    - Dragtimes.com "While we’re still waiting for the Lamborghini Huracan to hit the streets over here in the US, they are out and about elsewhere in the world. We came across some video of a brand new Lamborghini Huracan in Rosso Mars running heads up vs a Porsche 911 Turbo S PDK Cabriolet.The Huracan’s 5.2L V10 with 610 horsepower, 7 speed dual clutch transmission and 3,450 pound curb weight should put it pretty far ahead of the Porsche’s 3.8L Twin Turbocharged Flat 6 with 530 horsepower and a 7 speed PDK transmission and 3,600 curb weight. However, the races are very close with each car pulling ahead at different points in the race." http://www.dragtimes.com/blog/lamborghini-huracan-vs-porsche-911-turbo-s-pdk-racing

    What do you consider a "fast" car now days for a "daily" street-able car?

    This race is simply a beatdown. To those that know the cars it should not be all that surprising. Both cars feature tunes from PP-Performance. The C63 AMG Black Series M156 engine is already in a high state of tune from the factory. As the 6.2 liter M156 engine is naturally aspirated and tuned aggressively by AMG there is not much room to gain power on the car. Certainly not as much room to gain with a tune as there is with the turbocharged M4. The cars put out very similar wheel horsepower figures in stock form as the C63 AMG Black Series shows ~430 wheel horsepower on a Dynojet. With a tune this can approach the 460 wheel horsepower range depending on how aggressive the timing is and the fuel quality. The stock torque figure is roughly ~405 lb-ft of torque at the wheels whereas the S55 in the M3/M4 shows 429 lb-ft of wheel torque stock. Once tuned, even with a modest tune, the M4 exceeds the C63 Black Series. Horsepower rises to over 479 at the wheels and torque at the wheels goes to 484 lb-ft. Combine the power and torque advantage with a quicker shifting dual clutch transmission and the M4's roughly 400 pound lighter curb weight and you get the result you see here. Not to mention the C63 AMG Black Series aerodynamics also create more drag. The M4 continues to pull impressively to 175 miles per hour and the C63 AMG Black Series is too far back to even be seen. AMG fans will no doubt be quick to point out that if you boost the C63 AMG Black Series things change in the other direction.

    Test and tune nights are pretty straight forward, you drive the car to the track, wait in line, make a few passes throughout the night and go home. On a hot, muggy July evening we took the shop 2014 Alpha 7 Mercedes Benz E63 AMG 4matic to our local track, Great Lakes Dragway to make some data acquisition runs before installing our new Alpha Boost Cooler system. Rain was predicted for the evening and track attendance reflected the forecast, there were very few cars running leaving the staging lanes wide open. Getting right to it Paul staged the E63 M157 BiTurbo and made a quick shakedown pass at 10.92. We checked the logs and continued to run the car making multiple 10 second passes. After making a few consistent passes most people would be satisfied and call it a night, but we had another idea, just how many 10 second passes could we run that night? The goal was set at 10 to test the consistency of our Alpha 5.5L BiTurbo tune. Pass after pass was made throughout the night and we exceeded our goal by making ELEVEN 10 second passes with a best of 10.87 @ 128.28mph, only two hundredths of a second off our current 4Matic record. Each of the 11 passes the Alpha powered AMG made was within .099 seconds and 1.32 mph of each other. In addition, the 0-60 times were all 2.86 seconds verified by the V-Box Sport. Talk about consistency!Overall we are very pleased with the results from the Alpha 7 5.5L BiTurbo package. It has proven it is capable of beating exotic cars like the McLaren MP4-12c and has performed flawlessly during all our testing. This package has been amazingly consistent and we look forward to going back to the track once the Alpha Boost Cooler system is installed and improving on our current best of 10.85 @ 129mph.

    ** Previous years lap times are void due to VIR recently being repaved. ** 2014 Lightening Lap Results. Stingray and Z28 have an amazing showing. Stingray out lapping R8 V10+ by 3.7 secs and the M4 by a whopping 6.9 secs. E63 quicker than M4...hmmm interesting. Z28 0.1 sec off the F12.
