I was driving down a basically deserted road when a young guy with a Nissan Altima V6(it was lowered and had a wing on the back and had oz rims)pulled up. He opened his window and revved and said(suprisingly)you wanna race?I just said sure and he said,Like you could beat me drivin that station wagon!!!I dont think he knew what it was because it was a dark and he was to busy bragging he didnt see the "540i"on the back.And he obviously didnt know i had 290 hp and 325 pound feet of torque under the hood.The light was red and i didnt bother revving because i wanted to give him a surprise.i got in steptronic,the light turned green and we just floored it,i was immediatly ahead of him at start because he had no torque and about 5 seconds later i saw him get a little closer,but after about 65 mph he was quickliy fading wayay,i got up to about 100 and then stopped at a red light and soon enough,he came up right behind my car and seemed to be studying the 540 on the back of my car.Hes was like ddaaammmnn,how much hp you got in that.i told him.i think he learned his lesson.Not all wagons are slow.

Either way they're just a great looking car - glad you toasted him though.

I've only been a passenger in a 540 (with a very slow driver) and would love the opportunity to thrash the shit out of one one day.

Nice kill. I love the 540. but the v6 Altima does have torque. 246 ft lbs to be exact (which matches the HP).
