What type of terrain are you talking about? If it's a road where your AWD can take advantage, I'm almost certain the Twin Turbo's AWD could do the same but probably better. I also question your claim of the Twin Turbo driver as a great driver. No offense but from what I understand, the E500 has little over 300 hp and I'm not sure on the weight of the car, but I'm willng to bet that E500 is several hundred pounds heavier then the Twin Turbo Porsche. The power to weight ratio is really not in your favor. Compound that with lower certer of gravity for the Porsche, I just don't see how you managed to beat the Twin Turbo Porsche with 400+hps with lighter weight.
I don't mean to offend you with my questions but I'm a little confused with your story. I would like to also point out that I am not a Benz owner nor have I driven your model, so I'm just speculating at best here, so feel free to correct me if I am off base with my questions.
