I'm a prowed owner of an E50 AMG. I bought it used. The car is a clean '97 with about 40K miles. The first thing I did was to look for ways to remove the speed limiter. I discovered later that it has no top speed limit. The beast is only limited by red line in 5th. It easily passed 280 km/h (and still pulling) when it touched the rev limiter. Great power.

Drag strip

Alas, I really can't think of a road straight and long enough around here to get that kind of speed up :)<br> <br> Jamie -- London, UK

Re: Drag strip

Hi Jamie,<br> <br> In the Gulf we have lots of them. To reach 280 km/h, you don't need a very long road with an E50/E55 AMG. I'm not sure but I felt, from 140 km/h to 280 km/h, it took less than 30 seconds about 8 km (5 miles). I did it only when the road was clear from all cars very early in the morning.<br> BTW, I invite you to visit Kuwait to do it yourself. I've been to the UK from 97-1990 and I love it. Regards, Talla.
