Will the “evil” baby Suzuki Swift Sport be able to overtake the most powerful Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S?

January 1, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Enthusiasts decided to find out how quickly they need to accelerate the high-performance Japanese hatchback Suzuki Swift Sport, so that the most powerful German sedan Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S could no longer catch up with it.

  This time it’s a pretty … absurd race. Well, judge for yourself, the most powerful German Mercedes-AMG GT63 S sedan, as well as the Japanese city hatchback Suzuki Swift in the “charged” version of Sport, participate in the race. It would seem that the race is not entirely honest and in fact it is so – it’s like putting a small dog of the Chihuahua breed against any shepherd. The race organizers, realizing this, gave the Japanese car a head start – it starts the race at high speed, while the car from Mercedes completely stops when the race begins.

The question this race raises is how fast the Swift Sport should move so the GT 63 S cannot catch up with it.

There is no doubt that Mercedes has a higher level of performance, but watch this video to see if this is enough to defeat the Japanese hot hatchback.

As I said, the Suzuki Swift Sport is a high-performance version of the standard hatchback, under the hood of which a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is installed, which produces a maximum of 138 horsepower and 230 Nm of torque. A six-speed manual transmission transmits engine power to the front wheels. According to the assurances of the representatives of the automaker, the car needs 8.1 seconds to accelerate to 100 km / h. The initial price for this “evil” little car starts in Germany from 21,400 euros.

The German Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S sedan is a completely different car than the small Suzuki. Under its hood is a powerful 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine producing 630 hp. (900 Nm). A nine-speed automatic transmission sends torque to both axles at once. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h is 3.1 seconds. Prices start from 167 016.50 euros in Germany.
