but.....

you gotta bear in mind that even the AMG mercs ae electronically limited to 155mph.....  and the bikes were showing 165mph (270kph) apppx....  

 

but thats usually only a fuse or a quick plug to a laptop to sort that one  ;) 

i once raced a M5 beemer up the A14 between bury n cambridge, it was close on speed from 100-150... then he had to move over or id roll off as the limiter on the car cuts in...

Fookin hell

I held my old R6 (same model and colour as that one) wide open like that once down an empty dual track. Bouncing off the limiter in 6th.. Fook me what a rush but would I bollox do it when theres all that traffic around!

Must be loopy lol.. Bet he pooped it a bit when it appeared to die on him near the end... Imagine if it blew at that speed..... Messy....:blink:

cb....

tbh.. the AMG might have a slight edge on rolling acceleration ie 60-100etc.. but as i posted above, they are limited to 155mph top end.. so most 600+ sports bike will win the top speed battle..

The car has...

"performance package"which surely includes de-restricting it.Slight edge on rolling acceleration? It just fecked off and left them several times.

even with

performance package... there is a "gentlemans agreement" between govts and manufacturers that top speed will be 155mph regardless... theres a few 'hypercars' that dont subscribe to these.. but the major manufacturers all stick to it.. ie, BMW, Mercedes etc..

Gentlemans agreement ..

as they come out of the factory.You can pay at dealerships or aftermarket specialists to have the restriction removed.That car was much,much faster than either of those bikes.
