Yes, the folks from CarWow in the United Kingdom are back with another drag race, this time lining up two very different contenders: the Mercedes-AMG E63 S Estate and the Jaguar F-Type SVR.
The British coupé, of course, employs a supercharged 5,0-litre V8 worth 423 kW and 700 N.m, while the German wagon’s twin-turbo 4,0-litre V8 churns out 450 kW and 850 N.m.
The E63 S, though, is a fair bit heavier than the SVR-badged F-Type. For the record, both feature all-wheel drive and automatic transmissions (the Mercedes-AMG uses a nine-speed dual-clutch with launch control while the Jaguar has an eight-speed torque converter).
Watch the video above to see the drag race, as well as a race from a rolling start and a braking test…
