(REPOST: Inside EVs)
We recently featured a drag race in which the Tesla Model S P100D took on some of Germany’s finest. Tesla handled some fierce competitors from the likes of BMW and Audi but one of Germany’s most lethal cars wasn’t on the track — the almighty Mercedes-AMG E63 S. So Top Gear decided to pit these two beasts against one another.
Could the Mercedes-AMG E63 S be a car that challenges this ludicrous competitor? Top Gear notes, “The Mercedes-AMG E63 S is a deeply, deeply fast car. I can’t express that enough. It’s a super saloon with astonishing reactions, phenomenal traction and epic torque from its 4.0-litre twin turbo V8. 604bhp and a vast 626lb ft of torque from 2,500-4,500rpm. That’s colossal, even for a car that weighs almost two tonnes.”
