The Mercedes E55 AMG isn't exactly the latest or greatest high-performance sedan but that doesn't mean it's slow as one Nissan 350Z owner recently found out.

The Mercedes E55 AMG isn't exactly the latest or greatest high-performance sedan but that doesn't mean it's slow as one Nissan 350Z owner recently found out.

According to a poster on MBWorld, a Nissan 350Z owner started talking some smack about who had the fastest car.  This resulted in a supposedly impromptu drag race which was easily won by the E55 AMG despite the fact that it was towing a trailer with a John Deer tractor.

As a refresher, the E55 AMG has a supercharged 5.5-liter V8 engine that develops 469 bhp (349 kW) and 516 lb-ft (699 Nm) of torque.  It is connected to a five-speed automatic transmission which enables the sedan to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds.
