    • World's fastest Mercedes-Benz (Weistec supercharged built motor supercharged CLK63 Black Series) versus Gintani supercharged DCT M3

      This is a race... of sorts. It shows the difference between a fast car and a really fast car. The Gintani supercharged DCT M3 is a quick car by any stretch of the imagination capable of turning ~130 mile per hour 1/4 mile trap speeds and providing 600 horsepower to the wheels. Definitely fast. But the Mercedes it runs against here happens to hold the record for the World's Fastest Mercedes-Benz with a trap speed of 144 miles per hour. In other words, a mismatch.


      The W209 CLK63 AMG Black Series belongs to BenzBoost member @ecampbell . In race trim it puts out 837 horsepower to the wheels thanks to its 3.0 liter blower and built internals. Very strong, very fast.

      In the video it is said to not be running full power but it is on race gas so make your guess as to the output. Regardless, the potential disparity is about 240 wheel horsepower (although likely more due to the M3 being on 91 octane and no meth) and around 14+ miles per hour of trap speed. It shows in the video. For a more interesting race it will take a built motor and bigger blower M3. BimmerBoost happens to know of one.

      Enjoy the video.

        clk ahead by 10 car lengths after the first 10 seconds.
        Ya the stock internal cars won't be a match for you. You will need to run mine.

        Not a bad run at all, it was pretty much no competition.

        So yours is running now? We can do a 60 - 200 run.

        Wagdaddy, my comment was simply to show the first run had the clk out front which was not mentioned in the original post. You knew you were overmatched before the start and you knew it so all good...no disrespect from me. The x-pipe didn't blow from my car as I don't have one (my race exhaust was on).

        For the record I have a full interior and the weight of the roll cage far out weight the race seats.

        I don't think going to 200 is necessary to compare the cars and I won't do that on public roads but it's almost ready. Should be fun.

        They don't make that kind of power on stock motors.

        Again, no worries and was told you are class act. My car always runs with race gas. The last tank of pump gas was Aug 2011 when we drove out to Vegas.

        Joe, I will be there from 30 Jan to 2 Feb.

        Tight fit but it's possible. We'll see, I prefer not to set a date as it's always missed...

        Blah blah blah. I live in Italy/london, fly out to LA and drive my car for three hours and then fly back and you are worried about getting to my place in Florida? Tell you what, you bring out the vivid girls and I will ship your piece out.

        My bad and I stand corrected. The boys were out testing a prototype exhaust which didn't work out so wel. Real world testing...

        i do however stay on record that the car has a full interior and is at full weight.

        no worries man, its good to see companys who arent afraid to get out there and have fun and test there products. and i guess full interiors in these cars is basically just two seats anyways right? dont most the black series come with carbon fiber rear seat delets or something. i just assumed from the cage i saw and the recaros and how small the car is that there was no way there were rear seats back there. but like i said, i know very little about mercs. either way though, full interior or not, your car with that much power wouldnt notice an extra 200lbs one way or the other lol
