    • Stock 2012 W212 Mercedes E63 AMG (non-Performance Package) versus 2013 Nissan GT-R drag race

      The M157 E63's are very fast cars even in stock form. These 1/4 mile numbers are a little slower than expected though but keep in mind it was run at PBIR (Palm Beach International Raceway) in 1200+ DA and 76% humidity. Florida does not have the fastest tracks especially once the weather begins to warm. The E63 ran 12.0@116 and the GT-R ran 11.0@123. So, the GT-R is clearly the faster car although a Performance Package E63 would have been much closer.

      The owner stated he did not opt for the Performance Package because it does not include a limited slip or larger turbos. Makes complete sense to us as we would not opt for it either when there is more aggressive software out there for less money.

        i still like the fact that the top 3 quickest E63 spots are still held from NA cars . I doubt for much longer though once you get one of these bad boys tuned .

        the time on that e63 is 12.08 and what a am saying is that their were 3 quicker 1/4 mile 211's than this car . there isnt a e63 documented less than a 11.8 . and i dont think we will every see a NA E63 below a 11.5 .


        why ask if you know the answer about the 10s ??

        Well I asked because clearly the E63 is going to be capable of what the M157 CLS63 is if not more. So, the top times will be M157 cars fairly quickly despite being on the market a shorter period of time.

        I believe so but not anybody going for drag times. The M157 and M156 battles are going to be interesting as well.

        The MB's are becoming a very nice German performance option. This M157 motor is going to do big things. It will make the N54 look like... well, let's not rile the kids up Click here to enlarge
