An SLS amg black series could've been even more quicker if it was an AWD ( all weel drive ) but thanks to Mercedes for an SLS black series , its such an admirable machine

fakekiller, 180 kph is 112 mph, so 110 mph times are too optimistic and should not be added as 180 kph times.

The allowed substitution are:

0-50 mph as 0-80 kph, as 80 kph equals:49.709 mph and 50 mph is actually more than the kph equivalent.

I am not going to delete all the 0-130, 0-180 and 0-50 kph times based on mph tests, which are already added.

But I suggest not to add them in future. Lets be more precise! There are plenty of European tests with plenty of accurate 130, 180, 50 etc times which are yet to be added!

Somewhat, But no.

Lets just say I work for a company that, Offers clients who can afford them, certain benefits, And its My job to show the clients who are interested, a "Good" time, That way they do business with us. And a lot of them are EXTREMELY paid, That's one of the reasons I get to enjoy some of these rather expensive cars. You don't se these people rolling up in Kia Rios.. But id rather not go into full detail about what I do.

I'm sure a stock broker would have a lot of rich clients XD

@BR2

What is your job anyway given that you talk about clients who can afford expensive cars?

Or a better question, what is everyones job?

I'm still in school educating myself as a car mechanic


User avatar

BR2+  9y ago

Ive been able to get behind the wheel of an SLS due to a client owning one...And it is no easy car to control by any means, These things are Tyre Murder, And I would expect the BlackSeries to timex that by a few.


User avatar

saxy  9y ago

every drive talks about this car having less torque than the standard SLS, so it is easier to control. But because it's lighter... actually, torque/weight, it's actually more torque to handle

My friend did 10.4 @ 132 in a stock Black Series at a dragstrip on original tires. Unfortunately, no video. :(

While I know full well that drag strips improve traction, I have a hard time believing that one. You realize to get that type of ET with that trap speed he would of had to pull a 1.5X 60 foot time, which is unheard of on a regular street tire.

I dont think so. And i dont agree that 911 Turbo has better 0-60 time than the Aventador. They are pretty qual.


User avatar

saxy  9y ago

1600kg is considerably less than the aventador. The Porsche has a better launch 0-60, as well the Porsche is a whole lot smaller and aerodynamic than the big Lambo.

If the Porsche had 620hp, it would hit 200kph under 9 seconds guaranteed. But it doesn't =)


User avatar

dddd  9y ago

@Saxy i dont agree. 600 hp/1600 kg and 0-200 in less than 9s ?

Havent you heart that Porsche downplays power figures ? Everyone hearts that.

Hehe i dont want a dragster :) but in my opinion F12 should be faster.

Yes, 212 kph!

I have heart that 997 Turbo has for real about 545 hp, 997 Turbo S about 580 hp. How much has 991 Turbo S ? I think about 620 hp.

If any Porsche turbo had nearly 600hp with AWD PDK launch, it would hit 200kph under 9seconds. For now, it still takes 10 seconds, so no chance. A Ferrari 458 with 570hp, with a much slower 0-100kph time (down nearly 1/2 a second) gets to 200kph under 10 seconds. The Porsche has a ton of torque but it's certainly not overachieving its power figures really.

Hoping for a 10.8 @ 127. :D


User avatar

saxy  9y ago

you keep saying the F12 doesn't have enough power, yet every journalist who HAS driven the car says it has too much.

If you want a dragster, get a dragster.


User avatar

dddd  9y ago

That is why F12 achieved bad acceleration's times.

I wait for good times. But it is boring...


User avatar

Hamcee  9y ago

weird video.
no launchcontrol, manual shifting.

doesnt really show the complete potential of the car


User avatar

dddd  9y ago

I have heart that 997 Turbo has for real about 545 hp, 997 Turbo S about 580 hp. How much has 991 Turbo S ? I think about 620 hp.

Ofcourse im not satisfied with F12's result. F12 should have much better 1 km time. 18,8-19,2s. I heart that factory claim is less than 19s with over 290 km/h. That would be sensational. Autocar's result is absolutly decent.

I also heart that Ferrari will make some improvements in F12. It definitely needs more power. We will see. F12's performance definitely dont meet fans expectations.


User avatar

saxy  9y ago

@dddd, the Porsche does have a smaller body AND a lower cd friction due to the engine being in the back (the least drag), and the SLS, in the front (the most drag)


User avatar

dddd  9y ago

Now it is pretty obvious that 991 Turbo S has for real much more than 560 hp. SLS Black Series has 630 HP. There is no way in hell that 560 hp AWD car that is heavier has the same 1km trap speed like 631 HP RWD car.

SLS Black Series is a monster.

Imo 991 Turbo S has for real about 600-630 hp.

@Lafars

Whenever I go to a drag with my car, Its never on a drag strip, There practically all at either a Drag event at a runway, Or just me an a few colleagues. Im no dragger, more of a everyday circuit mate, Nor are mine set to drag, But since it was about a drag in the video. That's why I mentioned it, Hell even the driving roads here aren't as dusty as that one.

@ddd

No, My Mazda doesn't have close to 900Bhp, doesn't even have 7, But unless ones in a LaFerrari, Its not gonna get beat.
