Not so fast my friend. I'm supposed to be painting so I could only check the first source that came up in my search but the figures from Motor Trend are:

Mercedes E55 AMG
0-60: 4.1secs
0-100: 10.0secs
12.3 sec @ 113.8 mph
9.6 lb/hp

BMW M3 DCT (only one they had full figures for)
0-60: 4.1secs
0-100: 9.7secs
12.6 sec @ 113.2 mph
8.9 lb/hp

This hows that at the 1/4 mile the E55 has pulled away by a whopping 0.3secs and 0.6mph. Hardly way faster I think? In fact all the way to 100mph the M3 is ahead. And considering the handling advantage the M3 has I think I know which one I'd choose.

Doesn't matter to me either way but I had suspicions that the E55 wasn't as fast as people were making out.
