I would think the STi would win on just the straight away. Not sure about the track, but hey, I think it'd be close... right? hehehe.

In a straightway, maybe if you get a good launch, on the track he's done.

i think that it would beat it in straigh line accelerationa dn demolish it at the track.
i was able to beat one in my m3cab. i thought for sure i was gonna lose though. maybe i got lucky. hehe
i think the sti is just as fast or perhaps even faster than an m3 coupe

Depends completely on the driver. With 2 good drivers I think everyone is right, it's gonna be tough on the track.

the c32 amg would be tough to beat on a straight-away. what was hp, about 350hp right? they just had a comparison of the c32 amg and new audi s4 on speed channel and the c32 pulled a low 13 1/4 mile (~13.2 i think). but the c32 can't handle worth !!!!. they were getting very poor skidpad numbers and that car has all those nice gizmos that like to prevent you from having fun...

My wife drives a C32 and while we haven't raced, I can tell you that the C32 will own the STI stock-for-stock. First, the C32 is sooo easily to launch--don't gun it, just get the car rolling, and then hammer it. Power from the supercharged 6 is very smooth, and the auto tranny shifts at redline in the blink of an eye (I think it shifts gears in under .3 seconds!).

If you race your friend in the rain or snow, you'll take him, no problem, but on an open highway (the C32 has very good top end, too) or on a dry street, you've got a battle on your hands.

The only car that I have that will take the C32 is... my civic! :-)

Depends on the "chics"...

You'll pick up a lot of 16 to 25 year old chics. He'll pick up more 40+ year old chics.

RichQY,

I have driven a C32 on the track and the STi on the street.

Acceleration:

They are very close, both from magazine test data and seat of the pants. I think they would be neck to neck on the street.

Handling:

The C32 handle good considering it is a luxury 4-doors Mercedes, but can't compare to a dedicated sports car like the STi. The C32 understeer quite a bit. If your driving skill is as good as your friend, I am pretty sure you can beat him on the track.

Talking C32

C32 weighs at 3605 lbs.

Those look awesome, and I bet it drives nicely too.
But I never drove one.

but at the end of the day you will still have a japanese car with rattles and cheap plastics. don't get me wrong i do love the STI but with the MB you pay for what you get. it is a damn nice nachine which is very well built and still has a mean punch. it's like saying that the STI owns the 911 turbo because think of how fast the STI would be with a extra $100,000 under it's hood. not a good argument if you ask me.

Smile I know the SLK32 AMG would own

I can't speak from experience about the C32 AMG but I have driven and raced the SLK32 AMG (looks like a 230 kompressor but has the same motor as the C32 and is lighter ~3150 lb)...

Hands down I think the convertible would spank the STI as its only real competition down here in Texas is the Viper, Corvette & semi competition Cobra mustang....

BUT having seen how heavy the C32 is I would have to say the STI would win on the trac & street with a proficient shifter...


Good luck

I need an STi to keep up with my dad... he's owned the following cars at one time or another in the last 3 years.

M roadster
C32
E55
SLK55
Z06

now he's got a 2005 SL55 on order!

next year when I have my STi, I'll race him and see what results we get!

If that race is in a straight line at all you will not be seeing much of him
