AMG GT 63 S Vs AMG E63 S Drag Race

Watch an AMG GT 63 S Vs AMG E63 S Drag Race

Who doesn’t love aggressively gorgeous AMGs battling it out on the drag strip? This specific carwow drag racing video is pretty neat as it pits two very similar cars against each other, one just happens to have a ton of practicality, and the other has a sloping roofline for this coupe atmosphere. Underneath, however, they’re pretty much the same and frankly we wouldn’t mind having one of these cars. This station wagon would be my personal choice, however. So who will win when you pit a Mercedes-AMG GTS 4-Door against an AMG E63 S? Let’s find out.

Both cars offer considerable firepower under the hood, with matching 4-liter twin-turbo V8s, all-wheel drive, nine-speed automatic transmission and launch control. Differences are starting to appear when it comes to the state of the tune for each car, however, with the AMG E63 S wagon having 612 horsepower (456 kW) and 627 pound-feet (850 Nm) of torque. The AMG GTS 4-door trumps the wagon in the power torque area, offering a slight edge with 639 hp (476 kW) and 663 pound-feet (900 Nm) of torque.

The AMG GTS 4-door is heavier, tipping the scales at 4,674 pounds compared to the lighter station wagon at 4,277 pounds. In the UK, the price of the AMG E63 S starts at £ 100,000 (around $ 133,000), significantly cheaper than the heavier but more powerful 4-door AMG GTS, priced at £ 130,000 (around $ 172,960) .

Essentially, with the AMG GTS 4-Door, you’re paying more for less practicality and an increase in power, so does it all really make a difference when you put these two vehicles through a series of tests? One thing’s for sure, though, these 11-second-and-quarter-mile cars are still far more than adequate for most roads.
