Same power to weight, but the C55 is faster :cringe: how is the STR an E55 rival?

Its close enough where other things about the car can be more important for the buying decision than performance. Both are V8, both are similar size and both probably cost similar money. That's close enough.

Probably S-type is much heavier. 1800 kg was XKR weight of that time.
