IS THE NEW MERCEDES-AMG E63 S AN ACTUAL PORSCHE KILLER. WATCH THIS DRAGE RACE TO FIND OUT. 🚦💨
Usually when you’re talking about comparing a Porsche to anything, the names of Ferrari or Lamborghini are brought up because they were the only ones capable of ever holding a candle to the mighty Porsche.
However it seems the mad scientists and engineers at Mercedes-AMG think they too are worthy to take on the challenge.
The specs of the Mercedes-AMG E63 S and Porsche Panamera Turbo are rather similar. Both are all-wheel drive, twin-turbo V8 German luxury sedans with enough power to rip your face off, and smoke almost every other car on the road. Sure, they might look different, but on paper, they're almost identical. Almost.
The E63's 603-horsepower V8 has a 53-horsepower bump over the Panamera's engine, giving it a slight edge in power. Additionally, it has 60 more lb.-ft. of torque. Those advantages, along with some short gearing, are enough to beat out the almighty Porsche four-door in a drag race, find out in the video below.
