Re: Cars With V8 Engines. by yarimo(m): 11:34pm On Dec 05, 2018

lexus LS
lexus GS4XX
lexus SC
infiniti M45 and Q45
benz E, C and S anything starting from 4xx and AMG4X

Are these ones not regarded as the off-road vehicles? I am talking about V8 on sedan cars.

Well ur topic says 'cars' and not 'sedans'. Anyway there's no need for v8 engines on sedans except for performance cars and full size luxury cars. Even some of the new generation full size luxury sedans like Lexus LS have ditched the v8 for turbo charged v6.

Ah, boda Nurey what are you saying? Isn't that the GTR's engine? It has a twin turbo on Godzilla na, that's cheating.

Also, most AMG's are now twin turbo V6's.

I beg to differ
Merc's 4XX don't really mean 4.Xl engines like before
The C400, C450, GLE400, GLE450, C43 Amg and GLE 43 Amg are all turbocharged V6.
NB: the above mentioned vehicles are not just the merc models with such naming system, the E, GLS, GLC, SLC and co are all part of the family
And also
Your first statement
That engine is the one in the GTR and it will not beat the AMG v12 in the Zonda F and the huayra, google is your friend
It might take the lead from 0-60 or in a quarter mile race, anything beyond that Nissan go park for one side

Yes they're not really common cos large luxury sedans are not common as are used by a few
Which makes the V8 uncommon in sedans.
Except for the performance based sedans that are on our roads, most motorists prefer cars with small engines that equate to less headache and also they don't need all that power.
But they do exist and are quite plenty

I gave that benz size because of the popular ones on the road, I am talking about popular vehicles not interested in all the vehicle classes as you can see I didn't mention the American cars.

now to your second statement I have not said the VR38DETT is the best engine in the world but it has a better rep and has won many awards compared to your V12 fitted in AMG. I don't have strength of comparing any benz engine to the VR when we talk of V12 engines we mention ferrari, lamborghini, Porsche, Ford GT fitted engines, engines that are in the 3.0secs and below.

Also the VR is a very old engine produced in 2007 respect your elder please benz fan boy

Also race isn't determined by top speed if it was the Ford GT would be the best car in the world. The fastest and best benz currently is the 2018 E63s it is still no match for a stock 2013 GTR. Benz never beat BMW M series una wan pitch am to nissan GTR grin clowns

Lol, pipe down. The GTR was literally built for launches, it's still pretty good at that but it's not the king it was in 2007. A P100D would eat it for breakfast on the 1/4.

It would be a shame if the GTR wasn't faster than the E63s. The E63s is a big sedan, lol. Weight-power ratio, my friend. Let your GTR go against a CLK GTR, let's see how it goes. grin grin

Also, calm down, Mercedes has been trashing BMW M cars for the past couple of years.

Porsche?
V12?
Really?
There are no popular V12 porsches except for the 3512 engine which had so many problems from inception
Even the F12 engine was not popular
Also, c63 is better than m3
But the e60m5 is better than the w211 Amg
F10 vs w212
I think not
Also the pagani Zonda F and huayra are V12 cars below 3.0s

The E55 AMG was faster than the E60 M5, I believe. E63 was slower, though. The E55 had more torque than the E63 but less hp, making the E55 a launch god. Had like 600 ft-lbs of torque or something ridiculous. Supercharger power.

stop making me laugh please the Zonda or huayra are 4 secs vehicle running the benz m120 or m2xx made from 1997 and improved upon. The best with 6xxhp propelled the car in 4 secs this cars are not even top 20, even top 30 fastest cars. No need derailing please try again

Baba in 2017 a GTR beat a 2017 V8 biturbo AMG SLS. I also told you the fastest benz off the line now is the 2018 E63s no other class whether CLS, C, SLk, CLK can match an E63s

The GTR isn't king again has nissan refused to upgrade but saying a benz will beat GTR just because it is a benz is what infuriates me

It's engine is the 6.2l v8

Benz fan boy how market. I have never said the GTR will beat everything thrown at it, I only said with its V6 engine it will humble V12 cars in its categories.

The benz I am talking about is the GTR not SLS that was a mistake and the GTR is faster than it off the line and quarter mile.

The Benz 2017 GTR V8 biturbo vs GTR Nismo 2013 even though the benz has more hp the GTR was able to out run it due to its AWD setup and launch control. The video is "world greatest drag race 7" go and confirm my words there.

Also there is no benz quick off the line than the GTR for now
