BMW M5 Competition Vs Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-Door

The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-Door became the fastest four-door production car to finish a lap in Nurburgring back in 2018. It was unseated by the 2021 Porsche Panamera in 2020 but it eventually reclaimed the crown in its 2021 model year series. The 2018 AMG GT 63 S 4-Door’s superiority was recently challenged by its contemporary from BMW, the M5 Competition. Well, it should have been the M8 Gran Coupe but that’s all they’ve got for now. Before going on with the show, here’s a quick backgrounder on both cars: 2018 BMW M5 Competition The Bimmer weighs 1,950 kgs, and it is equipped with a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8.

2021 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 Vs Kia K5 GT-Line in a Drag Race

There was a time when a Mercedes-Benz car was seen as an “old man’s car”, and a Kia car was a laughing stock. Fast-forward today, the two have managed to shed off those brandings from critics thanks to their very attractive and reliable cars with good engine power. The Mercedes-Benz CLA was made to attract younger customers into the three-pointed star brand in 2013 while the Kia Optima has spawned the Kia K5 GT-Line whose top-range GT model can be seen as a much cheaper alternative to the BMW M3. So what happens when the CLA 250 and the K5 GT-Line are pitted against each other? Sam CarLegion on YouTube… Continue Reading »


Drag Race: Mercedes-AMG GT63 S 4-Door Vs Nissan GT-R Vs C8 Corvette

The Mercedes-AMG GT63 S 4-Door, Nissan GT-R, and C8 Corvette are indeed amazing cars. Each carries a unique advantage against the other. Being such huge fans of the said cars, we couldn’t help but wonder which one will win in a drag race. Before anything else, here’s a rundown on the advantages of each car: C8 Corvette The C8 certainly made a loud buzz online when it was unveiled, thanks to its very popular predecessor. Its 6.2-liter naturally-aspirated mid-mounted V8 engine produces 495 hp that goes to its rear wheels. The car may not have the least output compared to the GT-R and GT63 S but its good weight distribution,… Continue Reading »


Triple Threat Race: Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Vs Ferrari GTC4 Vs Aston Martin DBS

What happens when you pit the Mercedes SLR McLaren, Ferrari GTC4Lusso, and the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera against each other in a drag race? On paper, the Aston Martin DBS is the likely candidate to win the race. The 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 engine of the Superleggera that produces 715 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque is the most powerful among the bunch. All that is distributed to the rear wheels via an eight-speed torque converter automatic transmission. It is also the lightest with only a total weight of 1,700 kg, but it has no launch control. The Ferrari GTC4 may be heaviest with its 1,900 kg frame but it comes… Continue Reading »


Watch the Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG with 800 HP in a Drag Race

We just saw the official photos and key features of the new Mercedes-AMG GLE53 4MATIC+ sport utility vehicle, and everything about it looks pretty impressive. Before the GLE though was the M-Class showcasing the Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG as one of its range-topping trims. A new video surfaced in YouTube featuring a tuned Mercedes ML63 AMG racing several high-performance vehicles including its fellow Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG as well as the Volkswagen Golf, Porsche Macan and Corvette C7. If you think that the Merc SUV is too massive to be competing against the smaller cars, its 800 hp output within its 5.5-liter V8 tells a different story altogether. According to the Gumbal… Continue Reading »


RENNtech Mercedes-AMG GT R Smoked by the Chiron and 911.2 Turbo

What happens if you pit a Mercedes-AMG GT R against the Bugatti Chiron and the Porsche 911.2 Turbo. We already have a picture of what will happen to the car bearing the three-pointed star here, but what if it has undergone the forges of RENNtech? The AMG GT R carries a 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine capable of producing up to 577 hp. However, the one in the video here had its output boosted at 760 hp by RENNtech. While the numbers of the Mercedes may sound very impressive, it is still dwarfed by the 911.2 Turbo’s tuned engine that produces 800 hp. On the other hand, its power is nearly half only… Continue Reading »


Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe Vs Alfa Romeo Giulia QV in a Drag Race

Which one wins if you pit the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe against the Alfa Romeo Giulia QV in a drag race? The guys at Motor1 Turkey recently took both high-performance cars on the race track to find out the answer to this question. The cars featured in the video include a gray AMG C63 S Coupe and a sky blue Giulia QV. The cars were fitted with Pirelli P Zero tires but the Mercedes had wider tires, measuring 0.4-inches more than the Alfa Romeo car. On the other hand, the Giulia QV benefits from carbon-ceramic brakes that are light and offer better performance during braking. Beneath the hood of the AMG C63 S… Continue Reading »
