Looks like the weight here is wrong. The car is heavier. It weights around 4050 pounds / 1830 kg...

I would love to put a Zonda exhaust system on one of these similar motors.

well RWD,engine location:front and a lot of hp..i think you need to be careful with this car when driving fast..it\'s heavy and powerful..


User avatar

Apathy  10y ago

Oh, I know from experience that a W124 E-class would easily destroy a Seville on a track. The Seville handles like soap in a bucket of water, it\'s impossible to control.

I imagine this car handles very well.

golf1diesel  10y ago

ok man ,you won,but still the german car would own the american car on a track :D (the cars you mentioned).
And yes i know what you said about police tactics etc.
But we should stick to the topic though.

Sorry for the rant. I find misinformation and bias incredibly annoying.

This car is extremely nice. 190mph in the 90\'s is an amazing feat.

Crown Victorias aren\'t meant to be quick. They are meant to be durable and strong. Where I\'m from is irrelevant. Assuming you aren\'t from the USA, you wouldn\'t know that most police forces have cars designated for high speed pursuit other than the crown vic. You also wouldn\'t know that it\'s a police officer\'s job to stay within a safe distance of a high speed assailant and have a chopper follow overhead. One lunatic at 150+mph is more than enough. Police officers depend on their radio and road blocks to stop high speed chases. Actually, some states and counties have no chase policies entirely, to avoid possible innocent casualties.

Let\'s compare two similar cars from the same year. The 1994 Cadillac and 1994 E50 sedan.

Mercedes: http://autos.msn.com/research/vip/spec_Exterior.aspx?year=1994&make=Mercedes-Benz&model=E-Class&trimid=7117#trimsel

Seville: http://autos.msn.com/research/vip/spec_Exterior.aspx?year=1994&make=Cadillac&model=Seville&trimid=6587#trimsel

As you can see, both cars have a V8 but the Cadillac weighs less despite the fact that it\'s significantly larger.

Make no mistake, I\'d sooner own the E50 over the POS SLS, but it shows that American doesn\'t necessarily mean heavier.

EXCUSE me...Crown Vic wasn\'t meant to be quick? i saw a lot of videos on youtube and TV showing american police Victorias going FLATOUT in the highway..trying to catch criminals etc..the cars failed to catch anything but the radio won haha .Hey i bet you are american.Please don\'t get offended by my posts.I don\'t intend to offend you.

First of all, the 1997 Lesabre weighs 3441lbs. http://autos.msn.com/research/vip/spec_Exterior.aspx?year=1997&make=Buick&model=LeSabre&trimid=-1

As for the Crown Vic, it is a full size body on frame sedan. It's nearly 25 inches longer and 8 inches wider than the this car. It was also not meant to be quick, anymore than your diesel was meant to be quick.

There are lots of stigmas attached to American cars. Europeans love to use them to put down American cars day in and day out. I get it. Fact of the matter is, many of them are inaccurate. This is particularly true when you compare present day cars.

2005 Crown Victoria:4 speed automatic,V8 4600cc 224 hp 1873 kgs..=)) i bet if i chip my Golf it would be faster then the Cruiser :))


User avatar

golf1diesel  10y ago

yeah but the Seville is a V8 not a V12 ;) Buick le Sabre:2032 kgs year 1997


User avatar

Apathy  10y ago

A 1995 Cadillac Seville V8 is wider by 4 inches, longer by 17 inches and weighs less at only 3689lbs. Try again. ;)


User avatar

golf1diesel  10y ago

and the Merc doesn;t have 2 tons..300 kgs are a big difference..if it WAS an american car then 2000kgs would be possible haha


User avatar

golf1diesel  10y ago

oh shit my mistake :D i knew all big american cars are V8s forgot about V10:P


User avatar

Apathy  10y ago

@Golf

You do know that the Viper\'s 8.0L is a V10... Right?


User avatar

golf1diesel  10y ago

@Apathy actually there is an american V8 with 8000cc ;) 1992..VIPER r/T!!


User avatar

Apathy  10y ago

Yeah Golf, because a two ton sedan with a 7.3L V12 sips fuel.

The W124 E60 gets 15mpg highway. I can only imagine how poor this does.


User avatar

golf1diesel  10y ago

@Apathy i just can imagine the 40L/100 km or more fuel consumption :)))


User avatar

Apathy  10y ago

There was no 7.oL American V8 from 1975-2004 Fastestlaps.

But, there was the ZL1 7.0L in 1969 that was rated at 440hp but produced closer to 560hp. Lets also not forget the Ford cammer, a SOHC 7.0L available through Ford performance that made 616hp with a single four barrel carb and 656hp @ 7500rpms with two four barrel carbs and had a redline of 8000rpms in 1964.

But yeah, I guess 523hp from a 7.3L is kind of impressive.

golf1diesel  10y ago

chill man :P i said it reminds me because of the huge displacement .i know old american cars are shit.V6 and V8 engines with 4000cc barely beat my slow Golf haha


User avatar

FastestLaps  10y ago

It is anything BUT American 7.0 V8s of that era. It is DOHC 4 valve design. And makes 530 hp rather than 250 of 7 liter American V8.

This engine is the same as in Zonda.


User avatar

golf1diesel  10y ago

haha 7.3 reminds me of american V8s :P

please comment

I cannot really comment... This car leaves me speechless by just looking at the photos. A piece of heaven on wheels.


User avatar

ferrari_scuderia  10y ago

Someone need to update the displacement, it says 7300 liters.
I like W124 cars, although I prefer the two-doors type. 500+bhp is more than enough. Cool.
