    car and driver comparo

    to E55 and M5. They say some really nice things, but it concerns me still about the handling (got beat around the track badly by a Charger SRT8, which is the same set up I have now. I don't want to go backwards).

    I like that they got it 0-60 in 4.6 and spoke very nicely about the interior..

    It says CLS55 with E55 powertrain.. very nice!

    "In any case, the two Germans are formidable: the Mercedes CLS55 AMG, with its potent E55 powertrain, and the latest BMW M5, generation four in a line that dates to 1984."

    Yeah, that sure isn't an E55. I mean, the CLS front looks very very different then the E55. Not to mention, half way down the page it lists the 3 vehicles in the comparison, one being the CLS55. Why would Mercedes send Car and Driver another E55 to test. They allready did a direct head to head with the M5 when it first came out and the M5 won. Even tho the AMG was quite bit quicker in a straight line.

    I love the fact the STS-V came second. Little surprised actually, as both other competitors are very established in their respective fields. Can't wait to take the new V fora spin.
