The 5.0 really needs to step its game up. It needs at least 470 HP and 275+ tires to compete with the SS. The SS has outdone the GT this time, it feels like 2009 again when the GT had the 4.6.

The fact the E55 is an automatic gives him a large advantage. If you have good tires and can shift quickly it will be an interesting match.

AWD provides a great advantage on the 1/4 mile. Get yourself some drag radials and you will tie it up. I was able to shave 1.5 seconds off my time with drag radials only.

Unless one of your bolt-ons was nitrous, I see that win being the lack of your opponents driver skill, not the ability of the car. Assuming you had headers its roughly 400whp vs 500whp for the Zl1.

I have a hard time seeing a 6th gen 1LE beating a GT350, considering it was developed as a track oriented car aimed at the Z28. The 1LE will just be an add on to an SS.

looks like the A8 5.7 will give an L99 a run for its money. The 2016 SS will likely match the 392 though.
