Mercedes-AMG G63, Jaguar F-Pace SVR and Alfa Romeo Stelvio QV fight in dragSeptember 23, 2019
YouTube channel carwow showed a triple race between German, English and Italian crossovers. Experts compared the dynamics of all-wheel drive off-road vehicles at start from a standstill and from a stroke, and also measured the effectiveness of the brakes.
Three off-road vehicles represent the leading automobile schools of the Old World. The British Jaguar F-Pace SVR is equipped with a 5.0-liter compressor V8 with 550 horsepower (680 Nm of torque) and weighs 1775 kilograms.
The legendary Mercedes-AMG G63 from Germany drives a 4.0-liter twin-supercharged V8 rated at 585 horsepower and 850 Nm of torque. “Gelendvagen” is much heavier than competitors: the curb weight reaches 2485 kilograms. The lightest and least powerful is the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio Verde with a 2.9-liter V6 Biturbo. The Italian crossover develops 510 forces (600 Nm of torque), but weighs Alfa Romeo 115 kilograms less than the Jaguar.
Three ruby SUVs took two starts and a photo finish to determine the winner: competitors passed a quarter mile with the same accuracy to the tenth time of 12.0. The outsider lost 0.3 seconds:
In the arrivals at a speed of 80.5 kilometers per hour (50 miles per hour), the paddle shifters played a decisive role, and the extreme braking at speeds of 113 kilometers per hour (70 miles per hour) was surprisingly unexpected.
Some viewers were unsatisfied with the braking distance measurement format: according to subscribers, when braking from high speeds, the driver’s reaction plays a key role, rather than the technical characteristics of the cars being tested. However, carwow channel bloggers are filming the show without claiming absolute truth.
