Damn I hate streaming videos especially when theyre nice videos like this. I prefer to download them outright.

No offense to you, 1day.

Not Murcie vs Zonda F, but Murcie vs Zonda C12 S.

I have that video, it toally rocks. Its the first episode of the revised Topgear. I caught the first day first show in India, lol.

And, much to my dismay, the Zonda wins that race by a country mile, and loses the track test troo.

Honours are restored to the Lambo later, though, when a track re-test of the Murcielago reveals a time better by about 6 seconds.

You can buy create engines from AMG...they always make more engines than they make cars, because of possibility of bad engines...

also what i dont understand is..why he didnt goto brabus? they could have tuned his SLK55 AMG engine to be quicker than the SLKR???

also the cost of the engine and the car and installs was a little more than 1/4 of the cost of SLR, can you imagine, in 140-150k (thats it!!) less than an SL65, he got a car to beat the Enzo...now thats awesome...

abviously brabus would have taken 120k just for the engine alone, so it would have costed him more..but this made it just more exclusive and gave the car an edge..awesome cars..

i have seen the ELR ??

^^^ Cool .... but from what i understand is that he has his own group of 'trained professional' engineers. He manages a performance tuning workshop there in Dubai - Bin Sulayem Performance .... so doing all this work on these cars ie installing the engines and then modding them to handle the astronomical power produced by the SLR engine, he definately is making a name for himself .... u know how these Shiekh's are ... i just love the way they think ...

Read all about this fanatstic piece of machine here : SLK55 SLR - Bin Sulayem Performance

Also, if im not mistaken, this sheikh is the same 'Rally Sheikh' who was once interviewed by Jeremy Clarkson for his show JC's Motorworld. They showed that then this person had the Ferrari F50, F40 Jaguar XJ220, some badass Porsche ....

That is kick *** performance.....Im still wondering how that car would handle around a track....

To be fair to the Enzo he is revvving it to between 4000 - 6000 RPM.

They have also done the same with an E55 AMG.....it has a special limited slip diff and also the slr intercooler has been modified for better cooling to run more power.
