    I had a 04 E55, and that sucker was fast. Never got into it with a CTS-V, but I don't see the CTS having much of a chance stock for stock. I'm not going to get into tuning, because both can be tuned to an insane amount.

    The 09 CTS-V, won't be touched by anything Benz has to offer, except for the SLR and the CLK DTM.

    Re: Mercedez E55 vs V

    the other day on a fairly open road.. I saw a car coming slowly, then fast in my rearview, he noticed me and punched it. I knew it was mercedes by the grill but not e55 AMG- until he got past me. I caught back up momentarily due to car in distance in left lane. he slowed down, back up and blew past me again although I was pulling very hard. I have no mods but was still suprised. 1st car since I got the V to run with me at any high speed. they are fast.

    Hmm, explain how 412rwhp runs dead even with a stock SRT-10 Viper or does your signature need a big upgrade? If you're close to an E55/E60 M5, the Viper will walk you.

    I'll be very curious to see how that car performs. 4400lbs, 550hp and manually shifted (no DCT or AMT - dual clutch or automated manual trannys). On the road circuit, the weight and weight distribution will kill it.

    I think the 1st gen. CTS-V is one of the best overall packages around. Even makes the new G8 seem questionable.

    I know this thread's old, but the SAME thing happened to me. the E55 was the first car to pull on me since I got my V. Right on the New Jersey Parkway right out of a tollbooth. I couldn't believe it for a minute until he went by me and I saw it was an AMG. guy even waved as he was passing me. taste of my own medicine i guess haha.
