The E55 has a published zero-to-60 mph acceleration time of<br>5.4 seconds. I think this a bit conservative. Has anyone<br>gotten better times than this ?<p>Thanks<p>J.P.

That's like comparing apples to oranges....more

I guess your referring to a modified 540. A better comparison would be your DINAN 540 to Renntechs EV12, the ultimate sedan with 620 hp, 0-60 mph times of 3.9 secs, 0-100 mph times of 8.6 secs, 0-150 mph times of 19.9, a quarter mile time of [email protected] and a top speed of 202 mph. <p>Now how fast is your DINAN ? Next time, post something that makes sense like E55 vs. M5. <p>Benny

Yeah, and I can build an AMC Pacer that will blow away a Corvette...

Anybody can take a car, throw money at it, and end up with a machine that will beat any factory car on the road. What does that prove?

I own a 1998 Silver E55 in Saudi Arabia.<br>0-100Km/h:4.7sec<br>Top Speed: 282Km/h.<br>My brother has the M5 and the S8 and I still beat both cars. The 3rd gear of the M5 is better than the E55, but once its in the 4th gear, the E55 dominates. The S8 is always behind.

Hi Tarek,<br> <br> Is the E55 limited to 282 km/h by red line in 5th gear? I'm asking because I have a 97 E50 AMG that goes beyond 280 km/h then it cuts off when it hits the red line in 5th.<br> <br> Also, does it come stock without a speed limiter? or you had to reprogram the computer to remove it?<br> <br> Regards, Talla. (Kuwait)
