Always wondered what these could do. Today I got to find out first hand. Heading home from the office, the driver gave it a bit of juice heading into a curve, I followed in kind. We played some cat and mouse but I’ll admit, the 560 had me beat. I only started to creep up at absurd speeds which I’ll not mention here… 🙂
My ride’s about 1000lbs lighter, and has about 100ft/lbs less of torque. Sure, I could chip the thing and make up the difference… But I don’t need to have the fastest car to be able to play.
There’s just something about 2 quality engineered German machines tearing ass through the countryside that gives me crazy ideas like going to Germany, renting a Porsche, taking on the Autobahn… hmmmm 🙂
