Had an interesting and exhilarating drive today from Baton Rouge to Houston. 2014 Silver CC passed me with a BMW Z4 M coupe trailing at about 90 mph.
So I watched them for a min then decided why not join in on the fun. Caught up with the Bimmer and she was being cautious just cruising at 90 but the CC had pulled
away and was steadily widening the gap. Well I have a 2012 Deep Metallic BLK R-line 2.0T 6 spd DSG who's engine is bone stock so I decided to catch this guy and see which was fastest on top end.
Those of you familiar with the 4 lane stretch of hwy between Beaumont and Houston know it's a great place to get your car up well over 100mph with relative ease with minimal chance of being zapped by radar. So I get in behind the 2014 CC2.0T (love the new tail lights and new LEDS by the way) and then pull along side and just drop the hammer. 110, 115, 120, 125, 130.... 131Mph. I look over and the 2014 is about two cars back in the left lane and not gaining an inch. I have just over 30K on my 2012 so it's apparent either my aero dynamics were better or my car was jsut better broken in. I have pushed it to the limiter on more than a few occasions. Just wondering if they moved the limiter down because I always heard it was 130Mph on the CC's. All blk 2012 CC R-line wins this one!
