The latest issue of the German car magazine Auto Motor und Sport (AMS) has a comparison between 5 +300 km/h cars. They are all non modified

production cars:

Aston Martin Vanquish

Ferrari 550 Maranello

Lamborghini Murciélago

Mercedes SL55 AMG (unlimited version, a DM 3000 option)

Porsche GT2

They test the cars at the Italian high speed track Nardo (where you don't have any centrifugal force on the car when doing 240km/h). They test

acceleration 0-100km/h, 0-200km/h, 0-300km/h and topspeed.

The results are surprising:

0-100 km/h:

Aston Martin Vanquish 5.6 s

Ferrari 550 Maranello 4.7 s

Lamborghini Murciélago 3.6 s

Mercedes SL55 AMG 4.6 s

Porsche GT2 4.0 s

0-200 km/h:

Aston Martin Vanquish 17.4 s

Ferrari 550 Maranello 14.6 s

Lamborghini Murciélago 11.4 s

Mercedes SL55 AMG 13.7 s

Porsche GT2 13.1 s

0-300 km/h:

Aston Martin Vanquish 55.0 s

Ferrari 550 Maranello 61.2 s

Lamborghini Murciélago 34.2 s

Mercedes SL55 AMG 32.5 s

Porsche GT2 40.9 s

Top speed:

Aston Martin Vanquish 316 km/h

Ferrari 550 Maranello 306 km/h

Lamborghini Murciélago 330 km/h

Mercedes SL55 AMG 325 km/h

Porsche GT2 315 km/h

The Mercedes Sl55 AMG (with automatic transmission and tons of extra options) is the fastest car to 300 km/h and only slower in top speed than the

twice as expensive Lamborghini...

Weight of the cars:

Aston Martin Vanquish 1863 kg

Ferrari 550 Maranello 1732 kg

Lamborghini Murciélago 1819 kg

Mercedes SL55 AMG 1974 kg

Porsche GT2 1446 kg

CW value:

Aston Martin Vanquish 0.34

Ferrari 550 Maranello 0.33

Lamborghini Murciélago 0.33

Mercedes SL55 AMG 0.29

Porsche GT2 0.34
