Merc AMG vs Superbike Part 2! [video]



Quote:
As Carthrottle.com points out, itís been a pretty good week for fans of the Mercedes-Benz AMG brand. Last week we watched with amazement as the rider of a Yamaha R1 struggled to keep pace with a speeding Merc SL63 AMG and this week its the turn of a C63 wagon to show some impressive pace while having an R1 superbike in its mirrors. - See more at: http://www.carmagblog.co.za/video/me....MYKstkx9.dpuf
I want an AMG, like now!!!

The rider doesn't keep the bike in the power band. These sort of superbike have no torque, you have to rev them like a maniac to get power. Anytime he is under 11k rpm he is not pulling as he should.

That's true, but the AMGs are incredible pulling machines anyway.
