Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 Vs Audi RSQ8-R ABT

Pitting the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 in a drag race against the Audi RSQ8-R ABT is beyond our range of normal understanding, but just for the fun of it, the video here shows the result that we already expect.

Courtesy of the Royalistiq YouTube channel, we see the G63 AMG 6×6 racing the tuned RSQ8-R under the rain. Of course, the four rings prevailed over the three-pointed star here regardless of the road condition because it has a more powerful output and lighter body.

The G63 AMG 6×6 is equipped with a 5.5-liter twin-turbo engine with 537 hp and 562 lb-ft of torque. It has an all-wheel-drive system and seven-speed automatic transmission. Its massive frame has a curb weight of 9,050 lbs but it can go from 0 to 60 mph in 7.8 seconds with a top speed of 130 mph.

On the other hand, the RSQ8-R ABT is fitted with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine capable of reaching up to 740 hp and 679 lb-ft of torque. Even the standard version of the hatchback already has 600 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, which still overwhelms the six-wheeler G-Class. Add to that the 5,490 lbs curb weight of the Audi, and not even a Hail Mary move will save the Merc. The standard trim of the car can cover 0-62 mph in just 3.8 seconds while its RSQ8-R guise can do that in 3.4 seconds.

As a bonus, the two also get into a tug-of-war that obviously favors the G63 AMG 6×6 as it drags the smaller car like a ragdoll.
