E550 coupe

Leaving the grocery store tonight, I pulled out of the parking lot behind a black e550 coupe he turned onto the interstate and so did I. I don't know if he had some type of performance exaust but all of a sudden he gunned it, and I must tell you that car looked and sound ABOSOLUTLY AMAZING. All I could say in my car was DAMN THAT THING IS FAST. When I got home (so excited I left the groceries in the car) I got on the Internet an researched the e550 coupe and I found out that thing is 382 hp and guess what it's naturally aspirated. I'm no thinking about getting one has anyone ever driven on are the fast, from the way that guy took off on the interstate I think it is.

I had an '07 S550 with the same engine and it was pretty remarkable. I can only imagine in that smaller body how that car would fly. I do remember however, how much I missed BMW every time I got into the canyons.

The 382hp is the '10 and '11 models. For 2012 they changed the engine to a bi-turbo V8 that makes 402hp. I haven't driven the new engine, but my dad has a '11 e550 sedan and that NA 5.5L engine is really awesome. The coupe might be smaller, faster, and more agile, but it still won't handle like your 335i.
