The authors of the Carwow YouTube channel decided to organize a race between four such cars as the new BMW M8 Gran Coupe Competition and Audi RS6, as well as the Mercedes-AMG E 63 Estate and the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo.

The BMW M8 Gran Coupe Competition is equipped with a 4.4-liter V8 turbo engine producing 625 hp. (750 Nm), which functions in conjunction with an 8-speed automatic transmission. In turn, the new Audi RS6 Avant is set in motion by a 600-horsepower (800 Nm) “biturbo-eight” of 4.0 liters, paired with an 8-band “automatic” and a 48-volt starter-generator.

The Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid is equipped with a hybrid power plant delivering 680 hp. (1000 Nm), which is combined with an 8-band robotic transmission. As for the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Estate, it is equipped with a 612-horsepower (850 Nm) turbocharged engine of 4.0 liters, together with a 9-speed automatic transmission.

In a quarter mile race, three cars were separated by 0.2 seconds. In any case, the winner could not be identified, and the race ended with the final score 2: 2.

In addition, it was recently noted that a rare Jaguar XE SV Project 8 and a Mercedes-AMG E 63 S station wagon were brought to drag. It should be emphasized that the car of the British automaker has a 600-horsepower 5.0-liter V8 compressor engine.
