Could it have been the C230 Kompressor?



It has a supercharged 2.3 L inline 4 with 192 hp @ 5,500 rpm and 200 lb/ft of torque @ 2,500 - 4,800 RPM

0-60 = 7.2 secs (6-speed)
7.5 secs (5-speed auto)

E320 is not kompressor or supercharged in english, hehehe......

E320 is not that fast, so you should have a chance with it. But in residential area, it's not a wise thing to do. Kids might just pop out from nowhere in front of the car, and kaboom!

The C230

came in 4 door before the coupe came out. They started in96 or 97, and the current coupe uses that engine. Mercedes doesn't make a supercharged v6. Renntech maybe? But most of them I've seen r v8,

What he means is that kompressor is a supercharger. I don't know if it means supercharger in German or it's just a type of charger, but anyway that's what it is. The only blown benzes in existence are C-Class and SLKs. The 320 is a 3.2L V6, but I don't think those ever came supercharged, just the 4 cylinders.

Just thought of something else...
The kompressor could have just been a sticker. You know, like Honda Accord TypeR or something like that. It's common knowledge that those things add at least 5HP, to the wheels. ;)

Haha, I wouldn't be surprised if he did, or maybe he just jacked it off some other benz. People these days aren't too creative:p

Actually....

The AMG C320 and AMG SLK320 are both supercharged. RennTech, Kellner, Lorinser, and other Mercedes tuners sell supercharger kits for the for the C/SLK 320.
