M3 vs E55 AMG...Which is faster?

Anybody driven the older model E class AMG? The E55 not the E63. Just curious as to which one is faster in the quarter mile and off the line

The E55 is faster than the E46 M3. At the beginning you pull ahead of the E55, but when the E55 picks up speed, it will blow past the M3. I have raced many E55's and it is the same story....i have always lost.

With the new M3, it may be closer, but I still think the E55 is faster.

Please note that I am talking about E55 being faster on the street...not the racetrack.

So what you are saying is if my mother-in-law were in an E55 and raced me in my E46 M3 she'd pwn me? My penis just shrunk. But that's ok, it's still the biggest one here.

I recall the 0 - 60 times for the E55 were around the same for those reported for the E9x M3s, viz in the low to mid 4 second range. I'd like to see a drag race between these two.

E55 guys tend to think their cars are a touch quicker than the E63s, presumably because of the torque advantage.

I have no direct knowledge.

some of the CLK55's do not have the kompressor ... is this the 4 pipe CLK55??? ... i raced a 2 pipe non kompressor CLK55 cabrio against my 335i cabrio and murdered him, it would have been a different story on the highway if it was the kompressor version.

my runs with my E46 M3 against a E55, off a line the M3 is quicker but after some time around the 140-160km/h (what i can recall) mark the E55 comes for you, and boy does it come for you verrrrrry quickly ... the other day my friend with his m3 cabrio E46 ran against an E55 from the line, that was murder by the E55 from the line, that car is quick, the poor m3 cabrio stood no chance what so ever .... so i still think the E55 will be quicker on a quarter mile sprint, BUT thats all an E55 is good for ... a straight line, in fact all AMG mercs! ...

wow i gotta see that to believe that....

in reality guys the e92 m3 is not that fast...

it is not like the e46... the e46 m3 came out in 01 and murdered everything in its time around a track and drag...

i am really disappointed with the new m3's performance but you can argue against its styling

i think its more that the E46 did not have much competition, E92 does ...

without a doubt we need new CSL , new M3 is bigger and heavier now, it doesnt stand a chance against AMGs and their huge tourqe..I was watching a drag race between new 7 Alpina and CLK 63 AMG Black Series , The 7 got the jump on the clk but later clk was faster in straight line , also M3 CSL vs SL 55 AMG...guess what , the SL lost pretty good..
M3 = heavy car , needs more than 420hp and the answer is CSL , I hope this arrives soon

The one thing all AMG's have is HUGE torque....more HP doesn't hurt either..... they rated the CLS55-E55 at between 469-493hp....so they clearely have more HP....516 ftlb or torque is almost double the M3 too..... I would be afraid of any 55 AMG in a straight line.....add curves and braking.... I'm not worried at all!!

CLS63 maybe faster but not that faster. 0-200 in 15.4, DCT can definitely beat that. I've also seen 15.1 from the CLS. Only time will tell and a couple of drag races...

E55 is a low 12 second >115mph 1/4 mile car(Motor trnd)
M3 is mid to high 12 second car 110-112mph 1/4 car(Motor trnd).
.3-.6 seconds @ 115mph is about 5-8 car lengths(assuming a 16-foot car).

Mind you the E55 is gaining speed on the M3.

They are different animals for different purposes. I would be honored to have either one in my garage :-)

From what I hear the E55 is faster to the 1/4 but the E63 is faster at higher speeds.
