Two peas

Both cars are powered by twin-turbocharged V8 engines. The similarities continue with the peak torque outputs, which is 850 N.m apiece. Maximum power is rated as 450 kW for the Mercedes-AMG and an even 500 kW for the Porsche. The Porsche also has the added benefit of its hybrid component, which adds a wallop of torque before the turbochargers are fully on song. Both cars feature all-wheel-drive and launch control programmes to help them get off the line as quickly as possible.

Close battle

On paper this super estate drag race is a very close affair. Catch all the action in the video below as the two cars have a standing start race, a rolling race and a brake test challenge.
