The folks over at CarWow have lined up the Mercedes-AMG A45 S and the G63 for an Affalterbach-flavoured drag race.

As a reminder, the A45 S employs a turbocharged 2,0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine offering 310 kW and 500 N.m to all four wheels via an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. That’s enough, says Benz’s performance division, for a sprint from standstill to 100 km/h in 3,9 seconds and a top speed of 270 km/h.

And at the other end of the scale? Well, the G63 features a twin-turbo 4,0-litre V8 directing 430 kW and 850 N.m to all four corners through a nine-speed automatic transmissions. Mercedes-AMG claims a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 4,5 seconds and a top speed of 220 km/h (or, optionally, 240 km/h). While the apex G-Wagen certainly has more power, it's also far heavier and not nearly as slippery through the air.

Check out the video above to see these two, very different AMG products take part in a couple of drag battles, two rolling races and a brake test...
