'14 Stingray vs '15 Benz S550

My brother has a 2015 Mercedes S550, twin turbo 450-ish horsepower. We have done some arm-chair racing, but have never actually tried it due to the idea of racing these two cars scares the heck out of us. I should have an advantage of simple power to weight, but man-o-man... I've ridden in that Benz and it seems to pin me back a lot harder than my Stingray does.

So who do you think would win?

It probably does feel that way; it has over 500 TQ at 1800 RPM (turbos!). But you should destroy that car. There is well over 1000 lbs of weight difference and nearly identical peak hp. The are limited to 130 mph and run about the same 1/4 mi. times as a stock 5th Gen SS Camaro.
