You think the SRT-8 is underrated????

Well get a look at this......

First off, I don't know why I just learned this (if these stats are true that is) because I'm such a car nut I should know these things, but a fellow forum member PM'd me about bench marking the SRT-8's performance against the likes of the AMG family and I came across this:


So let me get this straight....The similarly weighted, but only 16 more HP (if you consider the SRT-8 is underrated at 450HP which I believe it is) but a little more significantly out torqued E55 AMG does 12.5 in the QT BONE STOCK!!!!

The SRT-8's that are supercharged and injected with nitrous at around 500RWHP don't run this times.

So what gives? I can only say the E55 AMG is Also EXTREEEEMELY underrated.

What say you?

Back in the early 90's when we were all runnin our Turbocharged Buicks real hard, it seem like for years someone was finding small modifications that made more and more power to those little 6's. Now you get a near bone stock with minimal mods into the low 12's high 11's. What im getting at is, im thinking we will see major improvements in acceleration when someone gets into the computers of our cars and do some minor mods.

I agree with you..............but you referring to a turbo charged car is not fair really considering upping the boost makes an ass load of power. :silly:

EXACTLY!!! How did you find such a "picture perfect" vision of what a sports car is supposed to be? :silly:
