MB is usually conservative so my guess is if you can get enough traction it is 4.6 - 4.8

Rememeber that when the SLK32 came out it was the fastest AMG model.

Are the times for 0-60kmph or 0-60mph?

I think better times are had if you take off the ESP.

Does anyone have any stats for the passing speeds? Say 60-80, or 60-100? The other day I kicked mine hard while doing 80 and the thing jumped over 120 before I caught it.

Times are 60mph or ~100mph.

You have to have ESP off or the nanny slaps your hand (actually makes you look like an idiot, lurching and all [:eek:)]).

Isn't 100kph a tad over 60 mph (like 62-3mph)? It looks like that on my speedo.

funny!!!!!!!!

I was going to write that I went from 80 mph to 110 mph the other day in like 10 ms........but you got there faster!
I dont do this too often but the usual bunch of
speed -impaired trailers were in the way of my (rapid) progress home.
Adrian,
