61 mpg
C/D-observed fuel economy ......... Honda Insight, 55 mpg

OK...forget the last 3 ;) but I found this to be amazing that the Viper (yeah an SRT :rolleyes:) was voted first in three of the remaining 7 catagories! AND NO VETTES!!! I'm actually impressed with the voting. Is this the end of Mopar bashing at C & D? /images/graemlins/supergrin.gif

That's great - I'm sure the Viper was not too far behind in the 1/4 mile!! /images/graemlins/gr_driving3.gif

The breaking REALLY impresses me - especially with the Porsche GT2 in the mix! /images/graemlins/headbang.gif

TOO BAD THEY DIDNT LIST FASTEST 0-150 MPH TIME. GT2 WAS SOMETHING LIKE 19 SEC. ANYBODY GUESS WHO GOT 2ND PLACE?

SRT10 RAN 0-150 IN 23 SEC. FOR 3RD PLACE.

2ND PLACE? ANYONE, ANYONE? BUELER?

MERCEDES E55: 0-150 IN 22.xx SEC. - FASTER THAN THE SRT AND IT CARRIES 5 PLUS 3 SETS OF GOLF CLUBS.

NO KNOCK ON THE SRT - ITS A GREAT CAR, BUT A SEDAN THAT IS FASTER TO 150 IS SIMPLY AMAZING PERIOD.

HEY FONTENOT - GO EASY ON THOSE SRT'S........

I'll try not to embarrass any Viper owners out there when I roll out in the E55.Though once it is modded a bit, I might not be able to help it!
It will be a nice stablemate to my Venom 650R+.
Just hate to get rid of the M5. It has been a wonderful
car.

I had no idea the C32 AMG was so potent. Little car with a bit of grunt. Maybe I should consider it. Fuck I dont know what I want /images/graemlins/laughing.gif

Indecisive little bitch.
I drove the C32 and it was quick. Just rode rough for what I wanted so I ordered the 2004 E55. It is faster, more luxury and more room. I already have a fast, rough riding smaller car...it is called a Viper!
The C32 is MB's answer to the M3 - except with 4 doors and a slush box. I was considering them both for a while before the E55. The M3 rode more rough and had only two doors. I would pick the C32 over the M3 for overall speed, use and luxury though.

The C32 is the Martha Stewart of sport sedans. It's the car you want your wife to get, so you have something halfway fun to drive while your shit is in the shop. It's no M3, much less anything to get worked up about.

What Smoke is looking for is a fun daily driver. He has a supercharged (soon) Viper for God's sake. The C32 is much more practical than the M3, better ride, more room and just as fast. It would make a much better daily driver than a M3 (having an auto tranny in Houston traffic is definetely a plus). This would replace his boring ass Acura TL!
Anything is more exciting than that! No offense, Smoke.
