Bone stock Mercedes-Benz C207 E550 Twin Turbo M278 Coupe runs a 12.4@115 1/4 mile at the MIR drag strip
Very impressive results here from a completely stock E550 coupe. The M278 4.6 liter twin turbo V8 is looking more and more impressive powering this particular vehicle belonging to BenzBoost member nawlinstornado to a firstname.lastname@example.org. That elapased time was achieved with the factory runflat Continental tires and no limited slip differential. The 1.961 60 foot can be improved tremendously with some real drag rubber meaning low 12's are realistically in this cars future stock.
Now, this was done at MIR (Maryland International Raceway) which is a fast track especially when the density altitude drops. It was -621 feet at the time of this run which is definitely a contributing factor to the great results. Regardless, these cars dyno in the 390 wheel horsepower range stock making them very potent and underrated. Now just imagine if Mercedes and AMG make an E63 AMG coupe with the M157 V8.
