CLK 320 vs E 270 CDI

hey guys
I want to race with a friend of mine.
I got a CLK 320, 1998 v6, 224hp / 315nm
He has a E 270 CDI, 2003, 177hp / 400nm

I want to know what ur feelings are about this race,
Who will win and why ?

My opinion about this is, that it will end in a draw
because, I have more horsepower than him, but he has a 2003 technology engine with more nm and turbo.

RE: CLK 320 vs E 270 CDI

I'd be quite willing to say the CLK320 will whip its butt. Why?

I don't know about the E270 CDI, but I do know about an E320 CDI vs the E320 gasser.

From stop to 120 mph, the E320CDI ends up several tractor trailer lengths behind the E320 gasser. Despite the fact that they are nearly equal at times to 60 mph.

Although a diesel has more torque, it achieves it at a lower rpm, and it trails off quickly at higher engine speeds. Plus, since engine speed is limited, gearing ends up being taller for the diesel. Hampering the performance even more.

If an E320 sedan can win in a race against an E320CDI, than I would like to think a CLK320 could outpace an E270CDI.[:)]
