    well we were at a set of lights where you turn left at the light and I was on the outside. The light turned green and we both accelerated I was surprised and on the turn he had the lead being on the inside however I was able to close the distance but I was very surprised how fast the car was.

    Now that I looked up the car I'm less surprised with it having a twin turbo with 621hp and 738tq at 259,000 bucks. I could of beat him but I was not willing to drive recklessly as the driver was over the top.

    I just thought it would be interesting to know some other cars out there.

    It would be an interesting race for sure... All things equal, you would pull on him. Both cars being limited to traction it's a driver's race.

    Same thing happened to me with a Maserati. We hit in on a long road and I was pulling on him big time but wasn't willing to keep it up when traffic was approaching. This knucklehead kept on it passing me and swerved through the cars like a madman. no thank you!.... but I got him :rolleyes:

    We have a 2014 E63 4matic, supposedly 551 HP but in reality 571, read my comparison in the Caitlyn Jenner thread, that will sum up each car

    Now do not under any circumstances post any video of stop light wars because the car was not designed for that. Do not worry about the other guy, listen to the exhaust and supercharger whine, speed or acceleration was not what engineers at SRT worried about.
