Rare Jaguar and AMG station wagon brought to drag

The authors of the Carwow Youtube channel compared two, at first glance, completely different cars: the rare Jaguar XE SV Project 8 and the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S.

Despite the obvious differences in positioning, these “charged” models are very close in certain indicators.

The hardcore XE SV Project 8, with a circulation of only 300, has a compressor 600-horsepower 5.0-liter V8 engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The all-wheel drive sedan accelerates to the first “hundred” in 3.5 seconds and accelerates to a maximum of 320 km / h.

The flagship S-variant of the Mercedes-AMG E 63 station wagon, which is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine paired with a 9-band automatic transmission, produces 612 hp. At the same time, the model is more than a quarter of a ton heavier than the rival in this comparison, but the dynamics are the same: 3.5 seconds to 100 km / h. “Maximum speed” is 250 km / h.

The cars were compared at a drag distance of a quarter mile and in acceleration on the move (from 80 km / h), and also evaluated the effectiveness of their brakes – from approximately 113 km / h to a complete stop. in

It should be emphasized that quite recently, the specialists of the same carwow channel organized a racing race, in which such cars as the new Porsche 911 Turbo S, BMW M8 Competition, and also the forced Nissan GT-R took part.
