Do you think that car had close to 500 crank hp? I don't.
fwiw, most of them are on MBWorld. They are running stock. You can ask them yourself. There are others others with bolt-ons or tunes who post their times, too (check on draglist for the modded AMGs)
Better yet do a search on MBWorld and get the recent times from Fomoso back in Jan and Feb; there were two rentals/runs. Lots were stock, some not.
There was somebody who's been banned from here (and just about every other forum) that ran his M3 with only bolt-ons and MT rubber at the same meet. He had some launching problems and didn't post any good times. But he had posted some times that were kinda close in the past but no cigar.
Having AMGs with auto trannies worked against him.
These are different cars altogether anyway. German autobahn style muscle car versus a German back road style sport sedan.
But I'll run my stock E63 against a stock M3 in a 1/4 at the track.
