i agree i checked and they are only 97 times better:smoking:
Not under pinning the vf, its a nice car for sure but heres just one small example....
I assume the vf has the same rest reminder as the ve (?). You know the coffee cup that comes up on the screen after the engine has been running for 2 and a half hours...
Engine running, 2.5 hours = coffee cup signal.
Now look at mbz fatigue assist.... (30 second vid)
See the difference? 100 times better!! (Also note, this is 4 years old)
Getting of topic i know....
Anyone expecting AMG refinement from a tarted up taxi with a big donk is going to be disappointed. Anyone expecting a barrel of fun from a tarted up taxi with a big donk is going to love it. Personally I'd never buy a new or late model AMG/M/RS Audi because I hate cars that have more smarts than me and cost more to maintain than my wife. That's why I'll always stick with older, simpler cars I can wrench on myself, and turn them into what I want them to be. Sadly I have other priorities at the moment.
So nothing built after 1988 then?
Haven't you just described an AMG C63, E63, S63 & S65?
Haha, my thoughts exactly!
Hmm, this just arrived in my email as a result of my Wheels magazine subscription:
Some probable-speculation and likely-conjecture wrapped as fact
The two main points:
(*) HSV are doing a GTS-R but it'll be a tweaked LSA
(*) the LS9 "Final Edition" HSV is something different again
Really ? I need to give my car some coffee every 2.5 hours or it will run off the road ..... very annoying.
The Corvette Z06 hasn't had the old Gen IV LS9 engine for years, I didn't even think they were making LS9's any longer?
The current Z06 has the Gen V LT4 supercharged engine...
2017 Corvette Z06 Supercar | Chevrolet
The Z06 never had the LS9 it had the LS7, the LS9 was used in the ZR1 .
Ah okay, so the ZR1 used to be the supercharged version, that must have changed because the Chevrolet website that I linked earlier definitely says the current Z06 is supercharged...
Yeah it looks like the model lineup has changed, the Corvette Stingray and Grand Sport have the naturally aspirated 6.2L Gen V LT1, and the Z06 has the supercharged Gen V LT4 engine. It appears they've dropped the ZR1 model, which is why I was confused.
Anyway, that just further illustrates that the LS9 hasn't been used for years, I'm sure I read that they're no longer manufactured because the changed to the Gen V engines?
Yes there is no ZR1 in the current C7 Corvette range, the ZR1 badge tends to be reserved for a ultra performance version of the Corvette whenever GM feels like building one, the Z06 tends to be a regular production option, the last ZR1 was a C6.
While the LS9 is not used in any current GM vehicle its still being produced and readily available as a crate engine from GM if you have about 20k US floating around.
According to GM each LS9 was hand built by a single engine builder for the C6 ZR1 Corvette only, so if it does happen, the Commodore will be the only car other than the ZR1 to come out with a LS9.
Sure the LT4 in the current C7 Z06 now produces a bit more power than the LS9 (485kw vs 476kw) it's hardly a boat anchor and I assume the gen V would not be a easy dropin to the Commodore.
